Now that the strength of The Avengers is finally starting to wane, Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan are following in tradition of The Dark Knight with a steady stream of tie-in posters, hidden tidbits and secret viral material for their upcoming trilogy conclusion: The Dark Knight Rises.
A member of the aptly named site Batman-News had just discovered one such Easter Egg, with a fantastic new Catwoman poster.
Said savvy reader discovered a QR (Quick Response) code at the bottom of a recent poster which leads us to the site: http://www.thedarkknightrises.com/catwomanbig.jpg and subsequently to this smoking new poster.
The “steel rain” aesthetic in this poster continues the theme carried along with most of the promo material, while adding in a serrated stiletto heel, a shattered batman symbol and a seductive splash of red courtesy of some feline lip prints and a few suggestive “x’s” – no hugs?
This will be far from the last surprise tease we get from Nolan and co. and as things propel towards July 20 I’m certain buzz will reach nothing short of a (cat scratch) fever pitch.
