So "The Dark Knight Rises" production hit New York City this week and as usual, everyone with a camera is taking pictures of whatever they can, and while we haven't kept up with the minutia of set photos this seems to be something fresh. Or not. But anyway, when Joseph Gordon-Levitt was first cast in the film it was said that he was playing a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty by Commissioner Gordon. Many assumed this was a ruse and that he was secretly playing someone much more important, but as these pics bear out...well, he's a beat cop. And it looks like he's assigned to protecting Bruce Wayne. MAYBE HE'LL BECOME ROBIN! Or maybe he's secretly the Joker's brother. Or maybe he's just a Gotham City beat cop assigned to special duty by Commissioner Gordon. We'll find out eventually.
In other Batman news, remember when it was recently rumored that Nolan and co. would be doing some shooting around Zuccotti Park and the Occupy Wall Street protests? Well, if you're been there walking around with a placard in the hopes of bumping into Christian Bale, you can give it a rest. There are no plans to shoot down there. Anyway, you already know this, but "The Dark Knight Rises" will land on July 20, 2012. More pics below. [via ONTD]
