Batwing Suffers Major Accident On Set of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!

There has been another major accident on the Pittsburgh set of The Dark Knight Rises. While shooting this Saturday, August 13, the Batwing, a new air vehicle that will be seen in the movie, went off course during filming and hit a huge street lamp, which demolished the entire right side of the craft. According to reports, Christopher Nolan only has one Batwing to work with. It took a large crew more than an hour to fix the damage done to the Batwing, and they reshot the same scene a second time without the crash. No actors or IMAX cameras were hurt in this incident. Check out the damage in the pics below.

The Dark Knight Rises was released July 20th, 2012.

        @kingbrady lol detecting sarcasm isn't as easy if it isn't blatant online.

        It's all the public filming they have to do that is allowing so much fan-filming. They can't really do much about that.

        I just, don't watch any of the videos and what not. But even knowing all of this stuff is getting out, I'm still just as damn excited to see it as I was when The Dark Knight's credits rolled.

                  @superman81 Picture this: whatever is going on in the scene they're filming would take place during a cloudy snowy day with fairly visible lighting (put it simpler terms, evening time) and that's the time of day this will take place. how does that sound?

                    @ghostman I agree with you. It would be cool. But they have it snowing and its going to be cloudy looking if not full om night time. So it won't be the full on sunny daytime look some people keep bringing up.

                      @superman81 I'd actually prefer this to be a day shot, rather than a night shot on film. I know TDK had a lot of day shots in it, and while filming BB, they shot film during the day and of course, majority of the first film is taken place during the night. But this scene would look awesome during the day.

                                  I wish I could stop looking at these videos and pictures. I almost ruined TDK for myself, I can't ruin TDKR either!
