Wanna See A Dead-Sexy New DARK KNIGHT Poster?!

Published at: April 24, 2008, 10:31 p.m. CST

Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here. I think a lot of people expected for today’s big DARK KNIGHT viral campaign reveal to be the new trailer, but I think we’re still a few weeks off from that. Instead, today brought an unexpected new poster, and it’s stunning:



You can find the poster at its original source if you use the WhySoSerious site.

    That masoleum thing

    by dancinggopher01

    is pretty old Mori. It was part of one of the other gay virals that led to nothing. Cool poster though. According to the other whysoserious site it says 4 days.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:08 p.m. CST

    that is pretty damn cool

    and kudos to warner for not ever adding the word Batman anywhere, i never thought this would be the final true title.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:09 p.m. CST

    Meh, at least it's not all brown

    by Drath

    The Why So Serious poster was more provocative, but I guess this is more mainstream and commercial. Sorry for the lack of love, but I'm still very much a Drew Struzan poster kind of guy (although I hate the faux-Struzan Photoshop posters like those LOTR one sheets).

    Any truth to this rumor of some Joker scenes being cut from the film because test audiences have expressed discomfort? Heard this rumor about a week ago, and have been patiently waiting for someone from AICN to dispel it.

    by jingle_balls

    Just having the building without batsy would have been cool enough for me. Something not quite right with him posing at the bottom. Still ridiculously cool poster and so far, I am loving the art department for the Dark Knight.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:19 p.m. CST

    FUCKING GREAT POSTER. 300? Sept 11?

    by UMAGA

    It looks as much like 300 as saaay..Vintage Point did, as in, not at all. Mori is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind on the virals.

    The first rule about The Dark Knight...

    by Flint_Ironstag

    Is that you don't talk about The Dark Knight. I'm really not into this. Not even remotely. I like the cool colors but overall it makes me think this movie is going to be "Die Hard" with Batman shooting Hans out a window at the end.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:26 p.m. CST

    that poster is going on my wall

    by Greenleaf1

    I really hope that line is a quote from the movie because that's a fantastic line (and the joker better say it). Amazing poster, and surprised that Caine gets second billing, his character must get a big boost. I need that new trailer.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:27 p.m. CST

    Awesome-O

    by Bass Ackwards

    I love it. Between this and the Why So Serious poster with the Joker behind the glass, this movie has a pretty killer ad campaign. I can't believe how well these guys just keep ramping up the kick ass levels.

  • April 24, 2008, 10:30 p.m. CST

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    Pretty intense. Style-wise, that's a lot different than the promotional images we've seen so far. I'm definitely getting the vibe that Gotham is in a total state of chaos during the events in TDK.

    People who claim they are a fan of only one artist for one sheets aren't really fans of the art, they just stick to the guy who painted the posters for their favorite movies. Not surprising around here people seem to be Drew Struzan fans. I wouldn't call him a hack though

    by Series7

    is as deadly as it sounds. Yeah at work we have this thing about when ever we take a pill we talk about having the Heath Ledger cocktail. I know its fuck up, but man work is so god damn boring all the time, its hard not to just say fucked up shit and making fun of Heath Ledger doesn't get me in trouble with HR. Yeah that had nothing to do with the movie, whatever, hopefully there will be no more trailers or tv spots and the whole thing will be a mystery. BUUUUTTT hollywood and letting movies speak for themselves is like asking the god to be nice to the devil. not gonna happen.

    Taken out of context, it'd be a cool poster. But I'm sorry. WHAT were the marketing ASSHOLES thinking? Not cool. It's bad enough people are going to be thinking of a dead Heath Ledger...but to add to it the death of 3,000 innocent people?

    Is This Really Going To Be PG-13?

    by El Fuego

    I mean seriously here, this movie is looking extremely fucking dark and I don't know how many kids are going to be seeing it as is. I'd hate for them to make cuts to get it the R only to have no kids show up anyway. And honestly, to find out it was rated R... people would flip, in a good way.

