When it rains it pours. Each time that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ moves to a new filming location, the internet is deluged with new photos and videos for days before the movie drops off of the radar again. This time, the third part of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is filming in New York City and Newark, New Jersey.
Until now, we’ve seen Gotham City cops and Bane’s goons going at it and a few photos of Bane and the Caped Crusader. But today, we hit pay-dirt as we get actual video of the Dark Knight and Bane going head to head in the chaos. As an added bonus, Catwoman arrives on the scene atop the Batpod. It’s hard to tell but it is possible that this filming is part of the same scene that we saw some time ago with Catwoman.

Batman vs Bane amidst the chaos:
Catwoman shows up:
Catwoman arrives on the scene to provide back up and conflicted emotions for Batman.
Catwoman looks disgusted that she had to help save the city instead of ripping off mobsters.
Tumblers arrive and explode:

Batman saves the day by giving Bane that hug that he so desperately needed. Bane is so happy he offers to share a cold beverage with Batman.
Bats says “No thanks, Bane. I always keep my own drink handy in my utility belt.”
“That’s okay. I couldn’t drink with this ridiculous mask on anyway. Hahahahahaha!”
