The Dark Knight Rises has received a lot of attention since it began filming in Pittsburgh less than two weeks ago. We’ve seen dozens of photos and videos of Tom Hardy as Bane on set. We just recently got our first look at Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. Cameras have caught the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod driving on the streets Pittsburgh. Pictures of the fake snow on set have reminded much of America (suffering from heatwaves) of cooler weather. But now attention is turning towards the fake football game being filmed at Heinz field this weekend. The Gotham Rogues will be facing off against the Rapid City Monuments in what is said to be one of the key moments of filming in Pittsburgh.
With the big day imminent, stuff is starting to leak online. A photo of the Rogues football uniform has been revealed via Twitter. The team colors should be familiar to Pittsburgh Steelers fans and football fans alike. Black and yellow, black and yellow! Yeah yeah, that joke is old, I know. These team colors not only wink at the Steelers colors, which are prominent inside of Heinz Field as well, but they’re a nice nod to the iconic black and yellow Bat-symbol from the comics and Tim Burton Batman films. Local news station WPXI sent a helicopter over Heinz Field this week and took 8 minutes of footage of what is being done inside the stadium to prep for filming. Team logos are being painted on the field, and that’s not all. It looks like the art departments have been doing a lot other manipulation to the field as well. Some might think it a bit spoilery, so check out the video after the jump.
Meanwhile, production moves forward on the film in other various parts of the city. The first official photo of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle hit the net earlier, but now so have the unofficial photos. Just Jared and EyePrime have grabbed a handful of photos of the Selina Kyle character riding the Bat-Pod around the set in Pittsburgh. Some photos of Marion Cotillard have made their way online as well. She is sporting quite an interesting outfit I would say — it’s been the cause of much speculation in fact. All of the photos should be viewed with caution if you’re trying to stay in the dark as much as possible on The Dark Knight Rises. Check out our gallery below to check out the set pictures, as well as the new logo for the film revealed via the Official Site.
