Thanks to SuperHeroHype Forums member, "Dragon_316ca" we have the following set footage from Los Angeles, where filming is expected to commence later today. Current rumors seem to hint at the Batwing actually taking flight and being pursued by Gotham's finest. The fort that you can see in one of the videos is also believed to be Bane's compound, but we're sure to find out more over the course of the next few days. Also below are a couple of more photos featuring Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne being escorted in a GCPD squad car by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake.





















There are also a few more even closer images (including what appears to be a stunt man in an ill fitting Batman suit) but they're a little blurry as the full size versions are watermarked. Here's a few of them regardless courtesy of Isopix.











UPDATE: Here are some additional photos of Anne Hathaway filming last night.









STARRING:

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman
Michael Caine as Alfred
Gary Oldman as Commissioner Jim Gordon
Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox
Tom Hardy as Bane

revloveR - 9/8/2011, 7:12 AM
in the front seat?
marvel72 - 9/8/2011, 7:20 AM
probably didn't workout so bane actually looks bigger than him.

skinny batman vs skinny bane vs skinny catwoman.
TopCat89 - 9/8/2011, 7:21 AM
He's definitely not as big as he was for 'Begins' and 'Dark Knight'...Bale bulked up huge after filming 'The Machinist' for 'Begins', i wonder why not so much after 'The Fighter'?
coderaven - 9/8/2011, 7:29 AM
The theme of the new film, seems to start off with Batman in exhile from the events TDK.

So Bale being a skinny %^& Batman fits the story from what people have pieced togther.

Jabz317 - 9/8/2011, 7:30 AM
In an interview Bale said that since he is Batman during the night and deals with Wayne Corp during the day, he realistically wouldn't have time to weight lift and stay big as Bruce during the day etc and also said that he wouldn't be as agile if he was so big.
RunDTC - 9/8/2011, 7:32 AM
where'd all my comments go?
plasticman - 9/8/2011, 7:34 AM
@ Intruder- So I think we can say that this is the first picture on set featuring Batman and Robin. Good to see the Dynamic Duo at it again.
patriautism - 9/8/2011, 7:38 AM
Remember what Is aid before. HE is SUPPOSED to be skinny. He hasn't been Batman for a while in this movie, and has to come back to fight Bane.. Why train for something you're not doing?
What's more interesting, what is Wayne doing in the front of a cruiser with a cop? Do they know he is Batman?
superotherside - 9/8/2011, 7:39 AM
and people complain about Cap's helmet... :P

cool pics at any rate! :) I'm getting kinda excited about this film... :)
Hellsing - 9/8/2011, 7:40 AM
so not only is bruce wayne getting it on with Cotillards character and Selina Kyle but John Blake too. You old dog, you.
NOLANITE - 9/8/2011, 7:42 AM
Will yall just shut the (Frick) up about this Robin crap! He's not Robin, will never be Robin and there'll never be a freaking Robin! Nolan wouldn't do that. Yall are retarded for even thinking about it. He's Blake and that's about it. Seriously if yall gonna sit here and complain about this movie you don't belong on this site.
bailey90 - 9/8/2011, 7:43 AM
I thought I read he could't bulk up as much because he was doing himself damage keep bulking up and going really thin for different roles?
Hellsing - 9/8/2011, 7:46 AM
I swear he was quite bulky in Pittsburg shoot well he did during that press conference so who knows. Don't really care to be honest long as he kicks ass, and it doesn't look obvious that he can barely move in the suit then I'm cool. You can tell the suit is restrictive as hell when watch the fight scenes.
tomtom12 - 9/8/2011, 7:50 AM
Cool pictures.
thalidomide - 9/8/2011, 7:56 AM
lol @ intruder

Spidey91 - 9/8/2011, 8:01 AM
the stuntman in the Batman suit looks funny :P
mikesinuman - 9/8/2011, 8:04 AM
FAIL! skinny batman, skinny bruce wayne.
Canon108 - 9/8/2011, 8:09 AM
Honestly, he looks the same as in TDK...the difference seems to be with whoever is doing his wardrobe. Compare the pics to TDK trailer, he's wearing bulkier clothing in TDKR set pics.
HelaGood - 9/8/2011, 8:15 AM
anorexic batman to go with anorexic catwoman
RyanLantern77 - 9/8/2011, 8:23 AM
Anne is ugly as shit
Batman93 - 9/8/2011, 8:24 AM
Michael Keaton was buff.
Val Kilmer wasn't buff.
George Clooney wasn't buff.

