Christian Bale and Tom Hardy duke it out on the NYC set of The Dark Knight Rises
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Despite the numerous set photos we’ve seen from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES over the past couple of months, speculation on my part is running rampant as to whether or not they’re going to follow the storyline in the comics where Bane breaks Batman’s back. It looks like they’re doing several Batman vs. Bane fight scenes, so I’m inclined to think it’s coming at some point in the film. On Saturday, they had a huge shoot that took up a good chunk of New York City and involved hundreds of extras. We get a few great shots of Batman and Bane, along with a few snaps of Christopher Nolan giving some direction to Christian Bale and Tom Hardy.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Juno Temple. The film opens everywhere on July 20th, 2012.