    The upper body lloks good, I think. I miss the bat symbol from the first movie, but the straight wings work with the look. The only thing I'm not into are the plates, or whatever, on the legs. The chest is busy enough. I would have gone the seams on the sides, not the front. But at least there are no nipples.

  • April 24, 2008, 11:28 p.m. CST

    First thing I thought was: Why's Bats out in daylight?

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    Poster's okay, but makes me think that BATMAN blew a hole in the building in the shape of the bat symbol. What for???<p>That's probably going to be the response of the average person, as well.<p>It's an okay poster, but doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It certainly doesn't merit the rabid praise you guys are giving it...

    You're kidding, right? That's so off base that it's not even remotely funny. If that poster included an image of a plane flying into that building, you might have had something. But as it is, you've got nothing. Try not to think too hard - it's just a poster.

    I don't think it's JUST the burning building bothering people.

    by greenstyle92

    It's the burned in Batman symbol and Batman posing in front of it, which without context, makes him look like a proud arsonist. Too me, the poster would be less bothersome if it were a smiley face in the building and it was Joker posing out front holding a flame thrower at crotch level or something. Then we could think, "Oh, you evil pervert you. I can't wait for Batman to kick your ass!" as it is, it sends a mixed message.

For my money, the best two Batman pictures were made in 92 and 93. Nolan just doesn't get the character at all, but can make decent movies, so it's better than the Schumacker films.

    cheesy Punisher ripoff

    by John L Raiser

    First, Batman wouldn't blow up a building, so it blowing up in a "bat symbol" just doesn't make any sense on many levels. Joker standing in front of the building doing it would be great, with hgis sense of ironic style. But my first impression was the "look", which to me was a ripoff of the "Punisher" icon of burning cars from the Thomas Jane version of the flick.

    by Nerdboy1423

    I know we're all supposed to think, "Oh, the Joker set the skyscraper on fire!", but my first instinct was to think, "Oh, look, the Batman turned into a terrorist and set a skyscraper on fire because he's insane." Seriously, guys, you could at least turn Batman around to have him looking at the skyscraper, having him think like us, "Oh, that darn Joker!" He's proudly standing in front of it though, and it gives the wrong message about him as a hero. Mixed visual signal. Anyone agree or Disagree?

I would counter that you are a liar and an unimaginitive moron- what you actually put up last night (which I only saw this morning UK time) was a smug fucking post saying that if anyone wanted to see the poster it was available elsewhere, and wouldn't be here for days. And the first thing you had posted was your usual fucking juvenile Harry abuse. I wouldn't give you credit for that either actually, because you had previously behaved like a complete cock-end. And not for the first time. To make matters worse you then mis-quote me, stick to it like a twat and re-use my fucking joke like you thought of it. <P>Now you have the fucking gall to come across hurt and self-righteous, like the site has wronged you in some way. <P>Jesus tittyfucking Christ, what is wrong with you?

    by The Bandit

    I agree that it wouldve been a lot better sans the bat standing in front of the building. Also Joker in a bodybag thats unzipped a little so that all we can see is maybe and eye and part of the smile would be an amazing poster.

    Superhero flix has an article saying Megan Gail has been "let go" from her contract for Justice League: Mortal, I had read on either this site or some other that Joel Silver's remark last week that JL:Mortal had been "tabled," may just mean its on hold, but that if the actors began to be released from their contracts it would mean the movie was dead. Meaning there will be NO JLOC directed by George Miller or staring a bunch of Tween stars! Thank you GOD!!! Ding Dong this shit looks dead! If WB has any sense at all it should be, until this Batman series is completed by Nolan, and we get at least one decent Superman film, which will hopefully be a full reboot.

    by strosmer

    there's no intention on the marketing department to reference 9-11 in this poster. seeing it as such is merely reading between the lines for the sake of sounding smart. the poster looks the way it looks to make people say - "wow, that's cool as fuck, i think i'd like to see that movie." any of you actually not going to see DK because you feel this poster is a shameful reference to a tragic event? nope, didn't think so.

