‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Theatrical Posters / Banners (Photos)

The third installment of director Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” film series is coming this summer, in just over two months. Are you ready? We are.

Yahoo! Movies got a first look at three new character banner/posters from “The Dark Knight Rises,” the final chapter of the trilogy.

Each banner shows one of the three lead characters — Catwoman, Batman, and Bane — facing the camera against an ominous sky as rain and debris fall down on them. Notably, each figure has their eyes hidden in shadow, giving them an impenetrable air of mystery. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, what does it mean that we can’t see theirs? It gives the impression that the battle for Gotham City could come with a cost: either their lives, or their very humanity.

This poster featuring Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle gives one of the best looks yet at her catsuit. You can see the textured fabric, her belt (which looks not too dissimilar to Batman’s utility belt), and the goggles that hide her face and give the appearance of cat’s ears on her head. Click through to see more of the newly revealed banners.

We’ve also included previously released theatrical posters since the film was announced.

“The Dark Knight Rises” hits theaters July 20th.
