I know that most likely Jonathan Crane won't show up in TDKR, but with this prison break from Blackgate it would be awesome to see a cameo of him making a run for it :)

I wish movies would be filmed in my town...but barley anybody knows about's only the largest city above Sacramento in Cali. lol

And we have a world known landmark.

I'd love to see some little cameos during the escape, i mean he had Zsasz in there, minus the carvings.

In Begins i mean, not this one...yet.

Spectacular and massive might not be quite the right terms to use, but to each their own.

What's up with a prison building with no fence or gates around it in the middle of the a city? Bare minimum security facility?
Joker08 - 7/30/2011, 6:37 PM
They start handing the inmates guns at the end of that video... Interesting :)

Hey, does anyone know if Liam Neeson has been confirmed for this? I know there were reports that stated he was spotted on set.
Joker08 - 7/30/2011, 6:40 PM
@Ranger14: A prison in the middle of the city, no fence and that - it's not a far-fetched concept by any means. There's a on just like it in Chicago, right by my apartment.
NeoBaggins - 7/30/2011, 6:58 PM
@Joker08 And that building as well as the surrounding area, looks almost identical to the Oakland county Jail. There's a Mexican restaurant, tattoo parlor, you name it. It's down town. Besides, the final product probably won't even resemble the building in the video. It will be unrecognizable.
Niuhll - 7/30/2011, 7:09 PM
@Neobaggins exactly, you probs won't even see much past that ground level.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/30/2011, 7:12 PM
It's about time I see an explosion.
Tainted87 - 7/30/2011, 7:18 PM
Redding is quite nice this time of the year, but try finding a single building downtown that is over ten floors tall.
Joker08 - 7/30/2011, 7:25 PM
@NeoBeggins: Exactly. I mean, I understand where the confusion may come from - for the longest time I thought every prison looked like Alcatrez. But the "Metropolitan Correctional Center," as it's called, in Chicago is right in the heart of the city. And yeah, I doubt we'll even get more than a few shots of the prison facade anyway in the final film.

the first video is meh....
my toaster makes more smoke than that....
superbatspiderman - 7/30/2011, 7:45 PM
They should definitely have a Joker cameo. They don't even need to show him they could just let us hear him say "do you wann know where I got these scars" to someone in Arkham. This movie is gonna be epic and Bane is gonna be the coolest villain of all time.
WingPow - 7/30/2011, 8:25 PM
is anyone else thinking the plot will resemble Knightfall?
dahamma - 7/30/2011, 8:48 PM
@Grif lolol wow man I agree with you
darkbeefstakes - 7/30/2011, 8:50 PM
This is what the bane mask should look like.
Macksimus - 7/30/2011, 8:59 PM
looks like Bane was passing out pictures of certain prisoners...maybe Dent, Joker, Scarecrow, etc...

Tainted87 - 7/30/2011, 9:17 PM
Somewhat, but I think we're going to get more of a No Man's Land.
And as I highly doubt Batman is going to get a fractured spinal column, the conclusion of this trilogy will more or less have Batman rise to hero status, or at least be acknowledged by Gotham as a "necessary evil".
Macksimus - 7/30/2011, 9:21 PM

You never know. Hopefully he breaks out somebody familiar and not just a bunch of random thugs.
batmanrises - 7/30/2011, 9:21 PM
Bat fever! Catch it! or eat a dick! Either one...I don't care...
CrossOver - 7/30/2011, 9:28 PM
@darkbeefstakes - Cant see it. upload with tinypic or something.

Thats dope. I found it funny when all the prisoners raised their hands like 5th graders. hahaha
Action - 7/30/2011, 9:47 PM
YES! I'm so glad Nolan is getting deeper into the DC world by showing blackgate prison.
AsianVersionOfET - 7/30/2011, 9:55 PM
Yeah that plaque is sweet! I want I want!

All those extras look SO enthused. It's like they're there for jury duty.
KilledHal9000 - 7/30/2011, 10:15 PM
we know this movie must take place in 2010 or 2011, I wonder when Batman Begins and the Dark Knight took place then. I know they took place 6 months apart. Scarecrow better make an appearance in this film, or I will be upset.
Shunt - 7/30/2011, 10:31 PM
@Niuhil.... Zsasz had carvings on his skin in Batman Begins.. if you look closely you can see the tally marks on his neck, and i think his forearm as well...

alucard365 - 7/30/2011, 10:36 PM
This movie is going to be the shit, i can't wait.
jazzman - 7/31/2011, 3:37 AM
@Intruder - "I feel like the name of that prison is extremely racist."

what about the character Black Mask thats sort of racist think about it Black Mask = Blackface LMAO
jazzman - 7/31/2011, 4:37 AM

but ra's al ghul is mention in The Dark Knight Rises
goldenavenger77 - 7/31/2011, 4:39 AM
@ KilledHal9000

From Batman Begins to The Dark Knight it's roughly a year or more cause The Joker says "Let's wind the clocks back a year. These cops and lawyers wouldn't dare cross any of you." when The mob bosses are assembled together, videoconferencing with Lau, referring to the appearance of Batman.

What I found on the internet.

In the teaser trailer for "The Dark Knight Rises" It seems as if it takes place a few years or so after The Dark Knight, Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) is on a hospital bed in bad shape. He is breathing through an oxygen tank "You were gone. Now there is evil rising. The Batman must come back."
Niuhll - 7/31/2011, 7:52 AM
@shunt oh yeah! Never spotted them before, cheers man, guess I was expecting them on his head etc
marvel72 - 7/31/2011, 7:55 AM
how exciting an explosion,i don't think i've seen one of them before.
farrah045 - 7/31/2011, 8:24 AM
intruder- im black and it don't sound racist to me. why's it racist cause word black in it?
comicbookjerk - 7/31/2011, 9:13 AM
Thank you so much for wasting time out of my life to see a puff of smoke The Dark Knight Rises already looks like a boring piece of crap
AC1 - 7/31/2011, 10:23 AM
@Niuhull Zsasz actually did have carvings on him in Begins, there just werent many since it's probably toward the beginning of his murderous life. They show up best in the escape from Arkham scene if you watch in HD, he has a tally of five on the back of his neck.

The 'dedicated to Harvey Dent' thing's a nice touch, although it'd probably just an easter egg that we wont notice in the film.

@Intruder tell me you're joking? It's from the comics...
