Another viral jigsaw piece for The Dark Knight Rises appeared today on Empire's website. This is a one-page transcript between an unidentified individual and a "militia" talking about someone wanting to come to America. The name "Dr. Pavel" is mentioned. As was the case with the Wired document, it's supposed to be taken from the CIA's library.

Has the interior of a new Batcave been revealed to us?

Unconfirmed reports have surfaced that the interior of a redesigned Batcave will be seen in The Dark Knight Rises and that it will resemble the look of a salt mine in Romania.

The place in question is called the Turda Salt Mines, and as the photo on the left suggests, they look pretty spectacular. The mines use bright, unconventional lighting in one of the circular chambers. This is supposedly the spot being modeled after for the new Batcave, and the story is that some filming was done here recently. A replica of the Turda location was then built on a set in Los Angeles where additional filming will take place.

We checked with Batman on Film, our go-to source for insider Batman movie info. The site states that the Batcave will be seen in TDKR but they avoided mentioning whether it will resemble the look of the Turda mines. That's interesting.

The studio has announced that production has officially begun:



BURBANK, CA, May 19, 2011 – Principal photography has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' The Dark Knight Rises, the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian Bale (The Fighter) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.

Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine (The Cider House Rules) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby) reprises the role of Lucius Fox.

In helming The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan is utilizing IMAX® cameras even more extensively than he did on The Dark Knight, which had marked the first time ever that a major feature film was partially shot with IMAX® cameras.  The results were so spectacular that the director wanted to expand the use of the large-format cameras for this film.

The screenplay for The Dark Knight Rises is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer.  The film is being produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on Batman Begins and the record-breaking blockbuster The Dark Knight.  The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer.  The Dark Knight is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.  Batman was created by Bob Kane.

Behind the scenes, The Dark Knight Rises reunites the director with several of his longtime collaborators, all of whom worked together on the The Dark Knight.  The creative team includes director of photography Wally Pfister, who recently won an Oscar® for his work on Nolan's Inception; production designer Nathan Crowley; editor Lee Smith; and Oscar®-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (Topsy-Turvy).  In addition, Paul Franklin and Chris Corbould, who both won Oscars® for the effects in Inception, will supervise the visual and special effects, respectively.  The music will be composed by Oscar® winner Hans Zimmer (The Lion King).

The locations for The Dark Knight Rises span three continents and include the American cities of Pittsburgh, New York and Los Angeles, as well as sites in India, England and Scotland.

The Dark Knight Rises is a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Legendary Pictures.  Slated for release on July 20, 2012, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

The studio has officially announced the casting of Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the movie. Better still, Warner Bros. has also provided the character names and descriptions for the two's characters...and they're kind of not what anyone expected.

Cotillard's character is named Miranda Tate and she's an employee of Wayne Industries. At her job she's been asked to "help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father's philanthropic endeavors for Gotham." Interesting that the official press statement referred to Bryce Wayne as still "grieving", doesn't it?

Gordon-Levitt's character is a Gothm City beat cop named John Blake. He's been assigned by Commissioner Gordon to provide some kind of "special duty". Maybe he's been ordered to lead the men that are hunting down Batman?

Batman is coming to Steel City.

The Dark Knight Rises production will shoot for four to six weeks in Pittsburgh this summer. The town will stand in for Gotham City, although some second unit photography is being done in Manhattan.

"Pittsburgh is a beautiful city.  We have been able to find everything we were looking for here, and I am excited to spend the summer in Pittsburgh with our final installment of Batman," said director Christopher Nolan to the local newspaper.

"We are thrilled to be welcoming the Batman film to Pittsburgh, and eager for the economic impact that our city will experience," commented Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl. "This is another example of the growing film industry in our community, and we will be rolling out the red carpet for them."

Much speculation has been offered as to what character Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play in The Dark Knight Rises. While talk has ranged from JGL playing a villain from Batman's rogues gallery like The Riddler or The Holiday Killer, Variety claims that they know the part is for Alberto Falcone, the son of crime boss Carmine Falcone.

While appearing as a guest on British celeb Alan Carr's talk show, Tom Hardy talked a little about preparing for his role as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Hardy commented that the look of Bane in the new film will be very different than the hulked-out, masked monster in 1997's Batman and Robin, and that he's currently trying to put on 30 pounds of muscle to fill up to Bane's size.

Here's the video clip from the show:
