Dark Knight Rises on Delancey

Posted on: October 6th, 2011 at 11:18 am by

Fret not, Delancey dwellers.  The signal spotlights are out. Batman is coming to protect the neighborhood from evil-doers, choosing the Colossal facade of 77 Delancey as his primary post.  We’ve seen beers, liquors, and video games likewise advertised on this facade, and the latest is no exception.  Once complete, the new mural will promote the forthcoming video game, Batman: Arkham City.

Indeed. As we speak, the Dark Knight is still rising on Delancey. Yesterday morning, the platform rigs were moored to the rooftop, with paint-by-numbers artists filling the gaps.  There’s still plenty of work to be done, as only the top third of the superhero mural is complete.

The movie this game is intended to plug – Dark Knight Rises – is Christopher Nolan’s third and likely final effort for the comic book franchise. Theatrical release date is currently scheduled for July 2012.

Holy LES ad space, Batman!
