    Gothams going to look crazy , this time round , a mix of , Glasgow , Pittsburgh and L.A , carnt wait to see it , Chicargo on its own , felt a bit bland in TDK .

  • Frankshattuck87

    Do we have to have any prior experience or a SAG card? And, to avoid confusion, the so-called “Magnus Rex” IS a fake name for “The Dark Knight Rises,” correct?

    • Xer Sungam

      No need for prior experience. Magnus Rex is Magnus Rex.

  • Xer Sungam

    It’ll be a fun shoot. Hope to see some of you Batman fanatics out at the open casting call.

  • Frankshattuck87

    Also, is it a requirement to live in Los Angeles? I currently reside in Riverside, CA.

    • As long as you can make it to LA for the audition, and on the days when they’re filming, you should be OK!

        Hey Chris , i know there will not be a TDKR panel , at Comic Con , but do you think or have you heard , if there will be any kind of presence ? i remember , the Comic Con the year before TDK , there was no panel , but they did the cool T- shirt and Joker planes stunt ! I live in hope , for our first look at Cat Woman over the weekend !

      • Shahbaz W

        What about the comic con day 1 update?..no TDKR in it ?

    • Xer Sungam

      No requirement. You just have to be there during the call times. 10-1 or 2-6. Get there early because it may be crowded. The lodge is located on the corner of Ventura Blvd & Coldwater Canyon. Look for “Magnus Rex” yellow signs. Hope to see you there!

    Off Topic , After BANE , has finished with BATMAN , he is going to be left in a 1000 ( Lego ) pieces = )

    • There’s an american phrase that really captures the philosophy behind their battle.
      The phrase is “getting my shit ruined”

  • Anyone know when shooting of the movie is scheduled to be completed? I’m curious to know how long the film will be in post production.

    NO! NO! Not six months later and I’d be eligible! This would go down as one of the greatest things I would do in my life, and I can’t bloody well do it!
    Well… I kind of AM an Australian living in Europe. But apart from those two factors, I’m IN!

  • Mjjsp

    Will I have to dress for the part that ill would like to play or will they give like a shirt to wear? Cause I would be pretty worried if I looked like a gangster while walking in LA.

    • Xer Sungam

      Try to fit what they’re looking for. If you’re chosen wardrobe will provide you with clothes to wear.

      So cone as businessman, gangster. If you have tats let them know.

  • Jhiasd

    juste heard  the plot for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is going to start 5 years later from the end of TDK.

    • chubs

  • Bat-Kevo

    Our first look at Talia Al Ghul ! ! ! ! ! ! !   From Arkham City , sorry = )

    • Don’t like it at all!!! Blonde Talia? She’s an exotic dark haired chick, not some hooker from Red Light district!

  • shibbybacon

    What should we be expecting at the casting call? as far as “auditioning” goes. Incase someone has never been

  • shibbybacon

    And in the link, it says something about a “SAG” card, how do we obtain one of these cards?

    • Jayee

      I was wondering that same thing. Do we even need a SAG car though?

      • shibbybacon

        Yeah it confused me a bit, it said photo i.d and all that but i was confused when it mentioned that card. seems like they only want people with one of them
