Batman The Dark Knight Rises Filming in Pittsburgh!

Batman The Dark Knight Rises Filming in Pittsburgh! Maybe. (Batman-ish pic thanks to charness)

The Steelers lost the Super Bowl, but Batman is going to film in Pittsburgh. We win.

Pittsburgh as Gotham City, can you picture it? The rumors about the Burgh’s role in the next Batman flick have gone viral – but they are still just rumors for now. We think it’s destiny, and Batman’s costume is Black and Yellow for a reason.

IMDB lists Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, England, and Romania as filming locations for The Dark Knight Rises, but no sign of the 412.

The word started circulating after a few Hollywood publications announced actress Marion Cotillard’s involvement in the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter:

The plan is for Cotillard to start shooting mid-June in London, film all summer in L.A. and Pittsburgh and wrap mid-November in New York.

Even that quote is inconsistent with IMDB’s list, but it’s not uncommon for filming locations to change suddenly.
