    SPORTS FANS Welcome ?  Batman Bruins Vs The BANE Buccaniers !

  • Haha, sorry bout that.

    Seriously though, I wish I still lived near pittsburg, because I would love to be apart of a movie as huge as this, even as an extra.

  • Batman Fan

    I highly recommend people in the Pittsburgh area try-out for this.  I was an extra on Batman Begins when they filmed some of their Chicago area stuff.  It was some of the most fun I’ve had and everyone in the cast and crew was so nice.  I would have done it for free so the paycheck was like a nice bonus!

  • It’s great to live in Pittsburgh right now – Can’t wait til they start filming here!

    DAM ! @Jordy Roelofs , that picture of BANE with the BAT LOGO , Enblazed on his back , is EPIC , Great job !

    The sports fans part reminds me of the rumor around blowing up a stadium that was a making the rounds not too long ago. Maybe there will be something to that rumor after all (without the blowing up part of course). Just a random thought anyway.

  • No idea about this city… is it a big cosmopolitan city?

    Anyone who lives in Pittsburg… you have NO idea how lucky you are this movie is being filmed there. I would give my left nut, arm, leg, eye, ear, ANYTHING to be apart of this movie, no matter how small.

    I’m up for a road trip to Pittsburgh its only a 4-6 hour drive from where I live in Jersey and even though they may film in Newark in the fall, I still be more than willing.

    You lucky pittsburghers… go on and take part of movie history! I know I would…

  • I saw in the brazilian entertainment website OMELETE, this curious article about Pittsburgh shooting:

    O pedido de extras e a descrição sugerem que serão cenas de exteriores em um cenário caótico: “Um filme da Warner Bros. requer figurantes para interpretar vítimas e agressores em uma cidade sitiada pelo crime e pela corrupção”.

    Poorly translated, it means the extras are been recruited for some chaotic riots on the streets sugesting that Gotham is surrounded by crime and corruption.


  • Zach21yamaha21drummer

    How old do you to be for this?

  • i really wish they would have made this for all ages. 
    it upsets me that for younger teens such as myself i cant do it because im not 18 yet. 

  • Ella_jones91

  • Szophialeighx
