'The Dark Knight Rises' Photos from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh

Director Christopher Nolan is filming a football scene this Saturday with Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and other teammates in attendance.
The Dark Knight Rises is currently shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, working towards a July 20, 2012 release date. The crew is getting ready for tomorrow's shoot in the home of NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field, which will also feature members of the Steelers team including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. A new set of photos have been released which show how Heinz Field has been transformed into the home stadium of the Gotham Rogues. Take a look at these new photos below, plus read on for more information on The Dark Knight Rises' Pittsburgh production.

By request, these photos have been removed.



Saturday's shoot at Heinz Field will feature over a dozen Steelers players as extras, with thousands of other extras being recruited to fill the stands. The scenes being shot tomorrow are of a high school football game featuring the Gotham Rogues. Here's what Ben Roethlisberger had to say about the shoot.

"From what I've heard, it's going to be like a pre-game, warming-up type thing. I don't know the whole concept. There's a Gotham team, a football game. We'll be wearing uniforms. It will be fun."


Other Steelers players participating in the shoot are Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Maurkice Pouncey, Willie Colon, Mike Wallace, Heath Miller, Aaron Smith, Ryan Clark, James Farrior and Casey Hampton. Executive producer Thomas Tull is also a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers ownership group, and is said to be instrumental in bringing the production to Pittsburgh.

    It's not supposed to be a high school team, it's Gotham's pro team. The writer and anyone who thought that was accurate is an idiot. How many high school teams play in a stadium and have fans loaded with shirts, foam hats, foam guns, etc in the stands. Seriously, try using your brains people. It might hurt at first, but you'll get used to it...

    @ghostman Good call, I certainly didn't notice it. When you said earthquake, my mind shifted to 1998-99 and the earthquake that turned Gotham into No Man's Land.

    @ejk1 well, @bawnian-dexeus mentioned something getting 'crumbled' and if you look at pictures 2 and 3, you'll notice it looks like the ground shifted and broke apart.

    My question is, what's going to cause an earthquake in Gotham? some kind of explosion? whatever it is, I'm sure Nolan has some surprise up his sleeve :)

    @highcaliberinc I doubt we'll be seeing them that up close to make the discernible difference, but you do have a fair point.

    If Batman doesn't make a touchdown, I will have lost all faith in Nolan.

    @superman81 not sure if this is true (hope it's not) but i heard that Roethlisberger will help Batman in a dangerous situation like rescue him from the earthquake or something.

    1. hate the steelers 2. none of them look like teenagers 3. why not give this once in a lifetime opportunity to actual high school football players and let them get some shine. the steelers already have fame.

    if its supposed to be a high school football game...isnt it quite unrealistic to believe Rothlisberger and the rest of the steelers as 17 and 18 year olds ?? even if they are extras, youll still be able to see the difference between NFLers and what should be high schoolers. not liking this news
