‘The Dark Knight Rises’ wraps in Pittsburgh, Christopher Nolan says “thank you”

The Dark Knight Rises wrapped up in Pittsburgh today. The actors and crew arrived to the city in late July, and we’ve seen quite a bit of The Dark Knight Rises this past month. Christopher Nolan placed an ad in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, thanking the city of Pittsburgh. Thanks to Yurka from the Superhero Hype forums we have a scan. Here’s a huge list of the news to come out of the Pittsburgh shoot:

Now Nolan and crew are off to Los Angeles, where they’ll be doing some studio work, as well as on location shooting. After that, they’ll finish up The Dark Knight Rises this fall in New York.

    Can i just take this opportuniyt to thank SUBARUWRXFAN ,he took scooping to a new level this summer ” If you make yourself more than just a fan with a camera ,If you devote yourself to an ideal, and if TDKR sercurity team carnt stop you , you become something else Mr SUBARUWRXFAN , a pain in Nolans arse( a LEGEND) ” = )

      True! Subaruwrxfan did a fantastic job. Best ninja’s we’ve got so far.

      People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and he couldn’t do that as himself, as a man…in flesh and blood he could be arrested, he could be sued, but as a symbol…as  a symbol he could be incorruptible, he could be everlasting…

      What symbol?

      Something…viral.  Something terrifying….

    • OneEyedWillie

      I really think SUBARUWRXFAN is in fact, a member of Team Nolan. After all, this is being the best viral “involuntary” campaign ever! :P

        I agree. Notice how almost all of the spy footage came from one person who had pretty high quality equipment. It’s hard to believe there weren’t others taking video. Team Nolan had to know someone was going to film the outdoor scenes. So they beat them to the punch. Notice how the footage we’ve seen doesn’t really give away a lot. Yes, we learn that Bane has Tumblers of his own and that Selina rides the Batpod. But now people are just filling the blanks with guesses. Nolan accomplished his mission, which is to make headlines for a movie that won’t come our for another year.

      “Look whoever Subaruwrxfan is, he doesn’t want to do this forever, how could he? He’s looking for someone to take up his mantle…”

        Lets see who will take Subaruwrxfan’s place in Los Angeles

      Sorry, but I have to disagree 100% with this.  Yes, it’s cool to see something new every now and then to keep the excitement up, but this guy (or girl) took it WAY too far.  It seems like every single day there was something new on this site, and it was to the point where this was just one big spoiler site because of him.  There’s a difference between news and flat out spoilers, and this person crossed it, big time.  I’m sure everyone here is going to disagree, but that’s just my personal opinion.

        Fair comment , but no one forces you to watch or look at Spoilers , Everything was clearly marked on the site , so it was your choice , but i know what your saying , in hind sight i wish i had the strength not to look at The Bat Wing , but i am weak = )

        • Skip182

          Ya that’s the main thing I was most dissapointed about too : (

  • Sushamna Deodhar

    It’s time for SUBARUWRXFAN to move to LA

    • Antrozous

      I´m sure another spy will take the mantle. They´ve seen the potencial by now.

      Would be kind “stange” to see this guy in the other side of the country doing what he does best: spilling the beans!

  • OneEyedWillie

    Just imagine when this shit arrives in NY… man, i’m naIling my balls on the desktop of such excitement! Now seriuosly, all that i wanted would be this: “THANK YOU RIO” :~)

    Chris Nolan wanted to show the people of Pittsburgh their city doesn’t belong to the ordinary movies and stuff like that

  • h4v0k_528491

    it would make sense to me if they went to new york first and then los angeles so wen they r done studio work they r already in la where they do post production etc

  • Sammy Doja

    Seem’s like they left a tumbler in the street down below. =)

  • Daveyognaught

    wow.. they really didnt get much done in a month to be honest:P  they filmed a couple scenes outside of the “city hall”.  there was a big fight.  catwoman makes an appearance.  they filmed a football scene with bane.  they drove around the  city in tumblers and had batman chase him in his batwing.

    • h4v0k_528491

      it can take a couple if days to film one scene; u also forgot about marion cottilard

    • Antrozous

      Yeah, they are a bunch of lazy asses, they should wrap the entire movie in 3 weeks or so and releasing it in the Fall…

      That or you have little knowledge of how things work.

      • Daveyognaught

        haha calm down man.. obviously i know large movies like this take time.  which is why theyve been filming all summer and will continue to film into november.  all i said is im suprised with the  amount of time it takes to film just a few scenes!  gonna be awesome cant wait!

  • AlexHeyNa

    Where to next? LA? I hope so!

  • Antrozous

    All this pseudo quotes are getting everything but amusing by now. Just saying guys..

    I´ve seen enough of the film by now. I really hope they can at least keep the cave set free from prying eyes. Damn, 2012 is long way ahead of us, I really hope in December we can get our Christmas gift: the trailer.

      ” WHY SO SERIOUS ” Sorry Antro , could not resist = )

    • Bubba

      For that second part, I totally agree.

      However, for that first part, all I have to say is: why so serious?

      :)

    • Paddy

    All class.

  • Nicepittfan

    Thank you to those who brought the film to Pittsburgh! I can’t believe they were here. From the announcement in April to the bat signal to the press conference with Christian and all the filming–so much excitement for ‘Burgh bat fans. Another Heinz Field extra here. Being a paid two-day extra was the highlight of the year! I’m sad to see Mr. Nolan and crew depart and I can’t wait to see it in IMAX!

  • Deakster
