Cillian Murphy will return as Jonathan Crane in The Dark Knight RisesThe Dark Knight Rises continues production in Los Angeles this week, and there are rumors that the Scarecrow has been spotted on set.

Shooting took place at L.A.'s Union Station on Wednesday, which doubled for a Gotham City courthouse. One of the scenes being shot features Gary Oldman's Jim Gordon and Marion Cotillard's Amanda Tate, who are forced to see a mysterious judge. Take a look at the description of this scene below, which reveals Cillian Murphy's return as Jonathan Crane a.k.a. Scarecrow.

It appears that exile means walking a dangerous frozen river on the outskirts of Gotham. Which would coincide with the LA River scene filmed with Gordon and his men tip toeing awkwardly in the leaked video.

Oh P.S.

Judge's identity: JONATHAN F#CKIN CRANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
