Are you a football player? Want to be in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’? [Update]

A massive casting call in Pittsburgh for The Dark Knight Rises wrapped up a few weeks ago. If you didn’t make it out to the audition and happen to play football, you may still be able to participate in Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman finale. Sports Studio is looking for football players, ages 22 to 35, with extensive football experience. Filming will take place in Pittsburgh on Saturday, August 7th from 7am-7pm. For more information, hit up the source link.

Update 06/30/11: Don’t play football? No problem! Extras are needed to cheer on the Gotham Rogues as they take the field against the Rapid City Monuments. Find out more at Be In a Movie.

        I know ,the next 12 months are pretty good for Batman fans Arkham city ,Year One animated , then the main Event TDKR,also, Blood on the knuckles , nice touch !

        • Batman Inc

          It’s the year of the bat. Don’t forget that The Dark Knight Returns animated is being made as well. It’s such a great time to be a bat fan.

    Demographic of Batman fans: 
    Geeks/Fanboys/Fangirls/Too skinny: 99.9%
    Casual movie goers who picked up a comic after seeing TDK: 0.1%
    Football players… No. They wouldn’t. 

  • Amartblue99

    bane and batman are going to decide the battle for gotham’s soul! in a foot ball game! YES!!!

  • Tebay71

    Could you change the banner picture to somebody who’s not a rapist?

      Drew Brees! This punk shouldn’t be anywhere near a Batman site; Bruce is a philanthropist not a sexual deviant.

  • Dustin Morley

    I’m a hockey fan and know nothing about football, but cool. I’m wondering if this might be a professional team owned by Wayne Enterprises. Given that they’re the biggest corporation in a big city in America it would make sense. And then Bruce Wayne can attend a game and be attacked by somebody who knows his identity as Batman.

    Maybe they should hire the guys who played the Batman impersonators in The Dark Knight. Those guys like to dress up and make fools of themselves.

  • Ex-KGB

    Gotham Rogues. That’s awesome. Rogues Gallery reference means Nolan does his homework.

    • TDKR2012

      Anyone think this has something to do with the Plane Crash scene in the movie? i can just imagine the fans looking up and seeing the plane heading for the ground, flames, panic, mayhem, the Dark Knight!

        I think , it will turn out , that Alfred has become a gambling addict , and Wayne Manor is riding on this game = )

  • Americanthrift

    They should just get all the Steelers? There’s a lock out ya know…They’re not busy and could use the work!!!!

      That’s actually not a bad idea. I guess they don’t want anyone famous/recognizable.

        Chris bit of a boring one , but is it just on my pages of Batman-News.com , the picture of Batman that is usaly on the left hand of the screen is gone , has this happened for anyone else , Tell me if i am reading far to much into this , but it seemed to go , when BOF S new page design popped up , have you seen it , imitation is the most sincere form of flattery !

          Batman is usually on the right side. Just make sure your browser window is set to the biggest size. I still see him on my page.

            Mark my words: the name of this COPA AMERICA will be: Paulo Henrique “GANSO”, our new number 10!

  • The Fat Batman

    Wasn’t there plans for a football stadium to get demolished and rumors had it that Warners were trying to get rights to film it for the movie. This casting may be telling us that something big is about to happen.
