It's not exactly unusual marketing.
Think you misunderstood. Could have been just me, but it looked to me that WB made an agressive approach in their advertisements to show scenes/stills of the costumed characters in scenes where they are together and interacting with one another. This is in contrast with TDK and particularly BB. If those films would have came out when TDKR did, I think you would have seen that approach and Two-Face being in the film wouldnt have been shrouded in secrecy and the same with Neeson. Just a subtle observation on the evolution of the series marketing campaign in correlation with the GAs expectations for CB movies since TDK.
