Set video shows Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Batman-News.com reader Alex is back with another great set video. Alex was able to record Christian Bale and a female co-star (is that Anne Hathaway? Marion Cotillard?) filming a scene just outside Wollaton Hall, which is doubling as the new Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises. He also took a photo of Bale, check it out!

    that’s definitely Marion cotillard !!!!

    I can´t know for sure if it´s Anne or Marion who´s with Bale.The video quality doesn´t help.

    • Anonymous

      I am saying  90 % thats Cotillard , i think the biggest clue is the costume , its not very Selina Kyle like .

      • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ One_Eyed_Willie

        I bet another six-pack Heineken with you guys, that she’s Anne! Just take a look at the whiteness of her skin… Cotillard has darker skin, and by the way, she must be huge at this time.

        • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

          Nah!
          Cotillard has light skin equal to Anne.
          You´re saying nonsense.

          Actually she’s not. Here’s Cotillard just two weeks after giving birth. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1393924/Marion-Cotillard-shows-perfect-figure-TWO-WEEKS-giving-birth.html

    That camera is to small to be IMAX , right ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

       I´ve watched the video 10 times(fullscreen)and I think it´s Marion bur I´m not so sure exactly because the video quality is not so good.

        I agree , also another clue , i dont think Selina Kyle would travel to Wayne Manor in a Taxi cab !

        • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

          Why not?

        • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ One_Eyed_Willie

          That’s Nolan’s Selina Kyle, man… she’s a normal person, I guess. Besides, it’s daytime…so don’t expect to see her wearing black latex and swinging a whip! :D

  • BRUINS! 2011 CHAMPS!!

    The hair makes me think it Cotillard. I doubt they shot this scene in IMAX there probably isnt much action going on.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah your probaly right , i just had a hope , this would be the first full movie shot in IMAX .

  • RustyCage

    Regardless of who it is, I was charmed when Bale protected her with the newspaper. :)

    • cee

      Haha, that was really sweet of him. 

  • http://grauskala.blogspot.com/ One_Eyed_Willie

    Anne Hathaway – 99.9% sure!
    Yeah, I want to see Gotham under some bad weather!

    • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

      It´s not Anne!

        You should go work in CSI!

    Chris Nolan is so easy to spot in his director costume.

  • Simon

    Looks like Marion to me. 

  • Knight_g77

    Wow!Bruce Wayne and a woman(Anne or Marrion)in a rainy scene!The Dark Knight Rises will be more like a Batman movie than the Dark Knight,because it’s focusing on Batman.I really want Christian Bale to look the way he did in Batman Begins.His body was more muscular and his face was cuter.His face isn’t clear in this photo.But based on the overall appearance I can make out,he seems stronger than The Dark Knight

  • resudes

    Why is he knocking the front door if it’s his own house? Typical, in a country where the one thing you can depend upon is rain they have to create their own!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Henry-Sanchez/8834165 Henry Sanchez

      funny i had same thought about why Bale would be struggling to enter his own home

      • resudes

        Batman can’t get into his own house? Maybe he lost his keys? to find out stay tuned, same bat-time, same bat-channel… BTW I’m pretty certain that’s Anne hathaway there!

      • Antrozous

        In that scene Bruce seems a little bit surprised to find the doors locked, I´ll bet Alfred isn´t there at that time. Could this be when Bruce returns from his healing process? Or is it close to the end of the film? They seem intimate already…

    That looks like Anne to me.  Anne is known (at times) for having pretty dark hair and being pretty pale.  Marion usually maintains her middle-shaded brown hair color and most of the time she isn’t that pale. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

      Cotillard´s hair is long now.
      Haven´t you seen her last pics?
      And Anne´s hair is not all dark at this moment…it´s with some lights.
      And Marion´s skin is light,too.
      We cannot know for sure,clearly who it is.

    NOT G

    Fucking love them all.Can’t wait for the teaser

  • Antrozous

    I don´t want to sound ungrateful or anything but… wtf is wrong with people and phone cameras? Is it that hard to stay still for a couple of minutes? :S

    Storywise I´ll say I am 75% sure that it is Marion Cotillard in that scene.

  • Eric

    Did Marion even start filming because aren’t most of her scenes in the US production?

    It seems more plausible it could be Anne given the fact she’s been in the UK before production officially began and already filming.

    • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

      Marion started filming since mid June.
      She was seen fiming a scene with Bale and Caine the day after Neeson was spotted there.

      • Eric

        Yea but the actress in the video is quite tall and Anne is about 5’7″-5’8″ and my girlfriend keeps saying it’s her because even in high heels Marion won’t still look as tall as Christian.

        • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

          Nah!
          The height difference between Anne and Marion, is minimal!

          Anne hathaway is 5 foot 8 inches

          Marion Cotillard is 5 foot 6 inches.

          2 inches of difference is nothing.

      • linda.writing

        Ok, no offense but why are you trying so hard to convince others to jump and agree? He’s entitled to his opinion so trying to counterpoint his view is pointless. That’s why these are opinions NOT a consensus of facts.

        I think it’s Anne because of the way the actress walks and Marion is more graceful. I just guess we’ll wait and see.

        • http://www.facebook.com/JuliBaleGirl Juli Balehead

          But some people are trying to say that´s 100% Anne without really knowing.
          There´s no sure if it´s Anne or if it´s Marion,because we weren´t there.
          But her face doesn´t look like Anne´s.

          • linda.writing

            Aren’t you being hypocritical here? Yeah people have views BUT your little last statement is doing the same thing with the “not Anne” sentiment because of her face. It’s just a different point of view, no need to nip at others that DON’T say it’s Marion and get offended. Just chill out man.

            I think it’s Anne because of my gut but you think it’s Marion, is THAT so difficult for you?

  • sissi

    for me it is ITIS MARION COTILLARD OR ANNE HATTAWAY ?

  • sissi

    DECEPDECEPTION FOR ME MARION IT IS NOT TALIA SHE IS A SMALL ROLE IN TDRK

    • Cassie

      i too think it’s marion, but all of you are idiots for claiming it’s cotillard or hathaway, when the vid is obviously not of good enough quality to tell 100% who it is. so…can we just leave this to speculation and agree to disagree?

  • Dovegrayismyfavoritecolor

    That is absolutely no doubt about it Marion Cotillard. I am certain she is the love interest (Talia/Miranda) NOT Hathaway’s pathetic femme fatale.
