The very first set images from The Dark Knight Rises' on-location shoot in Jodhpur, India have arrived. These images, which show the crew setting up a vast outdoor green screen, are rumored to be The Lazarus Pit, which will appear in Christopher Nolan's trilogy ending sequel. Take a look at the images below.
By request, these photos have been removed.
According to the DC Comics Universe, the Lazarus Pit is a "mythical vat of arcane chemicals first discovered by Ra's al Ghul as a cure for the dying son of a sultan he worked for. The Pit had a terrible side effect, however; it turned the Prince temporarily insane, leading to him killing the doctor's wife. After being blamed for the murder, the man who would become Ra's Al Ghul was buried in the desert. He was rescued by a tribe and a boy named Huew. After this, he used the Lazarus Pit to save himself, and vowed to avenge his wife. The doctor gave himself the title Ra's al Ghul - The Demon's Head."
It is not known how The Lazarus Pit will play into the plot of The Dark Knight Rises.
