Batman’s back! Christian Bale and Tom Hardy suited up on Sunday afternoon to film a brand new scene for the highly-anticipated “epic conclusion” to Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. Throwing a few punches, the two fought during an action sequence featuring Batman battling it out with the villainous Bane.

Between takes, Christian and director Christopher Nolan chatted behind the camera, as crowds of fans and onlookers snapped photos.
