I'm with you on this. Warner Bros must think pretty lowly of the general public. Do they really think that people wouldn't catch on to the idea that it is a continuation of the Dark Knight without that being in the title? I'm sure advertising it as the sequel would have been good enough.
And if they wanted "Rises" in there really bad, they could have made it "Rise of the Caped Crusader" or "The Caped Crusader Rises." Its just awkward that they completely changed the direction of the name after Batman Begins, but didn't do the same for this one.
