A Batman film marketing the villain, one of the most recognizable comic book anti heroes/villains (depending on writing) and Batman means it's trying to be more comic book-y? I mean, I found TDKR the most comic book like myself but marketing Batman, Bane and Catwoman is like how they marketed Batman, Joker and Two Face for TDK. The hero and the two villains/foils. It's not exactly unusual marketing.
