Dark Knight Rises up with New Gotham City

There's a new Gotham City, Bat-fans. The Dark Knight Rises has finalized plans to shoot in Pittsburgh this summer.

In a statement to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, TDKR director Christopher Nolan said, "Pittsburgh is a beautiful city. ... We have been able to find everything we were looking for here, and I am excited to spend the summer in Pittsburgh with our final installment of Batman."

Meanwhile, Batman-on-Film came across a few more Bat-tidbits. First, Oscar winner Marion Cotillard appears to have confirmed her reported role in The Dark Knight Rises, informing The Independent, "I have a project for the summer. Different thing that I don't wanna talk about." Sounds pretty batty to us.

BoF also says Nolan is rumored to have scouted Kedleston Hall, a lavish mansion from the 1760s located in Derbyshire, England. Could this be the new Wayne Manor? We shall see.

The Dark Knight Rises begins filming in May.
