'The Dark Knight Rises' First Look: On the Set (Photos)
Almost a full year before Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie is set for release, fans can sneak a peek at three of the key players in The Dark Knight Rises.
Christian Bale dons his bat-suit once again to engage in a little hand-to-hand combat with baddie Bane, played by Tom Hardy. Marion Cotillard can also be seen as she scales the top of the Batmobile and holds court with a bevy of crewmembers.
Also pictured is Batman’s motorcycle, as well as helmer Nolan as he calls shots from behind the camera.
The Dark Knight Rises is set to hit theaters July 20th, 2012. Take a look at the first pictures from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania set here.
