We have more photos from the Dark Knight Rises set in Pittsburgh to go with the others from earlier. The one above is totally real and part of the canon for sure. The first picture in the gallery is a possible spoiler. It's a photo of Marion Cotillard on set. When she was cast, a rumor she'd be playing Talia al Ghul (Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter) was going around. The rumor seemed plausible since there have been set photos of what appeared to be the Lazarus Pits, Nolan has cast an actor to play the young Ra's, and some have reported Liam Neeson would make a cameo (a rumor Neeson has denied). The official word from Warner is that Cotillard is playing Miranda Tate, "a Wayne Enterprises board member eager to help a still-grieving Bruce Wayne resume his father’s philanthropic endeavors for Gotham." The Talia rumors are back on:
Now set photos from the streets of Pittsburgh seem to confirm what my sources told me months ago. They show Cotillard, dressed up like some kind of Nepalese Cossack or something, leading a group of armed mercs who have been previously associated with Bane in set photos. [BadassDigest]
Because if there's one thing superhero movies need, it's a bunch of extra villains. Anyway, there are several pictures below of Batman and Bane and of Tom Hardy between takes. Check out that sweet back acne on Bane's bulked-up body. Looks like Tom Hardy has really been juicing . . . carrots and apples with a Ronco Juicer between intense workouts. Yeah. That's the ticket.
