The Batwing soars over Los Angeles for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (video)

This is pretty cool. The Batwing was filmed this weekend flying high above buildings in Los Angeles. How did Christopher Nolan manage to make this as real as possible? It was being carried by a helicopter! It’s unclear if they were just transporting the Batwing to a roof, or if they were simulating it flying, but either way this is a cool set video to check out. Don’t worry… no spoilers here!

On a related note, I’ve been notified that the “Batwing” is being called the “Bat” by people working on the production of The Dark Knight Rises. Hopefully Warner Bros. will release an official photo with an official name soon.
