The Dark Knight Rises is currently shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and someone managed to catch the first glimpse of Batman (Christian Bale) fighting Bane (Tom Hardy) on the steps of the building while hundreds of extras / stunt men fight against one another. This footage also gives us the first look at  Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a policeman.

All this footage is rather amateur but it’s actually come out really well. Have a look at the video below which comes to us via MSN.

The Dark Knight Rises is set for release in 20th July, 2012 and stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Josh Pence, and Marion Cotillard.

If you missed the teaser trailer for the movie, you can also catch it here.
