I like that poster. I hope it means Bane really does break Batman's back.

the film is titled 'The Dark Knight Rises' not 'The Dark Knight Dies' I think the name of tge film would be a complete waste if indeed Nolan's vision is for Batman to die. It wouldn't be unlike Nolan and would go against the Batman mythology to kill him off but he has stated that it is a trilogy so he may very well kill off the bat, if indeed he is killed I can assure you it will end up on a hopeful note with Bane dead and perhaps Catwoman to continue his work but no way, NO WAY would Bane outright beat the bat.
Btw 'Mission Impossible' IMAX will have the prologue attached but 'Sherlock Holmes' is to have the new trailer...I''d rather forgo the first 8 minutes of the film and see the preview and and withstand the blue balls of the beginning of the film til July.

NEXT SUMMER, the Dark Knight will rise in IMAX — and audiences can get a glimpse of him on Friday.
The six-minute prologue to next summer’s epic Batman drama “The Dark Knight Rises” was unveiled in New York Monday, prior to the clip’s exclusive showing at IMAX theaters beginning this weekend.
It’s the same tactic director Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. studios used with 2008’s “The Dark Knight.” That clip gave fans the first glimpse of Heath Ledger’s Joker, while the new one introduces the film’s main villain, Bane (Tom Hardy) — a musclebound thug who breathes a strength-enhancing drug through a gas mask-like apparatus.
In the footage shown at Lincoln Square 13 on the upper West Side, the IMAX impact really kicked in after a quick montage of Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) eulogizing Harvey Dent (played by Aaron Eckhart in the previous film).
In a thrilling sequence set on a plane, Bane and his henchmen turn the tables on CIA agents and appear to get something valuable back — we’re not told what — during a prisoner exchange.
Then the plane tilts as it plummets and a vertiginous fight breaks out. Additional footage shows Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle, in full Catwoman regalia; Bane in a long coat atop a Gotham City staircase, preparing for battle; what looks to be a flying version of the Batmobile; and a scene of Bane walking away with the busted cowl of Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale) — in a possible allusion to a DC Comics storyline from the early ’90s, when Bane notoriously broke Batman’s back.
The movie has recently been filming in New York, around Zuccotti Park and Wall Street.
Nolan commented that his love of 70mm IMAX technology “recaptures that feeling from childhood of being immersed in a film. It gives me as a filmmaker a chance to be where I want to be.”