    It looks to me..

    by malificus

    ..and I'm merely speculating here, that the Joker blows the image into the building, thereby dragging Bat Man down to his level in public perception and blurring the line between the two. Reference the joker line in the one teaser "To them you're just a freak....like me!" I think the Joker is trying a chicken or the egg-type thing here, you made me so you are responsible, I don't know, maybe overthinking. I do find it tragic that people are capable of such deep thinking that they can draw comparisons between a movie poster and 911 imagery but don't have the time to try and figure out how buildings that weren't even struck can collapse in virtual freefall. Don't want to open a can of worms but you people who are crying 911 foul really are ridiculous, if you'd spend half that time crying about Bush and his cronies maybe those assholes would be behind bars where they belong.

    No they didn't sit around a table and attempt to blatantly invoke 9-11 in a Batman poster. That having been said, they knew damn well that this poster does play off on 9-11 themes. And you know what? That's not necessarily a bad thing. The joker character is all about making horrific, tasteless jokes. So this poster makes sense and is fitting because it channels 9-11 and thereby gives us a hint of how much of a stomach punch Nolan's Joker is going to deliver this summer. Just a thought.

Looking at it now, I suppose it's rather unfortunate that the Bat-symbol does resemble the outline of one of the Twin Tower planes. But I guess I'm the insensitive asshole because 9-11 was the furthest thing from my mind when I first saw this image.<P>Quote: "The joker character is all about making horrific, tasteless jokes."<P>True.

    I like the idea of the poster playing off of 9-11 themes introducing how scary and awful Ledger's take on the joker will be. Is that what the ad wizards who created this actually intended? I doubt it. Fires break out all the time in office buildings and this looks like any other instance of when they happen dozens of times around the world.<br> <br> You know what the bigger gripe Rickey has with the poster? The font. Seriously, no joke here. It's a plain and uninteresting font. I'm not asking for the crappy Schumacher font they used in "Batman Forver" and "Batman and Robin," but something a little more dark & heroic would be cool...

    I agree on the 9/11 Themes

    by mooseaka

    Come on, let's just accept that this poster invokes 9/11 imagery and move on. It's not "just a building on fire" and people aren't overreacting. It's just plain and simple - this image invokes a lot of things the whole world witnessed on 9/11.<p><p> -A plane shaped hole in the middle of a big boxy high rise building. <p>-The image of a twisted, burnt out building frame (particularly in the middle of the bat logo) <p>-The fact that it is in the middle of the building invokes the image of burning and smoke coming from the middle of the WTC towers <p>-The smoke and debris in the air and falling to the ground below <P>-Even the tag line "Welcome to a World Without Rules" invokes 9/11. Who didn't watch it all unfold on TV and think to themselves that the rules of the world changed that day. How many people had the capacity to imagine something as awful as deliberately flying a plane loaded with innocent people into a building with innocent people, destroying both at the same time? That is a world without rules.<P><P> Now the big caveat. I don't really care that they did this in this poster, and frankly, if there was any actual intent to invoke 9/11, I'm sure they realized that the risks probably outweighed the rewards of taking that approach. But let's not pretend it's not there.

    by BackStJoe

    It helps to educate yourself... Building 7 EXPLODED because Mayor Guiliani, in all his wisdom, had his emergency office in the building. The extra fuel tanks buried underneath it caught some of that "small fire" and blew the building up. This is all documented, but you freaks would rather pretend something more sinister went on. As for the main towers, several hours after they fell the engineer who designed them was on the news. He said they performed exactly as designed: they imploded. The planes were full of fuel, weakened the steel, and caused the floors to buckle. The weight brough each floor down upon each other. Period. And the poster? Has nothing to do with 9/11.

    9/11 food for thought.........

    by Underoos Hero

    Think about this guys.Larry Silverstein of Silverstein Properties was the lease holder of the Twin Towers complex and this includes building number 7. It is a fact that Larry gave a "pull" order just hours after building 7 caught fire. To "pull" is a term used by demolition companies when it is time to bring a building down. Now you tell me how a team of demo experts had time to go into a burning building a set charges in the proper places and bring building 7 down. It takes months of planning. Think about it.

