With Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises now filming on the streets of Pittsburgh, tons of images and video has been leaking from the set. While we’d already gotten a brief look at Tom Hardy as Bane and the first teaser poster and trailer, if you hit the jump, you can see Bane in full costume, along with a photo of the new Tumbler (Batmobile).
While we’re going to stay away from posting every image that leaks from the set and we won’t post anything that’s deemed a “major” spoiler, I think most of you want to see what Bane looks like. And for those that are trying to stay spoiler free…that’s why I didn’t post the images before the jump. I really can’t wait to see this movie next summer.
UPDATED: We’ve also got some video from the set. It’s below the pics.
I think it’s safe to assume at some point Bane and Batman fight on the Batmobile…that or he’s stolen the car.
The fact is, I wish more of The Dark Knight Rises was being filmed on soundstages, because I’d love to walk into the theater next summer having seen as little as possible. But with interest in this film at a fever pitch, you can expect a lot more images and video to leak from the set in the coming weeks. I’d imagine this is how we’re going to get our first look at Catwoman and some of the other new characters. Which is unfortunate.
The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, and Morgan Freeman. The film opens opens July 20th, 2012.
Here’s some video. I especially like how the production allowed a bride and groom to get up close to the Batmobile. The second video has Bane giving a speech. Videos via poparitaville.
