Everyone loves Batman right? Of all the superheroes (DC or otherwise...) Batman seems to be pretty universally loved. This is probably a discussion for another time (in private with your mates, not on the internet...ever) but nevertheless, it's irrefutable that the caped crusader is indirectly responsible for two of the finest superhero films ever made.

Christopher Nolan, in all his current momentum and genius, will likely cap things suitably off with The Dark Knight Rises but long before all us desperate fanboys/girls get our batclaws on the cinema ticket, we will have to put up with the tantalising drip-feed of teaser posters and trailers.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

The Dark Knight Rises is released (agonisingly) in Summer 2012
