The Next Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Poster

Yesterday, Warner Bros. released the teaser poster for the next film in the Batman series: The Dark Knight Rises. Clever words, clever use of negative space, and clever withholding of information. Often Nolan's posters feature an intriguing image, and you have to search for the title. Nolan's Batmans have always been shrouded in secrecy—from rumored villains and plot-lines to guerrilla-style campaigns, they keep us wondering and waiting to see what will be next, and the strategy works.
