Tom Hardy on leaked “Dark Knight Rises” photos, footage

By Sean O’Connell Are Batman fans concerned by the amount of leaked footage Christopher Nolan is allowing to flow out of his “Dark Knight Rises” set in Pittsburgh?

So far, we’ve see photos and video (video, for crying out loud!!) of Catwoman, Bane, Batman’s new flying vehicle, a football scene, explosions on the streets of Gotham, and so much more.

You might be thinking you’ve seen the entire movie, which isn’t due in theaters until next July. Which is why comments made by Tom Hardy, who plays Bane in the blockbuster, are encouraging.

Hardy tells Access Hollywood while promoting his latest film “Warrior,” that fans aren’t really seeing a sliver of what’s to come.

“I think there’s a certain inevitability if you’re going to shoot in the middle of the street — that it’s very hard to block off the entire street from people taking photographs,” Hardy said. “But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be anything like the film. You have people taking photographs from a distance of what’s going on on the ground. It bears very little resemblance to what’s going on.”

Some fans even suggest that Nolan’s filming some public scenes that have no prayer of making the final film, in an effort to throw publicity hounds off of his scent. But that’s an expensive “trick” for any filmmaker to pull, so I’m guessing what we’ve seen from Pittsburgh will be seen in “The Dark Knight Rises” … just in context.