It's the [frick]ing suit that makes them big! stop saying shit about the film and just [frick]ing wait to see it in cinema, it will all look good, have faith, my bat-friends.
CapFan79 - 9/8/2011, 8:26 AM
Bale looks the same. He just has a skinny neck.

Anne actually looks good there. Curious about that Batman since it ain't Bale and likely not a stuntman (missing the eye black?). Maybe more citizens taking up the mantle?
Batman93 - 9/8/2011, 8:27 AM
Michael Keaton wasn't buff*
Akercocke - 9/8/2011, 8:27 AM
In Knightfall Batman is so tired, he gets sick, Bale looking bad is obviously part of the plan, that's how Bane breaks the bat.
Bartman87 - 9/8/2011, 8:34 AM
Lame excuse, "if I had muscles I wouldn't be able to fight" tell that to MMA fighters douche. That cowl looks like crap hope that is a stunt cowl and for all the Robin haters, I hope that when Nolan finally leaves the Director's chair we get a real Batman who has a lightweight suit that a Billionaire could make that is bullet-proof and he is able to move in, how about the same type of material that Superman and Spidey are wearing. If he can get cowls made I'm sure he can come up with a reason to get the material made to make his costume a little more agile.
Unionjack - 9/8/2011, 8:36 AM
I agree that he is looking a little lean, but he is supposed to be in exile and from the teaser has given up the mantle of Batman (for part of the movie at least).

And he's just lost the love of his life, so he's bound to looked a little out of sorts!!

He was buffed up in Begins, but that went with the armored batsuit and TDK was more toned and lean to go with the more agile look. I think he will be fine and that we are in for one amazing film!!

The other thing, is that like begins this covers a longer time period and will have lots of flash backs etc... so there is no way to ascertain if he will not be more ripped later on
Superduper - 9/8/2011, 8:47 AM
I'm sure Bale is skinny for a reason, Nolan is a perfectionist. Bats has hung up the cape for a while and Gordon has to beg him to bring Batman back. Maybe he's skinny because he hasn't been Batman and Nolan is going to convey that in the film?
TMNTDude - 9/8/2011, 8:51 AM
Yeah, he supposed to be skinny i bet. He's gone into exile. Plus remember in the teaser he was working out doing push ups. Maybe to get back in shape?
tomtom12 - 9/8/2011, 8:55 AM
@Superduper - I agree. I think a lot of people in here is forgetting that some point in this movie he goes into exile not being Batman anymore.
TheAmarilloBlack - 9/8/2011, 8:58 AM
Not sure I want a classy Catwoman...she should be turning tricks on the corner of Suicide Slum's Crime Alley.

As for JGL, he'd be a great Robin, doubt Nolan will do that, tho. Nighwing, on the other hand....hmm...lol
thewolfx - 9/8/2011, 9:00 AM
jeeezus that batsuit looks so [frick]in dumb .....
Fastestmanalive - 9/8/2011, 9:01 AM
Anne Hathaway looks amazing. Shes perfect for Selina kyle, both tough and sexy at the same time.
JackBauer - 9/8/2011, 9:11 AM
JGL = Dick Grayson. He won't show up as Robin and probably won't show up as Nightwing but I'm betting he is Dick Grayson.

Dick Grayson was a cop in Bludhaven. They have him listed as John Blake so it will be a surprise for the fanboys.
GiftedYoungster - 9/8/2011, 9:16 AM
The spoilers run thick with this one. But out of context it means nothing. Damn.
Fastestmanalive - 9/8/2011, 9:21 AM
@Intruder
Uh huh, thats what I said, tough and sexy. If u dont see it, well thats why theyre called opinions.
MovieTheaterLad - 9/8/2011, 9:25 AM
I absolutely ADORE Anne Hathaway's coat, here. It's so sophisticated, and the collar gives off a very Jane Eyre sort of vibe. Not so sure how I feel about the buttons. They should've been gold or at least silver. Also, really digging her clutch with the spiral pattern on it. It fits with her outfit but still functions as a statement piece. Not so sure how I feel about her hair. It's a clean bun, which is nice. And it does match the dress. But it kinda pulls her cheekbones back a bit. I would've gone for 45 degree ponytail. The earrings are a nice touch, too. I'd love to get a shot of her ring there.
MovieTheaterLad - 9/8/2011, 9:26 AM
@Intruder

PFFFFFTHAHAHAHAHA! Depp and Jolie? What are you? Twelve? Oooohhhh man. Or do you just not want this movie to have any credibility whatsoever?
PeterDarker121 - 9/8/2011, 9:31 AM
@NOLANITE I think maybe you should look up the word sarcasm lol
