Morgan Freeman spotted on set of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

The Dark Knight Rises is still filming in Los Angeles, though it’s been a bit more quiet than the shoot in Pittsburgh. They recently wrapped up on the set in Torrance, California and reader Phil sent in a great report:

Well, filming for Dark Knight Rises officially wrapped today, this was confirmed by Wally Pfister himself to a couple of firends of mine who met him earlier. All in all, it was a fantastic shoot, and although most of what was shot was hidden from our view ( thank goodness, I’m happy to say) the itty bitty bits that I was able to see have left no doubt in my mind that this film is going to be TREMENDOUS! Non-spoiler: what I will never forget is seeing Christian Bale in the Batsuit. He looks massive and intimidating ( as I’m sure you’re witnessed yourself) and I truly can’t wait for this film. Anyway, I have seen a few things that I wil lnto discuss ( as I would consider them spoilers) and I did snag some pic, but I am only going to include the non-spoilers ones.

Productions now moves downtown to do interiors shots on the 3rd and 4th at a building location before moving to the 6th street bridge location for exterior filming on the 8th through the 11th. Just a heads up, lots of spoilerish imagery may pop up from the 6th street shoot, so just a heads up. I have some inside info on what’s filming there and it may be hard for Team Nolan to completely hide what they are doing there).

Phil also snapped some photos of Morgan Freeman and Christopher Nolan. Check them out after the break. Thanks Phil!

    I have to agree with Phil here. This movie will be a fine, excellent superhero movie to wrap up without a doubt, the greatest superhero trilogy of all time!

  • EBostock

    Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ! WTF is up with Freemans hand ?

    • He injured it in a car accident a couple of years ago. He usually wears some type of glove for protection on that hand. I don’t think it’s related to the story.

      • EBostock

        Thanks for clearing that up . i thought BANE had gone to work on him trying to find out The Batmans True identity !

        • Antrozous

          Morgan Freeman has his left hand paralyzed since 2008, even with a lot of surgery to repare the nerves he still needs to use a glove to avoid it from swelling too much. The car accident affected not only his hand but also arm and shoulder and he will never totally recover from that injury unfortunately… :(

        • Morgan Freeman would’ve kicked Bane’s ass.

    • thaBearJeW

      it looks like hes missing it wtf

      • thaBearJeW

        howd that happin

  • EBostock

    O.K this is just a wild guess on my part , but judging by the clothes and actions , we have been able to see so far from Fox , Gordan and Blake i am guessing they are some kind of risistence movement ! Just a feeling i am getting .

  • I wonder whats going down on 6th st. We’ll soon find out…

  • DevGau614

    Anyone notice his hand?  Whats up with that?  It looks fake… or prosthetic…  Maybe it has something to do with Bane stealing the Tumblers.

    • Bbuzzel

      According to this website, he was in a car accident a couple years ago and he puts that glove on for protection

  • Bbuzzel

    Wait soo Filming is over? that quick!? even if we havent been able to see some of that footage,i feel like its been soo quick since they started, when did they start again?

    • Filming wrapped in Torrance, CA. They’re still filming in LA for a couple more weeks, then wrapping up in New York later this fall. They started filming in May in India.

      • Guest

        I don’t think I’ve been this exited about a movie since The Phantom Menace came out. Exept I don’t think many people will be lined up around the block dressed as Batman inc.

  • Sammy Doja

    I remember the first time i laid eye’s on Andy Dufrane.Wait… what?????? nevermind

  • Banealghul

    MORGAN FUCKING FREEMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL YEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   LUCIUS FUCKING FOX!!!!!!    WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Phil says Christian Bale looked massive and intimidating in the Batsuit.But he doesn’t,does he?! In the Batsuit we know,he doesn’t.OK,I had a thought.Never mind! I will sound stupid!

