“The Dark Knight Rises” on location in Pittsburgh

 

 

The Dark Knight Rises was on location in Pittsburgh over the weekend, filming what seems to be a kick ass melee. The Steel City is doubling as Gotham in some scenes, in this case the steps of the Mellon Institute.

From the shots, we see Batman (Christian Bale) dueling with on Bane (Tom Hardy), and even glimpse a bit of Joseph Gordon-Levitt getting in the mess.

SPOILER:   This is likely the battle where Bane breaks Batman’s back.

Can’t help but notice that Bane does not look massively huge. Will Christopher Nolan add in the juice through CGI?

The videos below are pretty kick ass too.

Can’t wait for next July. Until then we get this…
