The Dark Knight Rises Thanks and Leaves Pittsburgh

The Dark Knight Rises wrapped up production this past weekend in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Christopher Nolan and Warner Brothers made sure to thank the city for their patience and support.

On Sunday, Nolan placed a full-page ad in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette featuring the key art from the film. Instead of the film’s title, he replaced those words with “Thank You Pittsburgh.” A classy move, indeed.

Production on The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh began in late July and lasted approximately three weeks. Most of the shoot occurred out on the open streets with fans and the world getting their first glimpse of Batman battling Bane, a trio of camouflaged Tumblers, Catwoman cruising on the Batpod, and Heinz Field being terrorized by Bane.

The biggest reveal to come out of Pittsburgh is Batman’s new aerial ride. No one has been able to confirm if the flying vehicle is a jet ala the Batwing or a helicopter, but everyone got great looks at it as it sped around the streets of Pittsburgh attached to a rig.

The Dark Knight Rises cast and crew including Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman, amongst others, will now make their way to Los Angeles, California. From there the production will travel to New York in a few weeks and wrap up.
