Warner Bros. announces ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Tumbler and Bat-Pod tour

How’s this for some marketing? Warner Bros. announced today that The Dark Knight Rises fans will have a chance to see the Tumbler and Bat-Pod up close and personal as part of a coast-to-coast tour leading up to the July 20th release of The Dark Knight Rises. Here’s the press release:

BURBANK, Calif., May 10, 2012 — Fans who have been eagerly awaiting the July 20 release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod, which are rolling out on a coast-to-coast tour, sponsored by Mountain Dew and IMAX(R).

Both the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod have served as high-powered modes of transportation for Batman in Christopher Nolan’s earlier blockbusters–with the Tumbler first appearing in “Batman Begins,” and the Bat-Pod being introduced in “The Dark Knight.” They will both be featured in different ways in the hugely anticipated finale to the director’s Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises.”
