Although they are the same photos from the Empire magazine spread issued a few weeks ago, they aren’t mere scans and they don’t have annoying text over the important parts.

Feast your eyes! Like we mentioned above, there’s nothing new here but the pictures are just so gosh-darned pretty in high resolution. Thanks to Warner Brothers (via CBM) for the photos!

So what do you think? Excellent shots of Bane, Batman, the Batpod, Batman’s weird light-gun thing (A taser? A Flashlight? A memory neuralizer?) and several dead (or knocked out) mercenaries. Which is your favorite?
