Christian Bale & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Film ‘Dark Knight Rises’ in NYC (PHOTOS)

Pow! Batman Vs. Bane
Christian Bale films fight scene for ‘Dark Knight Rises.’
The Dark Knight Rises is ready to start some crime-fighting antics on the streets of New York City. Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were spotted early Friday morning walking to set.

Although plans to shoot at Zuccotti Park have been nixed, the cast and crew will still film near Wall Street. Onlookers have also spotted Knight production crews set up near the Plaza hotel. According to Gothamist, “Two stars will appear in full costume for a scene which will involve more than 1000 extras.”

The movie has been shot all over the country, including Pittsburgh where we caught the first glimpse of Anne Hathaway dressed as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman.) In the pics, she’s wearing a black leather suit and high-tech goggles while riding the Batpod!

Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, is set to be released in July 2012, and given the whopping success and acclaim from The Dark Knight in 2008, Rises is already being tapped as a contender for the biggest movie of the year.
