After the lacklustre release of a new one-sheet poster for “The Dark Knight Rises” earlier that was pretty much universally hated by everyone, Warner Bros have tried to make it up to us with the release of six brand-new character posters.

Debuting over at Yahoo Movies comes the new character posters of Christian Bale’s Batman, Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman and Tom Hardy’s physically bloody intimidating Bane.

Additionally, the film’s official French Facebook page has also unveiled a further three new character posters.

You can see them all in our gallery below;

“The Dark Knight Rises” opens in theatres and IMAX cinemas from July 20th, 2012. The final entry in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard.

Batman fans – what do you make of these new character posters? Do they make up for the release of the poor poster earlier? Or are we still disappointed that these don’t at all live up to the expectations from the marketing campaign of “The Dark Knight”.
