Christopher Nolan is shooting "The Dark Knight" in Pittsburgh right now and lots of set photos and videos are appearing online. Today, we have a few more photos and videos, on top of several rumors.
First: We have new shots of Christian Bale and Tom Hardy battling as Batman and Bane. At one point, Hardy takes his shirt off to reveal the scars on the back of his neck and lots of back acne that likely came from some serious juicing.
Second: When Marion Cotillard (Inception) was announced, it was said that she will play the role of Miranda Tate, a Wayne Enterprises board member. Since Liam Neeson and Josh Pence will be playing Ra's Al Ghul, many immediately assumed that Cotillard's character will end up being Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Ra's.
Now, from the set of the film, we get a photo of Cotillard walking around in an Asian outfit with armed guards protecting her. While this doesn't confirm anything, it's starting to look more likely that Cotillard is in fact Talia Al Ghul.
Third: While we all wait to see Anne Hathaway in her Catwoman outfit, we have to settle for a set video of her in regular street clothes.
And Finally: Batman-News claims that we'll once again see the many Batman imposters that appeared in "The Dark Knight." One of the site's sources wrote in, stating: "We create and provide bulk sales for movie projects ranging from lighting props to police badges. Today at work we had a meeting that all projects where to be put on hold for the remainder of the work week. Some movie company ordered nearly 200 Batman suits all requested to look 'homemade' and to fit a wide range of sizes. The job is deadlined August 10th and must be shipped August 11th."

Maybe Hardy is a method actor maybe has been bang on the roids wouldn't suprise me , looks pretty real to me. It's not like other famous action stars aka Hugh Jackman, Stallone, 50 Cent, Barbera Streisand.
Why didn't they get a real bodybuilder or at least just a bigger actor to play Bane? He's f#$%ing HUGE in the comics. Hardy's acne is bigger than his muscles. Looking at this now makes me think Gerrard Butler would have made a much better Bane than this fruitcake. I'm having my doubt again about this storyline choice. These characters don't belong in Nolan's universe.
All the people that is complaining about Bane size and strengh, they had to understand something.... Bane was no only big and monstrous, he was also very clever like Bruce Wayne. It was one of the reason he breakdown the man in pieces. In this film, what I´m seen it has to with both not only about strengh but about mind games, is the only reason Bane is like leading commandos around Gotham city and using the Tumbler for his own evil purposes....
"At one point, Hardy takes his shirt off to reveal the scars on the back of his neck and lots of back acne that likely came from some serious juicing."
....or maybe it came from him sweating a lot, considering it's not actually snowing in Pittsburgh. I mean, look at how much Hardy is wearing; his back acne is obviously due to sweat. That, and he's not nearly big enough to have 'juiced'.
BTW the guys have you seen the new picture of Henry Cavill as Superman Warners as just been realeased, i dont really know what to make of it, one half of me think it looks awesome, other side thinks well....meh kid of resembles the new spidey outfit like the material of it
i don't understand how a non-movie site (http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2011/08/first-look-henry-cavill-as-superman-in-zack-snyder-man-of-steel)can post an image of a highly anticipated movie before an (actual) movie site?
@Stapes: The fact you think Burtons Camp-Fest is better than Begins, is evidence you don't know good movies.
Anyway, You think If you were going to play as Bane, you'd work a little more on your physique. I mean Hugh Jackman in Wolverine? That was all him when he came out of that Tub. The man had nearly no fat of his body.
Instead, Tom Hardy's sporting love handles. BANE DOES NO HAVE LOVE HANDLES.
Marion Cotillard is a terrible actress that needs to learn how to speak English properly!

I'll help Marion with her english. Translation- Will she's sucking my underwear up my ass crack I'll be giving her voice lessons.
this is looking great. and to everyone whose complaining about bane's size relax. watch the teaser again. he is literally towering over batman at the end of it. so bewteen post production editing, or just film progression, he will grow much bigger and resemble a more comics based bane before its over.
and i like the superman pic. from what ive seen henry cavill is great, not to mention the rest of the cast. as long as nolan keeps snyder on story track and not overly doing special effects (ie suckerpunch) then this will be great!
