It's great to hear that we'll get to see the Batcave again in The Dark Knight Rises but it may not be that much of a surprise if a report from the Sony Studios set is to be believed.
A fan at Batman-News.com claims to have wandered around the new Batcave and says not much has changed.
“It’s half finished and pretty much looks like the same set we saw in Batman Begins . They’re still completing the quarry walls but the wooden manor foundations were all there in the corner. They may add more set dressing with equipment and such but don’t expect a radical redesign as most fanboys are expecting,” the report reads.
Hang on, you might be thinking, that still sounds very unfinished. So what did the construction guys have to say?
“Funny thing was I asked the construction guys if they were using the same blueprints/plans from Batman Begins to match continuity, they said, 'No'. But as the set resembled the cave from Begins and I’m a detail freak who knows the movies, (right down to the waterfall entrance where the tumbler flies through) while they may have had new blueprints I could see it was the same cave from seeing the foundation beams that were iconic from the first movie. Also the stage can hold water, they’ll fill it when the quarry wall work is finished and they pull all the rigging lights up to illuminate the set.”
To be honest, you won't see toys flying from TF 's pram if the Batcave happens to look a bit familiar.
Especially as we've got this snippet of a police chase to keep our Bat-spirits up.
Unless this is really a remake of The Blues Brothers , in which case where's our log-in to Blues-Brothers-news.com? We've got some bile to spew!
