Dark Knight Rises filming info reveals probable plot point

Jul. 11, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Those wary of any potential spoilers regarding THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, abandon all hope ye who enter here. Well not really, as this isn't anything TOO major, but if you want to be completely in the dark, perhaps stop reading now.

READY?

OK.

Well Carnegie Melon has posted some info about Batman filming at their Software Engineering Institute, and it reveals something about what Bane will probably be up to in the film.

"Scenes outside the SEI, which will be portrayed as a prison, will include an explosion, a prison break, precision stunt driving, gunfire, atmospheric smoke, and controlled pyrotechnic explosions.

Scenes outside the Fifth Ave. entrance of Mellon Institute include a standoff between two rivals that escalates into a riot. One character drives a motorcycle through the fourth floor lobby, out the front doors and down the steps onto Fifth Ave. Special effects include precision stunt driving, gunfire and atmospheric smoke."

This is in line with one of Bane's plans from comic lore, where he released Gotham's criminals to test Batman. But didn't we kind of do that in the first film? The second thing to note is the "standoff between two rivals." Presumably that could be Batman, but it could be more likely it's villains going at it during the riot. Bane and...who? Speculate away. 

Extra Tidbit: Hope those rumors of a forthcoming teaser trailer turn out to be true.

I'm thinking...

It's Batman who crashes through the fourth floor lobby? But who knows?! Bring on the teaser already!

How the fuck is this, in any way, a spoiler? Seriously Peter Jackson vlogs info 10 times more important than this daily.

Regardless, this article hardly reveal anything. This "spoiler" will must likely be the subject of the first trailer.

I thought Batman Teasers were usually just a few printed words, then some sort of Bat reference, and then the name of the movie. I highly doubt we'll get footage yet.

Catwoman has had a motorcycle in the comics and cartoons. Now that would be a sweet way to differentiate Nolan's Catwoman with Tim Burton's.

And I hope the references to a prison breakout mean we finally get to see Blackgate portrayed on film.

Well any Batman news is good & i doubt the teaser will show any actual footage so it was probably specifically filmed to be a teaser & probably some voiceovers & the logo for the movie.

This is speculation, but perhaps Bane releases the prisoners of Arkham in order to draw Batman out, as opposed to testing him or wearing him down. Presumably, Batman is less of a public figure since becoming Public Enemy No. 1 at the end of "The Dark Knight" and with Catwoman possibly stepping up to help fill the void. Just my two cents!

a question...

I think it's safe to assume that that 'prison' will be Arkham Asylum right? Well if that's true when this jailbreak happens wouldn't The Joker be let out as well seeing as I thought they sent him there at the end of The Dark Knight? now IF that all holds true it'd be interesting to see how they handle that situation...

They should do a Terminator 2 Skynet building type of scene for the jail break. Motorcycle drives through the floor and out onto the helicopter outside. And Bane's shooting up the cops outside. Doesn't have to be exactly like that, but something similar would be SWEEET.
