And Now Here’s Batman Fighting Bane Right Out In The Open

August 1st, 2011 // 23 Comments

**SPOILER ALERT** Batman punches him. With his fist.

Christopher Nolan is meticulously secret when it comes to the plot of his movies, particularly the Batman films, which is why it’s surprising to see how insanely out in the open production on The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh has been so far. The entire Internet’s already seen Bane in full costume, and now here’s Christian Bale‘s Batman fighting him in broad daylight. On top of that, you can see Marion Cotillard clear as day, and a goddamn married couple just walking up to the set and posing for pictures with The Batmobile. I’m almost afraid to see more photos because I’m pretty sure they’ll just be Christopher Nolan handing out copies of the script at a Pirates game. “On page 67, you learn Joseph Gordon-Levitt is really Dick Grayson. We film that scene in the strip district Tuesday at 10. Bring a camera!”

    It’s the Batusi!!!

  8. That’s not Bane. It’s a gaffer, who inadvertently wandered into Christian Bale’s sight line. They’re all required to wear head gear now, just in case.

    Stunt double? The chin looks weird for Bale.

    Anyway Batman looks really out of place in daylight and they must digitally retouch the suit to look awesome in the movie because as another poster mentioned, it looks like shit here.

    Right? So Catwoman has me on my knees, whip swirling around, two claws up my difficult brown, and who walks in but Ivy!
    So then Schwarzenegger, who’d been sitting in the corner the whole time dressed in his Mr Freeze costume says, “Hey why don’t you make like a tree and root!”

    Actually, the stunt guy in this pic is Tom Lowell, standing just behind Batman’s right shoulder.
