‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Wayne Manor Photo

Director Christopher Nolan is still in the early stages of shooting his climatic bat-finale The Dark Knight Rises in London, and the set pictures we've seen so far have been ho-hum at best. Unlike The Amazing Spider-Man, we are not being bombarded by photos of our hero in action. Instead, we are being treated to mundane snapshots of buildings and cars. Today, we get an image from Osterley Park, where Christopher Nolan is using the Osterley Park mansion as a double for Wayne Manor. Check it out below.

By request, these photos have been removed.

This note from a worker at Osterley Park accompanied the photograph.

"Osterley Park is the inside of the Wayne Manor. That's right 3 rooms - dining room, and study - we forgot to ask what the 3rd room was - it was mentioned the study has a secret exit that will lead to the Batcave. Technically we are guaranteed sighting of Alfred (Michael Caine), Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale), I think Anne Hathaway, as she's likely to be having dinner with Bruce. There is a secret door in the study from which Wayne will escape."

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

      @ejk1 Great point. The academy certainly does love to "spread the love around," but I actually said I thought Leo was gonna win :P I do think DDL will be nominated, though.

        ok im glad they made it clear that this building will be used for the interior shots of the mansion, and hope they use the same building from Begins as the exterior shots of Wayne Manor

          @dan1 I feel that Tom was more impressive, considering that he was on-screen by himself for more than an hour. But it was close, which justified the Academy's decision to go with Crowe. If DDL can't really separate himself from the pack, he will probably be nipped at the finish line.

            @ejk1 Probably bolstering Leo DiCaprio's chances then with J. Edgar. When you say Tom was robbed in 2000 by Russell Crowe, you meant Cast Away versus Gladiator, right? That'd be a tough one for me to pick, as I really enjoyed both performances.

              @thedude-abides@dan1 Not that I disagree with your sentiments regarding DDL, but I feel compelled to caution you about his Oscar chances for the rest of his career. There are many unwritten laws in Hollywood, and one such law is the following: No actor will ever surpass Spencer Tracy's two Best Actor awards. Tracy won in back to back years for Boystown and Captains Courageous in 1937-38. SInce then, actors have been allowed to tie, but never surpass that mark. Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, and Daniel Day-Lewis all have two Best Actor awards. Jack and Tom have both been nominated since but have not won. Furthermore, it's my opinion that Tom was robbed in 2000 when he lost to Russell Crowe; not to mention the fact that Tom was not even nominated for Apollo 13 in 1995. This "law" now stares DDL in the face. While I believe that he will give a worthy performance, he may have to deliver a Secratariat in the Belmont Stakes performance to win. In other words, it can't be close, because if it is, the voters are more than likely to give it to the other guy.

                      @dan1 Yeah, i doubt Nolan would give them minor roles in the movie. They'll be part of the story just as much as they were involved with the story in Inception, i'm sure of this.

                            @bruce-ha Well, if we're to be good little boys and girls and not ask questions.... site_name/news/the-dark-knight-rises-confirms-joseph-gordon-levitt-as-beat-cop-john-blake

                            That story indicates he's just a beat cop. Now knowing Nolan, who knows. That may all be a smoke screen for both JGL's and Cotillard's true roles.

                              @dan1 Yeah you're right about that. I'm still wondering who Gordon Levitt will be portraying. This will probably the biggest movie of this century if he makes it right. That Bane picture suggests just that.

                                  "Rebuild it. Just the way it was, brick for brick."- Okay, looked that line up. He did say brick for brick. Hmmm..... :P

                                        @thedude-abides It's an exciting time in his career. Where those 3 other guys you just named off, Pacino, Brando, and DeNiro went to the wayside after their high points, and did a bunch of less memorable (and sometimes downright craptastic) movies, it seems every time DDL does a flick, everyone gloats over his greatness, because he completely brings the thunder each time. From Last of the Mohicans to Gangs to There Will be Blood.

                                          @dan1 Agreed. I personally think his performance in There Will Be Blood is the best performance of all time right up there with Pacino's Scarface, Brando's Waterfront, and De Niro's Raging Bull.
