THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Set Photos Feature Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in New York [UPDATED]

     October 28, 2011

Production on The Dark Knight Rises has now moved onto New York City for two weeks of location filming, which means you can expect quite a few set photos to surface. Such is the case today, as we’ve got some images featuring Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on set, as well as Bale hanging out in Trump Tower pretending it’s Wayne Enterprises (silly Bale, always getting his buildings mixed up), and a host of Wayne’s flashy car. The images don’t spoil anything from the film, so feel free to peruse if you’re so inclined.

Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th, 2012. [Update: More set photos have surfaced giving us a look at both Gordon-Levitt and Bale in full costume. They're included after the jump.]

Here are the images (via Celebuzz and CBM):

  • Stacey Greene

    I am disappointed that Christian Bale’s hair isn’t shorter than it was in the last film. It’s even longer.

    • bob

      Why, do you want him to join the U.S Army Stacey?

    • I cry u smile

      Bale looks hot with long hair :D

    • keir

      He’s got his American Psycho hair going on.

      • Clayton


    • joe kerr

      why is the length of his hair a concern?

    • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and the 14th Assassin)

      Bruce Wayne’s a busy guy, being Batman and all.

      It’s just been a long time between haircuts, that’s all. :)

  • Conrad The Great!

    Who gives a crap about Christian Bale/Bruce Wayne’s fucking hair??!!

    Am I the only one who sees these pics and is like “Yes! The Dark Knight Rises is coming together!!”

    • NoSmilesonInternet

      Yes you are the only one that sees positivity on the internet. Don’t you know it’s a place of nit-pickey, unhappy, overweight ‘intellectuals’ (term uses loosely) with nothing better to do than to utilize their right to free speech to bitch endlessly but never do anything with their lives.

      Oh yeah I’m super excited for The Dark Knight Rises by the way!

  • Elitist Prick

    I just watched Hesher, so Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Tuff-Guy Cop face is making me giggle.

    He’s a pretty good actor, you guys.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is ROBIN!!!!!

    • K2_lewis

      i know a! just what i was thinking. Surely 2xNolan cant write that in without it turning camp…

      • Josh Kaye

        “Christopher Nolan has made it clear that the new “Batman” film franchise will not bring Robin into the mythology as long as he is directing, apparently having stated that Robin is in a crib somewhere still and the timeline isn’t appropriate for him to enter the picture.”

      • englishgent

        Directors have been known to lie to protect their movie you know….If ever nolan was gonna have a Robin in his films then this is it a cop called Robin a gritty side kick with a violent streak! Robin doesn’t have to be camp.

      • fizzyornotfizzy

        Nolan has said that robin would never appear in HIS films. WB has made it clear that they are going to make more films, so who is to say that this film will not set up Levitt as robin (or nightwing) for future movies. Even better, Levitt could be set up as Batman’s successor ala Batman Beyond. Bane is in the move, and he is famous in the comics for ending batman’s career, so this conclusion dosent seem that far off.

      • Joe

        But wouldn’t Levitt be too OLD to playing Robin in this movie? He doesn’t look that much younger than Bruce/Bale.

  • vario

    Collider, please stop using spoiler images in the thumbnails at the top of your pages. I don’t want to know anything about this movie until I watch it for the first time.

    • News Hit

      What exactly is a spoiler? A spoiler is something that reveals a plot point, not the most generic of details, in this case Bruce knowing this cop character.

      • Strong Enough

        Hes an idiot dont pay attention to him

  • Strong Enough

    this is going to blow “silly conry nine inch nails music avengers” out teh water

    someone tell Joss Whedon he’s out of his league with this one ha!

    • Mankitten

      I know! Thank god someone else finds the Avenger’s preview score extremely annoying and cheap. Using rock music in a preview automatically removes credibility. I’ll spend my money on Batman, excited!!

    The 7th image: a picture within a picture.

    Photography got Nolanized?

  • Grayden

    Nolan said Robin wouldn’t be in the movies.

    Never said anything about Nightwing, though.

    Yes, I know Dick Grayson was Robin before he became Nightwing, but it isn’t as if Nolan hasn’t taken small liberties with the mythos so far. Hell, Rachel Dawes wasn’t even a canonical characther, so saying Robin won’t be in the film technically doesn’t mean Nightwing won’t

  • wacko3205

    Yeah…I love JGL & think it’d be sweet as shiblit if he became Batman’s Back Up plan & way out. I’m definently curious as to what will happen once Nolan’s gig is up.

  • spongefist

    Do you think the sandwich that Levitt is holding will play a big part in the movie? Looks interesting.

    • Jeremiah

      I wonder if Marion Cotillard is playing the sandwich. She could definitely pull it off. During Inception, I frequently watched her on the screen and thought, “I bet a Sandwich could do better.”

      • Hiro the Eighth Samurai (and the 14th Assassin)

        I’d play the role of a sandwich if Cotillard would hold me, and eat me. ;)

      • Joe

        I’d be the salami. Hope she likes salty.

  • Migz13

    Wayne’s long hair here may suggest that he’s out being Batman for quite some time like he did a break after all that ruckus TDK.
    Anyway… can’t wait for this shiz to come out next year!

  • deathon2legs

    I wonder if Nolan is up to something. In the comic book Bane breaks Bruce Wayne’s back and someone (I can’t remember who) stands in as Batman. Does JGL become the new Batman when Christian Bale walks away from the Batman movies? Or…better yet, does JGL become Nightwing? This would jumpstart a new superhero trilogy for D.C. comics (which desperately needs credible superheroes). JGL is a favorite of Nolan’s and a rising star. It wouldn’t make sense to have him in the movie to play a minor role, especially when Batman already has his inside man, Gordon (Gary Oldman). Anyone…anyone?

  • Giovanni

    If you look closely on the 2nd to last image at JGL and either zoom or enhance it you can clearly see D. Grayson on his badge !

    sry for wasting ur time XD

  • K2_lewis

    Im going out on a limb here in saying that we’ll see joker in this next film as well…… dun dun DAAAA – Obviously it wont be a large part in honor of HEATH LEDGERS AMAZING performance in TDK. But im betting well see the joker in the shadows somewhere (maybe even with heaths voice???).

  • Bryce Forestieri

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is soo fucking hot!!!

  • lester reynolds

    My best friend’s mom makes $77 an hour on the computer.She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7487 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here NuttyRichdotcom

  • jar head

    this movie is going to suck f nolan

  • Teddy

    Why didnt I think of this sooner? Well ok i didnt know how JGL fit into this as there were a lack of photos but now I think I have a good theory.
    In the 1st trailer we saw Gordon in a hospital bed. Well Batman needs someone on the inside to help him while Gordon recovers. Maybe JGL is simply a cop who wants to work with Batman to save Gotham by taking Gordon’s place in the relationship.

    But it would be cool if Nightwing were in the film or at least a set up to a spin off for Nightwing.

  • Corey

    Levitt looks damn good in that cop outfit. And Bale looks really slender and skinny, not as muscular as he’s been for the other movies.

  • sense 11

    Batman and Nightwing
