Guess Where Dark Knight Rises Is Shooting?

Pittsburgh! Said Christopher Nolan yesterday: "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." Over the years, lots of places have laid claim to being the real-world parallel for Gotham City, with Nolan's recent contributions to the Batman canon shifting the inspiration from New York to Chicago. Now, Gotham is Pittsburgh. Congratulations, Pittsburgh! You are no longer considered as just a stand in for a post-apocalyptic wasteland. [Variety]
