Will The Dark Knight Returns Open With A Bit Of Location Scouting?

I would have assumed that the first scene of The Dark Knight Rises would be something action packed, but I suppose there’s no reason it couldn’t be something more dramatic. Or maybe even something lyrical…

(I will, however, bet you my house* that it’s going to be presented in the big, square IMAX format.)

The following might be the most miniscule Batspoiler ever, so do proceed with a suitably tiny dose of caution. Which is to say: full steam ahead.

As per Wales Online (found via Latino Review) the opening scenes of the film will likely depict Bruce’s discovery of the Batcave.

A team led by Batman director Christopher Nolan spent two days filming on National Trust land at Henrhyd Waterfall in the Neath Valley.

One insider who witnessed the filming said: “They were there for a couple of days just a few weeks ago. I understand it’s going to be used in the opening sequence of the film, as Batman discovers the Batcave. But we’ll have to wait and see.”

The Henrhyd Falls do seem to have many of the characteristics suited to this particular crepuscular psychopath’s HQ, but how he’ll be getting his Tumbler in and out is anybody’s guess. Maybe that’s why he’s trading up to that… other thing. Whatever it is.

*I rent, but I’m that confident.
