Entertainment Weekly (via the lovely folks at CBM) have released a new batch of images as part of their summer Movie Preview issue from the final Christopher Nolan Batman movie know to us all as The Dark Knight Rises. The movie is possibly the most anticipated of the year so far (although after seeing 20 minutes of footage from Prometheus the other day, I’m now not sure which I want to see more!).

These new images come from the publication and have been scanned so aren’t the greatest quality in the world but you’ll get the idea. They feature most of the main cast which includes Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway who plays Catwoman.
