With advance tickets kicking off this week, The Dark Knight Rises has gone just a bit silent this week after a major marketing push recently. With plenty of TV spots already airing, many are buying their tickets to make sure they’ll be seeing the first screening of the final Batman/Nolan combo. There’s plenty of mystery left to uncover in the upcoming superhero noire epic, and it seems Warner Brothers is not afraid to unveil just a few more surprises. Today, not only has another new TV spot been released with some fresh footage, but some photos have been posted that show both Batman’s new flying vehicle The Bat, and Bane’s own special tech.

Meanwhile, the photos below comes from SuperheroHype as they’ve obtained the art book The Dark Knight Manual. There are some individual specs of The Bat, while the final image is said to simply be Bane’s “secret weapon”. This is likely the device that destroys the ground underneath Gotham’s football stadium as seen in the trailer, but ultimately this has yet to be confirmed.
