Finally: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES’ Batman And Bane Revealed!

Oh wait, we're already incredibly familiar with these guys.

Empire Magazine has two covers for its latest issue - one with Batman, one with Bane. Officially this is probably a fairly big deal unveiling, but in reality we've all seen so many paparrazzi photos of both characters that it's sort of a snooze.

What is probably much more interesting is Empire's set visit to The Dark Knight Rises. We're about to get to that point in the marketing where stuff gets revealed, and many of the elements at which we have only been guessing will soon become plain as day. This Empire report is surely just the beginning. 

In the meantime, pretend to be really excited about these covers. Is Batman holding a black light gun, one of those things you use to check for semen stains?
