Matthew Modine Looking Sleazy on the Set of The Dark Knight Rises

Matthew Modine Looking Sleazy on the Set of <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>

Some great close-up pictures of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Matthew Modine. Modine is rumored to be, Nixon, the third villain in Christopher Nolan's new Batman movie.

Matthew Modine and JGL were filming scenes at Wall St. yesterday, which was transformed into the Gotham Stock Exchange. In the scene, a group of floor traders were seen exiting the the exchange with their hands high in the air. As they walked down the steps Bane's mercenaries raced down the steps in motorcycles, causing the crowd of traders to divide and dash for safety. According to reports Modine was not on the back of the motorcycles like some had thought, but was in fact shooting at the mercenaries with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Modine will be portraying a 'politician and a key villain' called Nixon in the upcoming conclusion to Christopher Nolan's superhero trilogy.

And it's possible that Modine's politician is involved some kind of sleaze. The choice of name, echoing so directly the Watergate disgrace of American president Richard Nixon, probably isn't a coincidence, either, though he was never linked to a sex scandal.

30-year-old Levitt plays John Blake, a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty under the command of Commissioner Gordon, played by Gary Oldman -

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

who told you that Matthew Modine is playing a Villain, you need to stop speculating.

alucard365: If you read the article, you would see that it was the daily mail who stated he was the villain, not nailbitter. Plus it has been a rumor that has come from multiple sources, so it is reporting, not speculation.

LMAO!!! He does look a lil creepy in the first pic.

I don't think the character's real name is Nixon, it's most likely just a codename.

Selina's pinks?? I'm guessing he got those from her place of.. Business.. Meaning Modine probably has a strong Hathaway character tie in.

Since when do politicians hang out with cops and use guns? Isn't it more likely that he's a detective?

ThreeBigTacos - 10/31/2011, 1:33 PM

MrBlueSky - 10/31/2011, 1:35 PM
@brazillianbatman He played Private Joker in Full Metal Jacket.

How do we know Modine's not the acting Commissioner while Gordon is in the hospitlal? It would fit based on the pics we've seen.

Sanderman - 10/31/2011, 1:37 PM
the most shocking thing in these pics to me is seeing chris nolan actually wearing a different style of clothing lol
Kloster - 10/31/2011, 1:49 PM
marvel72 again? you know what? those knickers belonged to "thor" and Nixon is laughing his ass about it...
ThreeBigTacos - 10/31/2011, 1:50 PM
Kloster: I don't think that justified as a 'come back'

@nail...nice 16 candles ref.

I guess being a panty sniffer is frowned upon most of the time but that hardly makes the guy a villain.

Wow, Matthew Modine, huh? Where the heck's he been???

Awesome to see him in TDKR
aussienwo8 - 10/31/2011, 4:50 PM

Looks like he's a cop. Glad to see that Modine's back in the big leagues again though. Haven't seen him in anything since Transporter 2.

Politician? Why didn't they use Cobblepot for that character role? I'm starting to get frustrated with this movie.
Vital - 10/31/2011, 7:17 PM
@sanderman, he's just wearing a raincoat... lol
