Batman Won’t Be Occupying Wall Street After All


MTV may be documenting (or exploiting, or celebrating, or whatever) Occupy Wall Street in an upcoming True Life documentary, but don’t expect to see Zuccotti Park lighting up the big screen in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The production will begin shooting in New York before the end of the month, and it was reported last week that the film’s actors were being prepped for possible scenes at the demonstration. But Entertainment Weekly has just gotten word from Warner Bros. that dropping in on democracy in action is not actually part of Nolan’s plan. This all makes a certain kind of sense to us — heroic as he may be, if Bruce Wayne isn’t part of the 1%, we don’t know who is.
