The studio behind "The Dark Knight Rises" is removing all images and references to guns from all "Batman" movie trailers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... the honchos at Warner Bros. gave the order just a few hours after the shooting in Colorado this morning.

We're told the studio is hoping to replace the current made for TV trailers with the gun-free version as soon as possible.

We've called Warner Bros. for comment -- so far, no word back.

I honestly think that the guns that are shown in the trailer will not offend anyone violence has been around all of us for years and years. It just depends on what you do with it.

Removing the guns for the movie is not going to solved anything the damage is done... Movie has to be movies and some people need professional help!!

Warner Bros always seizes the opportunity for publicity, making these fake @ss adjustments just to get on the papers.

Just for that I'm not going to watch the movie.

What usually happens when people without guns stand up to people *with* guns.

Like it matters? Thats not what broke the cameals back..It's very likely this is the same scenario as Charles Whitman who had a astrocytoma brain tumor. Which caused his aggression.

I understand WB doing that out of respect for the people who were gunned down but it's not going to stop something like this, God forbid, from happening again ,not necessarily with this movie but with any movie.
It's the minds of a lot of people that's f*cked up. ANYTHING can set them off.
Even if all guns disappeared these manics would find something else to use to kill a bunch of people.

Complete B.S., Let's blame it on everything else except for the person who is really at fault. The movie nor did the makers of the movie pulled the trigger, some complete a**hole did and now for one person's mistake every one pays. Good ole' USA.

Hollywood idiots! Make no more movies about murderers, guns, knives, axes, etc. It wouldn't make a difference the movies suck these days. A bunch of garbage I never pay to go see.

Bottom line...Did the people that got out get their 10 dollars back or a rain check? "Man, I left a large popcorn and a large soda in there too!" "That's 25 bucks I'm out!" "Where's the manager?"

Now they're overreacting and feeding into some people's fears.