  • April 25, 2008, 2:33 p.m. CST

    To add to that...

    by Underoos Hero

    One clause in Silverstein Properties' insurance policies for the new WTC holdings soon proved instrumental. Quoting the British Financial Times of September 14, 2001, the American Reporter wrote that ‘ the lease has an all-important escape clause: If the buildings are struck by “an act of terrorism”, the new owners' obligations under the lease are void. As a result, the new owners are not required to make any payments under their lease, but they will be able to collect on the loss of the buildings that collapsed or were otherwise destroyed and damaged in the attacks. ’ [9] Silverstein Properties is still contesting the amount of pay-out due for destruction of the Twin Towers—$3.55 billion for one ‘occurrence’ or $7.1 billion for two ‘occurrences’. The “terrorism” clause in his lease has given Larry Silverstein leverage in negotiating his new deal for the site.

    by toadkillerdog

    Controlled demolition experts reject the notion that "pull it" is a term used in building implosions. The only context that "pull" has been used in building demolition is for small buildings (a few stories tall), where construction crews attach long cables to pre-weaken a structure and literally pull it down with bulldozers and other equipment. "Pull" is also used by firefighters in reference to "pulling firefighters out of a building", because the situation is too dangerous. It is in this context that Silverstein used the term "pull it".

    by LaserPants

    It was a conspiracy of ignorance; pretending they didn't know it was going to happen even though we have proof they did know -- the memo. <br><br> What is complete bullshit, though, is the whole "bombs strapped to planes" thing. I think that a very small group of people -- Bush, Cheney, Rove, a few others -- chose to ignore the intelligence knowing that if the attack did occur, they would be able to further their goals. The really hilarious tragic irony being that they've been able to start a war, but are getting their asses kicked, and have pretty much ruined any shred of credibility the Republicans may have once had. In short: they not only fucked over the country, they fucked over themselves. But, then again, they're still ultra-wealthy, so what do they care? They're scorched-earthers all the way. All the wacked out moonbat ultraright winger neo-cons are -- the ultimate nihilists.

    On that point there is some validity, even if all one points to is the fact they were warned well ahead of time of an impending attack. I'm by no means a Bush supporter. I do have a severe distaste for these guys who try to follow every conspiracy lead and analyze every bit of information that god knows who puts out there in blind pursuit of a big ol' "I told ya so." That's just disrespectful to the victims of the tragedy in my opinion. But look at what these talkbacks turn into. We should be rejoicing in the beauty of this brilliant DK poster, and here we squabble about topics not one of us has any authority upon. T'would be nice to keep the discussion to things that are just cool. That poster, btw, rings "ain't it cool" across the land. Come on, hit me! It will be one glory hole of a movie, oh yes indeed.

    Condoleeza Rice, the National Security Advisor at the time, deliberately ignored the 8/01 memo entitled "Osama bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside the United States" ... and yet there are geniuses who actually want her to run now as Vice President. The dumbing down of America continues unabated.

    I'll keep it short so as to avoid dragging this TB off the track further ... I've said this before too ... a full, comprehensive no-holds barred investigation has yet to be conducted. Bush and Cheney were interviewed behind closed doors, but refused to do so under oath. There is some dark truth hidden in that act alone. <p> And though I can't speak for other families, a relative of mine did perish at the WTC and believe me, the pursuit for absolute truth is not disrespectful, but really the opposite. Look at Pat Tillman's family. They pursued the painful truth instead of letting Rumsfeld cover things up with some half-hearted tributes. They, and the country, were owed the truth, and thank goodness they got it.

It is idiots like yourself who will see something happen right in front of you and because your mind is so narrow you will fail to acknowledge it ever happened.

