It has been a couple of days since a rumor mill article, but that is mostly due to the fact that there has not been very much new things popping online since most of the filming is inside.
None-the-less something has emerged online as a scene took place today that featured a certain Bat-vehicle getting blown up. Now I obviously have no official knowledge of what is taking place in the video when it comes to how it works into the story, but one can assume. Let's take a look first.

In recent weeks we have finally been shown images of Anne Hathaway riding the Bat-pod. We have even been given glimpses of her stunt double in action riding the streets of Pittsburgh, as well. (And even a few of the rumored Bat-wing/Bat-plane, or whatever they plan to call it, and it looks epic as hell, kids.) Sadly, there are many out there who are criticizing the costume Ms. Hathaway is donning already. Shame on all of you. All…

There aren't any spoilers for fans today so rest assured before you continue on. It appears that the snow has begun to accumulate in Gotham City today. We saw snow in a fight scene last week, but now it looks like it has covered the area. The second image is some henchman trying to keep warm. Photos courtesy of Clint.

Well this past weekend was quite interesting. I myself was out of town for a good chunk of the weekend, but images and rumors continue for The Dark Knight Rises to pour out of Pittsburgh.
Before we go into the breakdown of everything since Friday, I wanted to address something. We received a couple of emails and messages stating that some of the things we are posting for the film could possibly be spoiling things for those who want to be completely surprised when the film releases in theaters. We started out reporting the rumors because you the viewers of…

A few new rumors have popped up in Pittsburgh these past few days. While filming has been for the most part taking place indoors, there are some things still happening that fans can see.
One of the multiple tumblers that we have shown in the past has a retractable rocket launcher built into the vehicle. It seems that Wayne Industries really went to the lengths of producing these vehicles outside of bridge creation. Images are from Matt Maranowski.

Let me start off by saying if you are reading this, you may be spoiled by a possible element from the film. I am also going to give my two cents on some new images that were taken today and again may ruin something for some people. So be warned.
There was a specific scene filmed in Pittsburgh today that involved not only Tom Hardy, but also Marion Cotillard. So before I go into my thoughts, let's look at the evidence. We have a couple of images courtesy of Just Jared and Getty Images, as well as a…

A couple of new things were filmed today and we also have some updates from yesterday's post.
First, Matt Maranowski posted a video of the Bane scene that we saw yesterday. Although very little is heard, we can see the actual scene being acted out from the images we saw yesterday.
In addition to that video, there were reports that Anne Hathaway was on set yesterday as well as today dressed in a prison jumpsuit, but was hidden…

While we normally make a point to take the weekend off, this is not one to take off at all. There are a ton of images and videos coming out of Pittsburgh and we want to go through them all.
First up is an update to our post from yesterday. It does appear that there will be three different versions of the Tumbler in The Dark Knight Rises. All three versions of the vehicle were driving around the streets of Pittsburgh today. Pictures and videos courtesy of Matt Maranowski.
