A couple weeks ago we got our first look at the first official photo of Tom Hardy as Bane in the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises from a new viral campaign game from the film. This new viral campaign has been tagged #TheFireRises … and seems tied to a You Tube account by the same name that has been releasing short videos seemingly to promote the film. Click below to check out 2 videos that seem Bane-related from this new The Fire Rises viral campaign for The Dark Knight Rises.

It’s unknown if these videos are officially part of the Dark Knight Rises viral campaign or if they are just clever fan videos but one thing’s for sure … the next year is going to be chock full of these kinds of mysterious offerings. The Dark Knight Rises won’t hit theaters for over a year … let the games begin.
As for these videos … what do y’all think? Impressed?
