By the time The Dark Knight Rises opens nearly 11 months from now, there may be very few surprises left in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film. Oh, sure, we don’t know the plot — Batman slugging it out with Bane doesn’t tell us much — but visually? So far, from the Pittsburgh set, we’ve seen Catwoman riding a Batpod, and Miranda Tate (or is that “Miranda Tate’?) climbing out of a Tumbler. And on Friday we got our first look at a new vehicle being widely referred to as the Batwing, Bruce Wayne’s long-rumored aircraft.
That was followed over the weekend by numerous videos of the Batwing in action, “flying” through the streets of
the Steel City Gotham City. We’ll have to squint and tilt our heads to imagine what the aircraft, and the sequence, will look like after it goes through post-production, but it gives us a decent idea of what to expect. If you don’t want to know what to expect, don’t watch any of these videos below (some of which may contain spoilers).
The Dark Knight Rises, which opens July 20, 2012, stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Morgan Freeman.
