Ahead of the premiere next week of the six-minute prologue for "The Dark Knight Rises," Warner Bros. has released a second teaser poster for the conclusion of director Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Featuring the ominous words "The Legend Ends," the poster depicts Bane (played by Tom Hardy) walking away from Batman's broken cowl, an image reminiscent of a sequence from the film described Friday by CBR News.

The movie's six-minute prologue debuts Friday in the United States and Canada and Dec. 21 in the United Kingdom on select 70mm IMAX screens with "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol." Fans also can secure invitations through the Operation Early Bird viral website to advance screenings on Tuesday.

Opening July 20, "The Dark Knight Rises" also stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
