Pretty exciting stuff, huh? Here is a small video of an apparent explosion in a prison riot on the set, too:

Here is another recent image, depicting a battle between Batman and Bane. As you can see, there are police officers and prisoners fighting amidst them, so it may be a scene which is part of a huge prison break caused by Bane:

Exciting stuff indeed. Keep an eye out on the latest Batman news. The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit cinema screens on 20th July, 2o12.

New Image Of Bane On-Set from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

A new image of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ villain, Bane has hit the net! The big man, who isn’t too keen on Batman, is being played by Tom Hardy (Inception, Bronson), and new images of him on-set and in his costume in Pittsburgh have been released. Check out the one I thought to be the best glimpse, below:

So, what do you reckon? Intimidating or what? You wouldn’t wanna cross this guy in a dark alley. Tom Hardy, who became especially popular after his portrayal of the character Eames in Christopher Nolan’s 2010 hit Inception, has reportedly gained 30lbs in weight in order to play the venom-filled beast who is apparently set to deal big damage to the Dark Knight in the upcoming third and final Batman installment from Christopher Nolan (who just turned 41 yesterday, if you didn’t know). Shooting is currently taking place in Pittsburgh, with numerous images and videos being caught, including this video of a few Tumblers getting ready for action:

Looks awesome, don’t you think? There appears to be three Tumblers, each with a slight difference to them. Has Bane managed to get his hands on them? Or is Batman just calling on ol’ pal Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) to get behind the wheel again? Or is there a totally different explanation?

Numerous others have been seen on set, too, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Blake and Marion Cotillard as Wayne Enterprise Board Member and possible love interest to Bruce Wayne, Miranda Tate. Much more will be heading our way soon, so keep an eye out for constant updates.

The Dark Knight Rises Gets Big Cameo

Christopher Nolan

WARNING: The following information contains details on a spoiler which will appear in the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie, The Dark Knight Rises, detailing a massive cameo which will be appearing in the movie. It is quite a big cameo, so if you do not wish to know anymore on the topic, I advise you to turn away, now.

The latest news in, which, unfortunately for me and every other Batman fan, was unable to stay under wraps, is that a huge cameo will be appearing in the currently filming, The Dark Knight Rises, and those of you who have seen Batman Begins, will particularly enjoy this.

Liam Neeson, has been spotted filming a short scene on The Dark Knight Rises set, who played Ra’s Al Ghul in the first Nolan installment in the Batman trilogy, Batman Begins. However, reports say only a short scene was filmed, before he left to attend the New York Broadway Premiere of Spiderman on Tuesday evening.

Like I, and many others, have speculated in the past, I always had a feeling that they would involve the character of Ra’s once again, especially with him somewhat being known as an immortal or supernatural character in the comics. Josh Pence, will be playing a young Ra’s Al Ghul in flashbacks in the upcoming movie. Talia Al Ghul, the estranged daughter of Ra’s in the comics, will also be appearing in the upcoming movie, so perhaps her appearance may tie in with the cameo of Ra’s. And, as Ra’s is considered as having supernatural methods, as mentioned in Begins, maybe he may come back to share this idea of being able to bring people back to life, which, in effect, may have adverse affects on Wayne/Batman, whose parents were killed.

Ra’s, who appeared to have died in Batman Begins, although somewhat ambiguously, will definitely be a brilliant role in the upcoming movie; it’s just a shame that Warner Bros. failed to keep it hidden, ruining this great surprise for all of us poor victims who just can’t turn down a juicy Batman spoiler..

The Dark Knight Rises: Batman and Bane Fight Scene Leaked?

If you do not wish to know anything about The Dark Knight Rises story then do not read any further. Possible SPOILER ahead:

The latest news has it that details of a fight scene between Batman (Christian Bale) and Bane (Tom Hardy) has been leaked online. The information continues, claiming that in their first battle, Bane will break Batman’s back, leaving him paralysed. This information has been released from Website Comic Book Movies, who claim this given information is ‘from a completely reliable source’.

Well, although there has been a lot of speculation around this topic online, I would rather not believe anything until I hear it from Nolan’s mouth, or confirmed from a named, officially credible source. However, seeing as there is a lot of focus on the encounters between Batman and Bane, there may be a lot of truth to it. Tom Hardy, will be playing Bane, who, after escaping from a prison, has his structure altered to an abnormal state with drugs.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit cinema screens on 20th July, 2o12. Stay tuned for the latest Batman news, and general movie news.

The Dark Knight Rises – Rumour, and Possible Plot Detail ( POSSIBLE SPOILER )

The latest news whirling around the internet on the upcoming Christopher Nolan flick, The Dark Knight Rises, concerns the character Bane (Tom Hardy). For some, this may be considered a plot spoiler, so here’s a warning – WARNING, POSSIBLE SPOILER AHEAD:

The latest rumour and possible plot detail relates to the DC Batman comics, specifically the story, Knightfall, claiming that in the upcoming movie, Bane may possibly break Batman’s back, leaving him paralysed. Readers of the Batman comics will know that in the  Knightfall story, Bane does indeed break Batman’s back, leaving him unable to walk.

To many Batman fans, this news may have already been considered, being speculated as soon as Bane was confirmed in the upcoming movie, and so as it may appear as a spoiler to some, it may not to others. However, do you think Christopher Nolan would follow the comics to such a degree? Although reports claim this rumour is from a trustworthy source, nothing has been officially confirmed yet. So, what do you think?

The Dark Knight Rises Update: Matthew Modine To Play Bad Guy?

Recent news has it that Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) will be playing a character named Nixon, with further news suggesting that this may be an evil character; possibly a corrupt politician. The highly anticipated upcoming Batman sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, being directed by Christopher Nolan, has recently began filming, and although the news on Modine is the latest, much information is still under wraps, as is with most information on this movie.

Apparently, reports also suggest that the character Nixon will be a ‘key villain’ in the movie, and his scenes will be filmed in London. Hopefully, this may be true, considering at the moment there are only two main known villains in the upcoming sequel; Bane, and Catwoman, although of course, there is always the dilemma of whether the character of Catwoman is considered a villain or not. Either way, The Dark Knight Rises has begun filming, and I’m sure we will not be disappointed with the outcome of this masterpiece-to-be.

The Dark Knight Rises Update: Bane Image Leaked

The upcoming sure-to-be-smash-hit of 2011, The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, is currently in the process of filming. But for those of us such as myself, who cannot wait for this movie, a little present is in store, to keep the anticipation and excitement flowing.

An image of the character, Bane (Tom Hardy, Inception) has been leaked online. Bane also featured in one of the previous pre-Nolan Batman flicks, Batman & Robin, which we all know was an utter failure. Many believe that The Dark Knight Rises will fail to live up to expectations in comparison to its outstanding predecessor, The Dark Knight, but I simply beg to differ; Nolan, is an amazing director and producer, and I know he has big things in store for us – and this little image is merely a miniscule crumb of the delicious pie that is to come…

The Dark Knight Rises hits cinemas on 20th July, 2012.
