Want to read a detailed rundown of what went down on The Dark Knight Rises this weekend complete with between-shot entertainment and full spoilers? What’s a major problem with The Avengers? When might we see a Guillermo Del Toro produced Hulk TV show? Does Denis Leary think he’ll be back for The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Read about all of this and more in today’s Superhero Bits.
I didn’t leave it anywhere. Actually, when they sent it to me, they sent it to me online. My assistant went to print it out, and when he printed it out, he didn’t realize the printer had a memory, so when he brought me my script, the script was still in the printer, so somebody somewhere discovered that this was ‘The Avengers’ script.
From Marvel to DC, here we go with a round up of what happened with The Dark Knight Rises this weekend.
On Friday, the Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Pittsburgh Steelers players like Ben Roethlisberger would be appearing in scenes from The Dark Knight Rises that would be shooting at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Photos then were released of how the crew changed the stadium, thanks to WPXI (via Movieweb)
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette then released a video talking to some fans who were in the stadium. They refer to the scene as a “flashback” though and that doesn’t seem to be accurate, as you’ll read below.
And between takes, the production rolled the Tumbler out onto the field to entertain the crowd. The Tumblers were there just for the fans and are not in this scene. Thanks to GeekWeek for this video.
But what exactly was filmed? Well, now we get into MAJOR SPOILER TERRITORY. If you don’t want to be spoiled, jump to the bottom of the page. The rest of the page is Batman spoilers.
As per the above video, uploaded by YouTube user ChangeThaChannel, here’s the idea of what happens at Heinz Field in The Dark Knight Rises as follows. Remember. SPOILERS. Here’s the description of the video:
After Bane [Tom Hardy] blows up the football field when 86 of the Gotham Rogues [Hines Ward] runs to make a touchdown after the kick off [this is what we were told was going on during filming] he comes out to address and strike fear in Gotham. The raised part you see is whats suppose to be left of the football field. He comes out and pulls the microphone from the dead (?) ref [which is just a dummy] on the ground outside the tunnel where he comes out with his thugs and someone he has prisoner. He also drags out some big crazy device that’s supposedly the means of our destruction. I’ll annotate what he says because honestly [and you can hear me and my friend laughing about it] with the mask he had on, mixed with his accident, mixed with how he was doing the voice it sounded like an old man with a respirator on. Not sure if that has anything to do with Bane’s medical background and drug experiments
Screenrant also does a good job of compiling all of the above The Dark Knight Rises information into one digestible bite.