    Societies throughout history have always needed a rule book. People have needed guidelines to follow or else the mob mentality becomes an apocalypse. Most people, the average person needs to be told what is cool, what to listen too, what to wear and see...etc. Most of you know this but do not truly understand the nature of what you think you know. The powers to be, the true powers to be, and there have been very few and are still very few, have understood this since inception. Why do they get it so well when the rest of the mindless don't? Because thanks to family bloodlines and strict adhearence to codes created by certain and select secret orders, the true knowledge of the pyschosis of man is told and past on to these selcect few. This and monetary fuel is what keeps these powers in power. Again you might have heard of this theory or have even seen it in Davinci Code (and now you're all knowing...n'such) but as I said, you don't truly understand what you are witnessing. Therefore conspiracy is a reality concealed in the brightness of the day. One hint...Illuminati? Now keep in mind this order has become the most popular due to certain movies but I had to throw it in for marketing purposes you understand. DO your homework kids.

    Seriously, so what? Then it is probably conveying the emotion they wanted you to feel when looking at a big building with a huge fiery bat-shaped hole in it. In fact, I'd argue that this poster would have been less impactful pre-9/11 because so many people wouldn't have the collective knowledge of what that kind of catastrophe really means. <p> Then again, this is one building that is badly damaged, but still standing, so not really the same thing at all. But if it invokes thoughts of 9/11, good. I assume the creators/approves of this poster wanted you to realize there is some serious shit going down in Gotham this time and someone's tryign to make it look like Batman might be responsible.

    I couldn't convince anyone about 911

    by malificus

    any more than I could make someone change their tune about whether the poster is any good. The poster's sweet, but I'm getting dubious as time goes by. As far as 911 I can't convince anyone who doesn't already feel based on the feeling deep in their gut, that that was some fucked up government sponsored shit. Problem/reaction/solution, since the beginning of time. You can only watch some jackass pretend to make a coin disappear before you slap it out of the hand that's fakin' it. I'm not buying it, any of it. From the WMD's, to the skyrocketing yet-plentiful gas, to the Iran threat to the plunging fiat dollar, my eyes are wide open and it's all racket and it makes me sick that mankind is still no better than vengeange, lies and mass murder and still can't see beyond it all. Viet Nam wasn't that long ago, this shit's far worse and they don't even bother trying to lie about it any more, they just sneer and smirk and look down from their thrones in blithe contempt at the 'useless breathers'. But I am not, and never will be, and I at least have my own mind and can still feel outrage at least, not quite bought and sold enough to at least CARE.

That said, Yes, Virginia, Iraq Was Qn Oil War. There's a finite amount of desirable crude (as opposed to far less profitable tar sand and shale) beneath the ground, and a bunch of grouches sit atop it (AKA OPEC), so Exxon panicked and had their boy invade the Middle East. Didn't go so well, and now the shit sandwich is being passed around like a sloppy joe in a concentration camp.

Yes, taken out of context, it does look as though Batman has scarred the side of a building and is very proud of it.<br><br> But I keep thinking about the image, about the dramatic tagline, Nolan's comments about "escalation" and the "post-9/11" comments of Talkbackers here and it makes me wonder... <br><br> How far would this Batman go to stop a maniac like The Joker from terrorising Gotham? (Apologies if the point has already been made - I can see plenty of comments above and I didn't have time to go through them all :)

    9/11 - controlled demolision

    by teddy_duchamp

    I highly recommend the film 'zeitgeist -the movie' and the the brilliant 9 part series on You Tube called: 911 mysteries. both films opened my already ajar mind to the truth about that terrible day. as for that poster........AWESOME I cannot wait to see this movie and I'm going to attempt a personal first by not watching the new trailer or any TV spots.

    You sure have a dick fetish there. I can help you with that. I can fuck that bearded nerd mouth of yours and pull that pony tail for you while I yell out Batman Begins sucks. Then if you'd really like to get nasty you can work me up real good like and I can drop the kids off on your comic book collection. Without the plastic coverings ofcourse.

    Sorry for the pun guys but I can't be the only one getting tired of these camp batfilms! Pleaze no more Robin - nipples on batsuit - and neon lights (I'm sure all true fanboys will agree with me). What we need is someone to come along and do it proper, it doesn't have to be exactly like the original tv show, but at least try to keep the original spirit. Viva Batman.

