‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is filming in the UK

Last week Hero Complex confirmed where The Dark Knight Rises would not be filming, and now Variety knows where it will. In a recent article, Variety confirms that The Dark Knight Rises crew will be heading back to the Cardington hangars, which sit just outside of Bedford. This isn’t a huge surprise, both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were shot there. Hopefully we’ll see the return of the Batcave, Wayne Manor, and the Narrows, all of which are over in the UK. I think it’s safe to assume production will also be returning to Chicago as well.

In another bit of news, production designer Nathan Crowley will be returning for The Dark Knight Rises. Crowley has previously worked on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Production is scheduled to begin in May 2011.
