‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Wayne Manor Photo

Director Christopher Nolan is currently shooting his Batman trilogy finale in Osterley Park, London.

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 and stars Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.

    @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.

    i lovethat the manor will be rebuilt since they hinted at it at the end of Batman Begins.

    @bruce-ha Well, if we're to be good little boys and girls and not ask questions.... movieweb/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.

  14. bruce_ha

    @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.

    4 years agoby @dan1Flag

  19. thedude-abides

    @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.

    @thedude-abides Verbally, I'm sure many asses will be chewed. If there is anything DDL does well, it's telling people off (see: Gangs of New York), and making it damn entertaining. The guy knows how to command an audience, and rightfully deserves being called an actor's actor. He's arresting to watch, something you can't say for many others.

  21. thedude-abides

    @dan1 I think you're right. There's no doubt he's going to be beyond awesome. Hopefully we'll get some There Will Be Blood moment's in there as well with DDL tearin' people some new ass holes.

    @thedude-abides I'm f*cking stoked about it. Whenever I think about it, I think about how great Liam Neeson was in Schindler's List, and I know Day-Lewis can take it to that level and beyond it. The fact that it will be under Spielberg's watch is no coincidence.

    @dan1 Man, he's gonna be great. But, personally, I think next year is Leo's year. Either way, I think those 2 will easily be the front runners.

  24. Dan

    @thedude-abides Hmm, non comic book movies or literature, those are some fine picks. All 3 of those will probably be solid. But Day-Lewis as Lincoln? Just give the man his damn Oscar now. Seriously. He already won it, and we know it.

    4 years agoby @dan1Flag

  25. thedude-abides

    @dan1 I'd have to go with either Lincoln or Cogan's Trade. I think J. Edgar is gonna be awesome as well.

    @thedude-abides What about you?

    4 years agoby @dan1Flag

  27. Dan

    @thedude-abides Lol, there's a loaded question. It really boils down to a 3 way battle between Avengers, TDKR, and The Hobbit. The Avengers, because we've been building towards that movie for several Marvel movies now. TDKR because for the obvious, it's the closer to Nolan's Batman trilogy, and will determine Nolan's ultimate legacy with his take on Batman. The Hobbit, because it's the prequel to Lord of the Rings, so my anticipation there should be obvious :)

    And Amazing Spider-Man would come after those.

    @bane5000 Did he say "brick for brick" or "brick by brick"? That in between word makes all the difference. If it was "by", then that denotes it doesn't have to look exactly the same.

    @dan1 Agreed. I'm all about wide angle shots. Is that your most anticipated film of 2012?