    Poster evokes idea of escalation, grander scale than previous fi

    by strosmer

    That's what I'm focused on - escalation. This is not the best movie poster ever made, but it as an A+, as is the entire marketing campaign for this movie. The poster evokes the theme of the next film, and what has me so excited about seeing The Dark Knight, is the fact that, in true comic book fashion, we are picking right up from where we left off. Look at what's going on in the poster, the angle at which it is shot. Escalation. Think of the final scene in Batman Begins - on Gotham’s rooftops Gordon explains to Batman about escalation, that in him the Mob actually has a threat on its hands and they’ll need to resort to some new tactics to keep business running as usual (also touched upon in the voice-over in the logo-only teaser) . The genius of this marketing campaign, and what gives me confidence this movie will deliver is the fact that it remains close to the story unfolding in this franchise, and bridges the idea of escalation to the next film. Any good movie poster informs the audience what it has to look forward to in the picture. This particular official one-sheet informs me – the shit has hit the fan in Gotham, the Joker, a ruthless prankster and master frame artist, is behind the chaos, and here’s Batman, he’s only just begun as a superhero. <br>Oops! Batman's really done it now. City’s gonna burn! Ah-Hehehehehehehehehehehehe. <br>I'm so there.<br>Of course, all this begs the question – how will The Dark Knight end, and how will Batman change further? Regardless of whether you liked Batman Begins or not, this franchise tells a compelling story. The Dark Knight is shaping up to be the movie of the summer in my eyes. Even beyond Indiana Jones, of which I feel is as big an event as any in movies. I am a huge fan and believe the idea of another adventure after 20 years is just insane, and I'll anxiously see it on that premise alone. But in The Dark Knight, things are definitely stepping up, stepping up not only in terms of the villain, the action and effects, and the actors (what better cast can you ask for?), but in terms of who Batman is and what he ultimately, through this franchise, becomes. Can we hope to see Batman become so skilled in fighting the baddies that he changes costumes again by film’s end and appears in a shot similar to the one seen at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman the very moment before the screen cuts to black and the title, The Dark Knight, hits in tiny white type as the main score kicks on full blast? I honestly do not know. Right now, I'm thinking in terms of how Christopher Nolan has structured things in the franchise thus far and speculating on that premise, and asking myself - what happens in the next thrilling episode in the adventures of the Caped Crusader? Will he escape the evil Joker? Will the last film be titled The Caped Crusader? Tune in next time, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel.

    First trailer was ok

    by AntoniusBloc

    But didn't give me the impression this is going to be better than Batman Begins. Shia and an elderly Indy vs. aliens. Hancock looks like a cliche' of every superhero film already released, and the fact that he's an alchoholic doesnn't make those re-hashed scenes look any less unoriginal. Iron Man could be a surprise, but I think the king of the summer blockbusters will be a Prince.

    Great post! As much as I'm confident TDK will be full of great spectacle, the question of how Batman/Bruce Wayne will be developed in this film is the most fascinating one to me.

    by NuteG

    Definitely. I'll also be interested in seeing the kinds of narrative devices Nolan uses in this latest film. Will he attempt something like "Following" and "The Prestige", where events are depicted out of chronological order, or will it be more straightforward? That's why I especially prefer the first half of "Batman Begins" - I think they made some risky (?) choices with the narrative style you don't normally see in a huge event movie.

    Somebody alert me.......

    by Half-Baked-Goggle-Box-Do-Gooder

    ....when Faux News starts hyperventilating over this poster. One of their cross-eyed asskissers will be blithering about "Disrespectful to September 11th" and "Treasonous" and "This doesn't look good for Warner Brothers' summer tentpole film", and "How could Bruce Wayne, being a white male American billionaire and therefore a Perfect Creation of God, POSSIBLY be morally dubious or even partly responsible for any of the situations that he finds himself in?" Then we can all start a tail-chasing debate about media conspiracies and how Fox is just trying to pimp the new "X-Files" and the likely color of the Joker's jockstrap. I like the poster, myself. It raises more questions than it answers, which means that either the film is smart too, or just the advertising campaign. I'm expecting the former.......
