Top Posts of the Week: Batman finally on top of Catwoman, just in time for Valentine’s Day

Fine, call us sexists.  We at the Gotham Trending office try to remain impartial but we are men, and seeing Catwoman, Anne Hathaway and Selina Kyle beating Bruce Wayne, Christian Bale and Batman week after week for the top spot in his own movie, we can’t help it.  We can’t help but root for the underdog and we can’t help but cheer now that Bruce/Christian/Dark Knight has finally won the day.

The costumes in Dark Knight Rises are pretty amaz … wait, these are Oregon’s Rose Bowl uniforms?

The Dark Knight Rises - No wait, that's Nike?

The Dark Knight Rises - No wait, that's Nike?

This has nothing to do with The Gotham Rogues or Bane’s assault on Gotham Stadium/Heinz field.  We would have said it was a simple case of Nike Pro or Off the Bench standing next to the popular kid, using the interest in The Dark Knight Rises to bring a little of the spotlight their way for Phil Knight “Nike Pro Combat experiments” except this stuff really looks like the Dark Knight inspiration started back on the drawing board, not writing the press release.  Check out the “liquid black metal finish”, “armored wing design,” and “chaine maille mesh” for the back, arms and sides.

Note: I’m pretty sure the wings aren’t an actual part of Oregon’s new Rose Bowl uniforms, but when it comes to Phil Knight Nike Pro Combat experiments, one never knows. Well, here you go Wisconsin: deal with this.

Liquid black metal finish. Armored wing design that will go under the shoulder pads (whatever that means). “Chain Maille Mesh” on the back, arms and sides. More views at Nike’s Facebook page (check out the helmet).

Oh, and the numbers will shift colors as the player moves.

Nike is based in Oregon and Knight, the company’s co-founder, former CEO and current chairman, is a Ducks alum. But he also graduated from the Stanford School of Business … you should see the wild suits those students wear.

There are a number of photos and video from a distance of Tom Hardy’s Bane at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field doubling for Gotham Stadium in The Dark Knight Rises.  These close-ups are much better.

Heinz Field Transforms Into “Gotham Stadium” For Filming Of “The Dark Knight Rises” « CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Thousands of people were in the stands at Heinz Field Saturday for a very different kind of fan experience.

There were football players and lots of cheering, but no game was going on. Instead, it was the day of the much-publicized filming of a scene fir the new “Batman” movie.

The crowd cheered wildly for the black and gold in a big showdown at Heinz Field.

The event was a homecoming for former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher who returned to the sidelines with Hines Ward and Ben Roethlisberger.

But they are not wearing Steelers uniforms. They were part of a fictitious team called the Gotham Rogues using Heinz Field, or “Gotham Stadium” for the day, as a backdrop for the filming of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

KDKA’s Bob Allen reports:

“It’s kind of funny; it’s black and gold, they’re using the Steelers and everything. It’s going to be weird on screen,” said Matt Maranowski, who was hoping to catch a glimpse of the action from outside Heinz Field.

Some spectators could not get on the list to be one of the film’s 10,000 extras. But that didn’t stop them from standing outside the stadium.

“[I] just want to get in there and sit there and see the view because you can’t see anything from here,” said Batman fan, Michael Grabowski.

A week of filming at various locations in the city, and the Caped Crusader seems to be having a huge impact on Pittsburghers.

“I’ve always been a huge ‘Batman’ fan; and so, just to see how all this is going to work out in the movie, it’s just kind of cool to see so much of the city in the movie and stuff,” said Maranowski.

For many extras, today was a test of survival in the heat. Till Juettener had two friends cheering in the stadium.

Ben Roethlisberger To Play Catch With Batman? #TDKR

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ News: Ben Roethlisberger To Play Catch With Batman?

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today, Ben Roethlisberger, Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers talked about his role as an extra in Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.  ”I’m kind of getting everybody together,” Roethlisberger told the Post-Gazette.  A couple of months ago we learned that Nolan was looking for extras to participate in a ‘football’ scene, and now we know a bit more about what that scene might entail.  ”I heard it’s going to be a neat thing at the stadium. I don’t think it will be a big part, it’s not like we’re chasing Batman down or anyting. It’s something neat that in 10 years or 20 years we can tell our kids we were in a movie. Thomas does movies big and I’m sure it will be a big-time movie and something fun to be part of.”

Not going to bother speculating on how this might play out in the movie, it’s simply too weird to imagine Ben Roethlisberger in any movie, let alone a batman one.
