The twitterverse has been tweeting that The Dark Knight Rises is doing some filming involving Inverness Airport, but there was never confirmation or detail, until this tag on an IGN article about stars Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne), Michael Caine (Alfred) and Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle) filming interior Wayne Manor scenes at the Osterley Park mansion:
Aerial scenes are presumably second unit, accounting for the inability of civilians to confirm anything.
Production is continuing apace on “The Dark Knight Rises” in the UK and now Cory Booker, the Mayor of Newark in New Jersey, says he’s had a meeting with some of the filmmakers.
“Met with the producer and studio team for the next Batman Movie. Great people! They hope to film scenes in Nwk. Holy Brick City Batman! POW!” he said in a tweet over the weekend. More

Fanboys have the memory of a gypsy moth! So now Matthew Modine has been cast, and they’re screaming about “Too many villains.” Don’t they remember when they did the same thing with Batman Begins and half of them weren’t major characters but Zsasz on screen for 10 seconds.

She doesn’t say much in this 40 second interview with challenging sound quality, but will.i.am sat down with Anne Hathaway and that’s enough to get twitter a-tweeting
BATMAN LIVE focuses on Dick Grayson’s story and his quest for justice as Robin, which leads him to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Batman. The tacky Schumacher-esque costumes, cheesey batmobile and campy ’66 style performances have garnered a little flack, but really no one cares.
One account from movieweb.com alleges that Osterley Park will be the new Wayne Manor in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises…
Another from IGN names the far more beautiful Kedleston Hall
Or possibly both, with interiors at Osterley and exteriors at Kedleston. Osterley workers are already speculating about the stars
Osterley Park is the inside of the Wayne Manor. That’s right 3 rooms – dining room, and study – we forgot to ask what the 3rd room was – it was mentioned the study has a secret exit that will lead to the Batcave. Technically we are guaranteed sighting of Alfred (Michael Caine), Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), I think Anne Hathaway, as she’s likely to be having dinner with Bruce. –movieweb.com

I paid a visit to the Farmiloe building on St John Street, London being used for the Police station in the third Christian Bale Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, this morning (Monday) at 10am and it was a hive of activity, with the standard large trucks parked around housing the technical equipment and various fluorescent jacketed stewards and lanyard wearing staff walking about.

And hopes that Selina Kyle will indeed have long hair and a look/costume rejecting the current, unpopular comic book incarnation
I know it’s not much…But here are some photos of Anne Hathaway arriving at JFk airport, from the London TDKR set. As I mentioned in an earlier article, it really looks like Selina Kyle will have long hair after all.

Don’t expect any details of upcoming The Dark Knight Rises in this interview from Lodown Magazine, but Tom Hardy, who will be playing the blockbuster steroid-enhanced Bane, does touch briefly on his body-builders physique in relation to film:
I’d imagine that this has been the optimum your body has been in a film?
TH: Yeah, I was a stone heavier than Bronson and had no fat as well. I was 12 ½ stone when I did Bronson. I probably had a stone of fat on, so this was the biggest I’ve ever been. I was just on chicken and broccoli. To maintain a structure like that, takes a lot of energy and working also takes a lot of energy as well, it tested me tremendously. I was definitely the weakest link on the film for suffering and sniffling. I sniffled a lot on that film.
