On top of that, you can see Marion Cotillard clear as day, and a goddamn married couple just walking up to the set and posing for pictures with The Batmobile.
I’m almost afraid to see more photos because I’m pretty sure they’ll just be Christopher Nolan handing out copies of the script at a Pirates game. “On page 67, you learn Joseph Gordon-Levitt is really Dick Grayson. We film that scene in the strip district Tuesday at 10. Bring a camera!”

The host of Anderson Cooper 360° in CNN said: “I was sitting in a movie theater over the weekend and there was a preview of [Vince Vaughn’s new] movie, and in it, the actor said, ‘that’s so gay,’ and I was shocked that not only that they put it in the movie, but that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it. I just find those words, those terms… we’ve got to do something to make those words unacceptable cause those words are hurting kids.”
He added: “Someone else I talked to recently said that the words people use and the things people say about other kids online, it enters into their internal dialogue. When you’re a kid, it can change the way you see yourself and the way you think about yourself – the worth that you give to yourself. I think we really need to focus on what language we’re using and how we’re treating these kids.”
