They look good. Underarmor. Black jerseys gold numbers. Black pants I believe. Rapid city is blue and lime green. Did not get a good look at rogues emblem on helmet. I am on the Rapid city team

An anonymous source took a picture of the actual jersey


They’re going to dig a big hole in Cherry Way in front of Primanti’s and run the batmobile into the ground, or out of the ground.

Currently, this is all supposed to happen between 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 and 6 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 13. However, there’s word on the batphone that could be delayed as much as a week.

Next weekend, they’re going to shoot on Smithfield Street from the Boulevard of the Allies all the way to 6th Avenue. That will be going on from Friday night to Monday morning.

Here’s the big one: Wednesday and Thursday Aug. 17 and 18, Batman and Bane are going to be chasing each other all over the place.

About 1 p.m., the tarp was removed from the Batpod or signature motorcycle and wheeled into Mellon Institute, presumably for a stunt in which Catwoman drives it out of the building and down the steps. A Pittsburgh ambulance was admitted behind the barricade to be closer to the set at that point.

An hour later, a gun-metal gray Lamborghini with a license plate that was a shortened form of BANKRUPT screeched up to the intersection of Fifth and Bellefield avenues. Christian Bale -- as either Bruce Wayne or Batman -- was not at the wheel. A stunt driver then rounded the bend and went down Fifth Avenue as all heads turned in his direction.

subaruwrxfan - video from yesterday, but uploaded this morning (Spoilers!)

This is a better image of Anne Hathaway from her set visit yesterday

This is the most interesting part of my article. "opening kickoff the field will start to blow up behind the returner and the field will cave in w/ players falling over the edge." Wow! The extras this weekend at Heinz field are in for quite a show. I heard they will pass out earplugs for the extras, and heck it sounds like they'll need them. I also heard that Heinz field as of right now has major holes dug into the field and pyrotechnics are being placed strategically throughout the stadium. Very exciting!

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.

Ew Black and Gold... Reminds me of the Pittsburgh Steelers.... YUCK!

I wonder why they are fist fighting? Why don't they just use their guns and shoot each other? That doesn't make any sense to me, but I guess we'll have to wait for the final product before anything starts to make any sense.
tomtom12 - 8/4/2011, 3:14 PM
@macksimus - I wonder the same thing, interesting to see how that scene will play out in the final product. Can't really tell from random set pictures.

A Murcielago Lamborghini? That's so 2002! Is Bruce Wayne driving on a budget? I mean he should be driving a Lamborghini AVENTADOR, dengit! What's with all the same ol' hand-me-down been-there-done-that bat toys? The real Bruce Wayne would say: "Bling ...bling! Funk budgeting, funk the economy!"

Is Rapid City in the DC Universe?

Hey Sidhant, I'm headin out sat too, this keeps getting better with every update. I'm going to try to update everyone thru-out the day. The info pack said they're movin us around in groups for diff shots so it sounds like they def Didn't get 65,000 people to fill it. They may even have us riot n run out of the game and if 65,000 people were there someone would def get trampled. And I can't imagine how much it costs to ruin that field with a hole too.

What the eff is that explosion?! And then all the mercenaries start yelling? WTF is happening?! I guess we'll find out July 20, 2012.

Besides her face, Anne Hathaway hasn't got one quality feature that matches Selina Kyle/Catwoman. Selina is shapely and full bodied. She climbs 90 degree vertical walls for heavens sake! I really wish Anne would have hit the gym to do this role. Wishful thinking I guess :(

Do people hoenstly think that the guns will not be fired? Maybe this isn't the part where the guns are fired. Maybe it's an escalation to gun fire. There's no telling whats going on here. Bane could be trying to run for mayor for all we know. Maybe the royal rumble was a violent alternative to shooting before things get out of hand.

Bane is not ripped.

Hathaway is not in shape, at all.

Bale may have worked out, but nowhere near the big bulk-up rumors from a while back.

Not diggging the multiple Tumblers.

The football scene sounds interesting.

I wish Batman was driving the Lambo.

The football scene sounds [frick]ing sick!

Anne Hathaway is the ugliest bitch ever to be in a Batman Movie. What a disappointment.
Aaesir - 8/5/2011, 7:35 AM
@Holme: hahahaha... that's not even cool, man lol.
@Rex: I agree. There's definitely something wrong with this production.
PapaEmeritus - 8/5/2011, 3:35 PM
@holme: and you must be a faggot!
@Aesir @Rex, you make me laugh! Based in what you think that? Just by seeing some set crappy spy pics? Get out...
