‘Dark Knight Rises’ poster implies the ‘end’ of Batman

Will this be the end of Batman?

Christopher Nolan is adamant that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ will be his last Batman film, but just how focused is he on making sure that no other Batman films could pick up his story in the future?

Nolan has just released a brand new poster with the tag line ‘The Legend Ends’ featuring Tom Hardy’s character of Bane walking away from the shattered mask of Batman.  The poster has fans wondering if Nolan is planning on ending Batman’s life in the film and therefore ensuring that no production houses can continue his story without him.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ will be coming to theaters in the summer of 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anne Hathaway.
