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.

The Dark Knight Rises Set Photos: Bane

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.

First wave of The Dark Knight Rises props hits ebay #TDKR

Pittsburgh is standing in for Gotham City in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises,and  the first wave of props and set dressing has begun to appear on ebay.  So far the Pittsburghers lucky enough to be extras are at a disadvantage from their Chicago counterparts on The Dark Knight.  They were passengers on the ferry and had logo’d Gotham City Transit tickets and schedules.

The Gotham Rogues version of The Steelers "Terrible Towel"

The Pittsburgh extras at Heinz Field last weekend were portraying fans of the hometown Gotham Rogues. They were given towels to wave, analagous to the Steelers own “Terrible Towel,” but alas the towels do not have any type of logo. At least one seller includes his set pass for authenticity.

Another enterprising Pittsburgher has collected some of the snow scattered as set dressing on the downtown streets.

Batman fans wanting a more identifiable piece of Gotham City more than an authentic movie prop should keep their eyes open.  The Dark Knight viral produced The Gotham Times newspaper, Wayne Industries Bearer Bonds, and Gotham Pizza pizza boxes.  Most command high prices the first time they appear, and then settle in the $10-20 range, so unless you really have to have it, sit tight.

The Dark Knight Rises Gotham Stadium Video: Batman-Bane Melee

Another impressive video from the weekend filming of The Dark  Knight Rises Gotham Stadium/Heinz Field over the weekend, this time a Batman-Bane melee from Pittsburgh’s WPXI

The Dark Knight Rises Gotham Stadium Video | Geekosophy

Geekosophy has assembled an impressive collection of images and video from the weekend filming of The Dark  Knight Rises in Pittsburgh over the weekend, specifically the explosive scene at Heinz field standing in for Gotham Stadium, home of The Gotham Rogues football team

Earlier we reported that Ben Roesthlisberger, as well as a couple of his friends from the Pittsburgh Steelers would take part in a scene for Chirstopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, well some photos and video have just been released detailing how exactly that scene may play out in the film.  It goes without saying that the rest of this post contains massive spoilers for the film, so read at your own risk.

WPXI brings us this photo of how Heinz Field has been changed to suit the needs of the scene:

Some Redditor extras also managed to snap a couple of pictures while the set is filming, go here to see the full gallery:

Lastly, a fan somehow managed to sneak a camera on set (it looks higher quality than a cell-phone camera) and brings us this video of how the scene plays out:

The description reads:

After Bane [Tom Hardy] blows up the football field [check my other video for the explosion scene] when 86 of the Gotham Rogues [Hines Ward] runs to make a touchdown after the kick off [this is what we were told was going on during filming] he comes out to address and strike fear in Gotham [us]. The raised part you see is whats suppose to be left of the football field. He comes out and pulls the microphone from the dead? ref [which is just a dummy] on the ground outside the tunnel where he comes out with his thugs and someone he has prisoner. He also drags out some big crazy device thats supposedly the means of our destruction….i’ll annotate what he says becuz honestly [and you can hear me and my friend laughin about it with the mask he had on, mixed with his accident, mixed with how he was doing the voice it sounded like an old man with a respirator on. Not sure if that has anything to do with Bane’s medical background and drug experiments

They then go on to get some amusing mileage out of Bane’s voice, without considering the possibility that it was a put on.  There is a lot that couldn’t be hidden from the public, but audio substitution is easy enough.  In secrecy productions, fake dialogue has been recorded to conceal plot points even from the production crew and cast.
