In my review of The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray boxset I mentioned how secretive Christopher Nolan was with the ending of The Dark Knight Rises. Another clip from the boxset’s bonus disc has come online and it details exactly what Nolan did to keep things under wraps.
In the funeral scene, Christopher Nolan knew that the tombstone couldn’t say “Bruce Wayne” so they put a fake name and then changed it with CGI later on. It’s a good thing they did, because Batman News was sent exclusive images of that set back in June 2011. They even went as far as having Christian Bale on set that day and shot the scene with him in it, which Nolan said really confused Michael Caine. What was Bruce Wayne doing at his own funeral?
