Empire covers for The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises - Bane

It’s been a while since we’ve had anything other than grainy set photos or rumours to report on the third chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises. Now Empire has posted two of their upcoming covers featuring character profiles of Batman and Bane.

While we already know what both characters are going to look like, this offers a bit of a detailed close-up, along with a piece of weaponry or other gadget that Batman will be carrying in the film.

The Dark Knight Rises is released on 19 July 2012 in Australia from Roadshow.
