Comic Book Movie also claims that Desmond Harrington, who plays a police officer on Dexter, was playing at Gotham City police officer in The Dark Knight Rises.Matthew Modine spoke to Indiewire about why The Dark Knight Rises didn't shoot at Occupy Wall Street:

The wisdom of Christopher Nolan and his incredible team was that, while it seemed like a good idea to give [the protestors] an opportunity for work, to give them money, it would send a terrible message. At the end of the day, we're making a movie. What's happening down there is more important than that. To co-opt what's happening there and around the country... we didn't want to trivialize it. It was more important to respect what they're doing than to do anything that could potentially trivialize the political situation downtown.

It's funny, when I go to red carpets people have this mockup photo of what they think I'm going to look like in the movie. But the point is it's totally inaccurate! [On the mockups], I have a Fu-Man Chu and some kind of SS uniform. I just want to tell everybody out there, that's not the way it is.

What I tried to do was use the backdrop of the splintered Soviet Empire – a lawless insane asylum with four hundred some odd nuclear missile silos. It was all about loose nukes, and I felt it was very timely and very cool. Unfortunately, as I was coming up on the final draft, a number of female vigilante movies came out. We had Tomb Raider and Kill Bill, which were the ones that worked, but then we had BloodRayne and Ultraviolet and Aeon Flux. Aeon Flux didn't open well, and three days after it opened, the studio said, "We don't think it's time to do this movie." I accepted their logic in terms of the saturation of the marketplace, but it was pretty painful. I had not only invested a lot of time in that movie, but I had also named my daughter, who was born in that time period Natasha – after the lead character in Black Widow. I named my daughter after a movie that I wasn't working on anymore.
