MOVIE WEEK: The Dark Knight Rises billboards...

Dark Knight Rises billboard
There's nothing like a little bit of a tease to start another MOVIE WEEK here at Daily Billboard.

Has it really been four years already since The Dark Knight's record-breaking box office performance in 2008?

This seems like a slightly odd image for a movie sequel called The Dark Knight Rises, as with Batman villain 'Bane' walking away from a shattered Bat-Cowl it looks more like The Dark Knight Defeated.

But then the tag line does read 'The Legend Ends', although Daily Billboard is confident Gotham's Caped Crusader will be rising from the ashes like a phoenix by movie's end.

This intriguing movie billboard was snapped at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank on March 3, 2012 and should get all Batfans excited.

After the overwhelming superhero success of The Avengers this year, there's even more anticipation for this final installment in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.

UPDATED: Hey Bat-fans, Daily Billboard is loving these two new billboards that have appeared in Warner Bros. Studios regular ad sites for The Dark Knight Rises this week.
Dark Knight Rises Bane billboard
The striking ads look like stills taken from the movie and feature Batman atop a police cruiser in the streets of Gotham and this film's big bad guy, 'Bane' (played by Tom Hardy), and his militia with their camouflage covered Batmobile Tumblers.

Both billboards were snapped along Sunset Boulevard at Holloway Drive on June 20, 2012, where they act like bookends across the street from each other in this battle of good vs. evil.

Daily Billboard loves this new Bat-sign billboard installation that was snapped along La Brea Avenue near Sunset Boulevard on June 23, 2012.

The dramatic, and no doubt expensive, installation looks like the iconic Bat Signal has literally exploded out of the billboard hoarding. It's a really clever, eye-catching visual and sure to be a fan pleaser too.

These other billboards were snapped the same day around the streets of L.A., with Christian Bale's Batman facing off with this film's new adversary, Bane.

This first head-to-head billboard was spied above Wilshire Boulevard at San Vicente Boulevard, whilst the other version featuring Batman and Gotham City's police force going up against Bane's army was photographed along Fairfax Avenue.

As yet aside from a bus shelter poster, Daily Billboard has yet to see a billboard featuring Anne Hathaway's 'Catwoman'.

There's just so much testosterone flying about you can't help but think a feline influence would help lighten things up in the skies of L.A.

UPDATED: Finally spotted a Catwoman creative on July 10, 2012, even if it's only a smaller ad at The Grove shopping center it's still pretty kick-ass with Anne Hathaway suited up and riding the Bat-Pod with all guns blazing.
