Pittsburgh is under siege. “The Dark Knight Rises” is filming there the next few weeks, and already we are getting leaked set photos that give us a glimpse into some of the action. No fewer than three Tumblers — still camo colored, not black — have been spotted, as well as a Batpod.
There was also a pretty kick-ass fight scene filmed over the weekend, and several photos like the one below made it on-line. The pics show Batman and Bane going at it in hand-to-hand melee, with a crowd of cops and unidentified baddies joining in all around them. The whole scene looks pretty crazy. There’s even a bit of video of Batman and Bane choreographing the fight, which is pretty interesting as well.
This scene could be a prison break, which was rumored when shooting first began. Christopher Nolan and company also will film action scenes at a football game with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Heinz Field as the setting.
Photos of Marion Cotillard also were captured, but offer little to confirm or deny rumors she will portray Talia al Ghul in the film. And as of yet? Still no shots of Anne Hathaway in the cat-suit. Crap. But there are plenty of photos and video as well, if you want more.
“The Dark Knight Rises” stars Christian Bale (Batman/Bruce Wayne), Tom Hardy (Bane), Gary Oldman (James Gordon), Michael Caine (Alfred Pennyworth), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake) and Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox). It is scheduled to hit theaters July 20, 2012.
