The Dark Knight Rises is ready to start some crime-fighting antics on the streets of New York City. Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were spotted early Friday morning walking to set.
Although plans to shoot at Zuccotti Park have been nixed, the cast and crew will still film near Wall Street. Onlookers have also spotted Knight production crews set up near the Plaza hotel. According to Gothamist, “Two stars will appear in full costume for a scene which will involve more than 1000 extras.”
The movie has been shot all over the country, including Pittsburgh where we caught the first glimpse of Anne Hathaway dressed as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman.) In the pics, she’s wearing a black leather suit and high-tech goggles while riding the Batpod!
Production on The Dark Knight Rises has now moved onto New York City for two weeks of location filming, which means you can expect quite a few set photos to surface. Such is the case today, as we’ve got some images featuring Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on set, as well as Bale hanging out in Trump Tower pretending it’s Wayne Enterprises (silly Bale, always getting his buildings mixed up), and a host of Wayne’s flashy car. The images don’t spoil anything from the film, so feel free to peruse if you’re so inclined.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. The film also stars Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th, 2012. [Update: More set photos have surfaced giving us a look at both Gordon-Levitt and Bale in full costume. They're included after the jump.