    • Mattbrw08

      haha i have a feeling i know what you thought.  and yeah im glad you didnt say it :P

      • ;) Yeah,that was just a thought…The guy says next:as you’ve witnessed yourself…


      He meant “massive and intimidating” in person, not a new suit or nothing like that your’e thinking

      • Antrozous

        Yep, I read it like that as well.

      • Guest

        I have no problem if the suit doesn’t change.I like the suit in Batman Begins,though.We’ll find out when shooting from the 8th to the 11th happens!

  • Anonymous

    Meh, he looked way more massive and intimidating in the Batman Begins suit. Not a fan of the new suit tbh, his neck just looks too small and he doesn’t look as bat-like…kinda felt like they ditched the whole “theatricality and deception” theme when they introduced it in TDK

    • Guest

      Totaly Agree !

    • That’s why he’s gotta stick to the shadows, if they see him in the light he’ll be met with roaring laughter. In BB he was an imposing force. In TDK he got his ass kick by The Joker. I think they should mix and match, TDK cowl + BB suit ( they’re both made of rubber anyhow.) + TDK emblem.

      • Antrozous

        TDK emblem? Hell no, I pass, never liked it in the first place, Begins chest emblem was way better looking. Something like this would be awesome in terms of color and design:

        • Guest
          • Antrozous

            Yes I´ve seen before when you girst posted it. It has some interesting parts but overall it´s a bit too comic-like and without the right colours I can´t judge better but surely it will end up being a great Batman statue…

        • Dev1359

          holy crap that suit looks sick.

        • I like that. In hindsight I thought they just recycled the Batman Beyond emblem, But I agree, The BB emblem would look better. It looks more “streight from the comics”.

          • Guest

            It’s almost the same logo

  • LGJ

    Everyone is saying this film is going to be iconic, i have to adimit i didn’t really think that before but i am starting to believe. i also hope this film does run that 3 hours length like some have stated… with all the location imagery and Nolans imagination this will turn heads!

    • TDKR2012

      3 hour move, conclusion of an epic trilogy = OSCAR movie! it’s all right there!

  • TDKR2012

    “Know your limits Morgan Freeman”….

  • Bbuzzel

    To the editor of this or  whoever finds all the info, i think u should see this


      WTF, is this real?

      • Nananananana

        Romanian salt mine. There were rumours that they were going to film there

    • Batgirl

      That pictures are awesome, did someone confirmed the info already?

    • Dev

      i’ve search that pictures on google, is a salt mine, that’s not the batcave

      • h4v0k_528491

        they r filming there and using it as a batcave; u can look it up on google

        • Antrozous

          If the Batcave is anything like that huge circular pit they are showing in other sites I will be extremely disapointed because I´m not expecting such a huge change in the way the cave should look. 

          They can use whatever natural set they want to as long as they don´t go over the top with this…

      • Bbuzzel

        Yeaaa its a saltmine but I’m pretty sure its going to be used as a batcave!

    • Esteban Gutiérrez
  • Antrozous

    I remember that acident of his, it was right after The Dark Knight premiered in 2008…

    Anyway, Freeman looks pretty old in those pics compared to TDK. I just saw him in Unforgiven but that was two decades ago already; damn, time flies…

    • I just bought Unforgiven like two weeks ago. I don’t think there’s a Morgan Freeman film that wasn’t great.

      • Antrozous

        Well, to me WANTED was a piece of crap movie but nothing to do with Freeman´s performance of course.

  • bAne-luchalibre

    So Matt moved on to too bad, this site was the right place for the podcast

    • h4v0k_528491

      y didnt chris post an update yesterday? it said it was released september 1

      • Guest

        Why is Chris going to promote another site ? I listened to the Pod Cast and it was very good , he has a good Co Host representing for all us U.K Bat fans , but the problem with that site is the comment sections are dead , there is NO one there , seems to get more comments in one thread than that site has had in its exsistence , it seems Matts talents will fall on deaf ears ! Shame !

        • Bane-MATALO-MATALO

          yeah, that site sucks, no comments, no visits, i agree  totally shame
