Dark Knight Rises Set Images and Other POSSIBLE SPOILERS

15 Comments

Christopher Nolan is doing his darnedest to keep as much of “The Dark Knight Rises” a secret as much as possible, but let’s face it, this is the age of the Internets and phone cameras that can give you as high a resolution as you want. So it’s no surprise that as the film begins shooting, lots of stuff are leaking out. As with everything else, there are POSSIBLE SPOILERS below, and you should avoid it like the plague if you do not wish to be spoiled — if these turn out to be true, that is. At this point? Anything’s game.

Starting off with ….

Batman-News and the “Dark Knight Rises” Facebook Community asks, is this the Lazarus Pit from the film’s recent India set? I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Yes. It would explain why certain characters in the Batverse are getting younger.

Another pic from the India set. Your guess is as good as mine what the below shows (by which I mean, I have no clue) — feel free to click to enlarge for more details. Perhaps it had something to do with this?

Eyewitnesses and crew members told us of a particular scene being filmed, where a bald-headed child wearing ragged clothes emerges from the well and pulls his hood over his head. From the conversations, we reckon this is a young Bane, emerging from a vat of Venom, trained by Pence’s Ra’s al Ghul. The years of addiction to Venom builds him to be a massive monster with amped up senses, intelligence and physical prowess.

The Times of India, meanwhile, has an article on “The Dark Knight Rises'” shoot in their fair country, and would seem to indicate that ol Ras Al Ghul, “killed” in the first Nolan Batman movie, will make a comeback via younger actor Josh Spence.

Incidentally, a green screen was created just outside the Fort. Nolan shot in front of the green screen and used the Fort as the backdrop. Sources say that this backdrop of the Fort has been used to establish that Batman is in an exotic location which is isolated too. However, this backdrop isn’t meant to be shown as India in the film. Back in the UK studios, this 30 ft x 30 ft green screen will be digitally modified to create the Lazarus Pit. For those not in the loop, a Lazarus Pit is used by Ra’s Al Ghul for gaining restorative powers. Scenes of Bale being carried into the pit and then jumping out of it were also canned. A couple of locals were cast as extras in the scenes that were shot in India.

Make of these what you will.

    Actually read somewhere that it may not be a Lazarus pit persay but a Venom pit, and that Bane is the way he is from massive exposure to it over his life.

    I don’t think is the Lazarus Pit. Doesn’t fit in the Nolanverse.

    Also the fact that we’ll be having a younger Ras Al Ghul doesn’t mean squad. Does everybody forgot that Al Ghul’s legacy through the centuries is passed from the head to a successor?.

    No Lazarus Pit, folks.

    I’m not happy about the prospect of either a Lazarus pit or a Venom infused Bane. Sure those are integral parts of the comics but both are not exactly Nolanverse fare. Then again Nolan seems to be throwing everything but the kitchen sink in this one.

      And he’s the only one I think could make it work. If Venom is just some natural steroid, much the way the fear toxin came from the blue flower, it’s very fesable. He’d be addicted to it, and thats why he’s now pumping it directly into his body or his body goes into withdrawal and it eats itself , making the muscles atrophy.

    It’s simple. Bane breaks Bruce’s back and then he get healed by Lazarus Pit, that’s why he “Rises”. Young Ra’s Al Ghul is just a prequel to the events, he will not rise from the dead, just introduce background for Bane, Ra’s was his mentor, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to win the fight against Bruce (plus venom injection helps to achieve that). Same as Batman Begins, first 40 mins was about background story. We did see Bruce’s parents after they died, right?… in the background story, same is with Young Ra’s Al Ghul.

    In the 52 limited series, week 6, Booster Gold enters Rip Hunter’s lab to find a chalkboard filled with cryptic clues on different aspects of the DC Universe. One of them was the clue, “The Lazarus Pit RISES”.

      Man, I hope your NOT right. lol… sorry but to get Batman broke and then magically healed because of a misterious Lazarus Pit is the equivalent of making Zod lift people with rays coming from his fingers.

      So far every single speculation has failed, so I think so far no one’s even near of what that pool might be. Maybe is just Ra’s jacuzzi or something, I dunno, jeje.

        falling from a skyscraper, landing on the back and don’t get hurt makes me guessing

    actually Ken Watanabe was the young Bane, bald and acted like a drug addict. Got resurrected in Lazarus Pit. So here you have the answer lol

    I want Black mask (is that his name) to be in here as well as clay 

    • GoClayface

      I think clay face and the riddler need to be in this one. Maybe Johnny depp as the riddler? He seems creepy enough to be a batman villain.
