The Dark Knight Rises Rumor and Speculation: The Batcave
There has been speculation about shooting locations for the Dark Knight Rises since February. Many locations we could only guess at, but we knew there would be a Wayne Manor exterior and interior, which turned out to be Wollaton Hall and Osterly Park. Likewise we know there must be a Batcave, exterior and interior. At this point it is all rumor, but one rumor from nerdeux is particularly well-argued and conspicuously well-photographed.
Alright so originally it was rumored that Nolan had been shooting in Wales, in a national park, using a particular waterfall as part of the exterior for a new Batcave. They went on to say the actual cave was located there as well.
Well now rumor says that Nolan will be filming in the Turda Salt Mines in Romania for interior shots of the cave, despite confirmation that Warner Bros. is already building a “small” Batcave set on a soundstage. Again, this is just rumor, but when you see these photos of mines as they are now you’ll agree that they could be a perfect stand-in for the cave. More »
