Somebody on the main fan site made a pretty good observation about the masks Catwoman, Batman and Bane are wearing. He pointed out that the area of the face these masks cover could suggest a theme of see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
Ancient Eastern philosophy against a futuristic Gotham City backdrop? I like.
Those banners, man...it's full on f*cking war in Gotham. I also loved seeing the fighter jets fly past the skyline with smoke bellowing out from the city at the end of the Catwoman TV spot. Nolan truly is going out with a bang.
@Vanilla Shake Yeah. The tumblers racing through the streets, the "Bat" chasing them, the Batpod and jets flying by. This is going to be epic. I wonder if Nolan is going to finish everything, or if he's gonna leave the film on a cliff hanger for someone else to eventually take over.

Yeah but still, you can't help but wonder. The poster means something but if not the obvious, what then?
I've noticed a small pattern from the previous movies with the villains. You got the main one who's defeated near the end of the film, then you got the secondary one who sprouts out of nowhere or changes their spots.
BB: Scarecrow ---> Ra's TDK: The Joker ---> Two Face TDKR: Bane ---> ____ (Catwoman, maybe?)
So who is all going to the midnight release to see this? I know I'm not, because most of the time people ruin it for everyone else by being obnoxious. I'll most likely end up going early the following Sunday, which is when less people will be there. I've waited too long for this movie, and I'm not going to have it ruined by some group of annoying, prepubescent teenagers.
Tickets go on sale here on June 11th, and I plan on buying them quite early. I'm watching Batman Begins and The Dark Knight at home in surround sound, heading to the theater, possibly getting baked in the parking lot (or maybe before I leave - but I'd rather smoke some bud not too long before the film starts), and experience what will hopefully leave me even more amazed at what I had just seen than I did when I saw TDK and even Inception on opening day. And from the looks of things, it's going to do just that.
I can't f*cking wait for the final brawl between Batman and Bane with the city just in turmoil behind them that they've been building up for in the previews.
And I really hope the ending is similar to TDK's, with Gordon giving another terrific monologue over a montage of the characters with the same theme music. Maybe it could be about how the Batman is a legend. I think if it's done right it'd be the perfect ending to the trilogy.
