There is no stopping the onslaught of filming happening on The Dark Knight Rises, which is still shooting in Pittsburgh. Fortunately and unfortunately for us that means an onslaught of photos and videos from the filming locations have been sprouting all over the internet. For those fans clawing at every scrap of information, there certainly has been enough leaks online to keep to stay happy, at least by Christopher Nolan standards. For those who are trying to turning a blind-eye to wealth of media being uploaded to Twitter and YouTube, well… it has been difficult.
The most recent (and exciting) news to pop up about filming has been the apparent surfacing of Batman’s new means of transport for The Dark Knight Rises: the Batwing. Over the past day or two, photos and video of a strange, Tumbler-esque type vehicle on a hydraulic rig have been taken by fans on the streets in Pittsburgh. On our Podcast we voiced concerns over the possibility of a Batwing because of the practical limitations of developing such a vehicle, but it seems that the visual effects, stunts, and various art departments have figured out a way to get it done. Twitter and YouTube users @markaduffy and subaruwrxfan posted a number videos of the Batwing being filmed by IMAX cameras around Pittsburgh. It appears to have the low-speed capabilities of a helicopter, but with the bite and style of a fighter jet. Check out videos below.
