CHICAGO – “The Dark Knight Rises” director Christopher Nolan on Monday continued his trend of keeping things perplexing and provocative with the release of the film’s first official teaser poster. Fans didn’t even have to crack a viral marketing code to reveal it. Enjoy it below!

The film’s plot is still being kept tightly under wraps. All the while, the haunting and apocalyptic image in this official teaser poster is now open to wide speculation. In it, we see death, massacre and annihilated Gotham buildings. After Batman was classified a villain at the conclusion of “The Dark Knight,” will he indeed “rise” to save Gotham in Nolan’s final Batman film?

Will Gotham rumble and crumble? We shall see. We might even learn a little more about the film’s plot as soon as this Friday. We still maintain that the first teaser trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises” will likely be attached to “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opens this Friday.

In this teaser poster, we certainly see “The Dark Knight” city-scape traces blended with mind-bending “Inception” imagery (also directed by Nolan) and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”-like city destruction. The image appears like an optical illusion. In the top city scape, we’re looking down. In the bottom, it’s flipped and we’re looking up.

“The Dark Knight Rises” will again star Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox and Michael Caine as Alfred. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, Josh Pence, Diego Klattenhoff and Alon Aboutboul. Nestor Carbonell and Daniel Sunjata are currently rumored to be involved.

The film, which is again directed by Christopher Nolan, is scheduled for release on July 20, 2012. “The Dark Knight Rises” is written by David S. Goyer (story), Bob Kane (characters), Christopher Nolan (screenplay), Christopher Nolan (story) and Jonathan Nolan (screenplay) with original music from Hans Zimmer and cinematography by Wally Pfister.
