Fan filmed first glimpse of Bale and Hathaway on set

Footage from the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, has hit the internet.

The images, courtesy of YouTube uploader, ‘Batman Manor’, comes from Wollaton Hall, doubling as Wayne Manor.

In the video (below) you can make out Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway having a chinwag, as a yellow cab waits outside the manor.

Gotham seems to be suffering a pretty torrential downpour, which Bale, ever the gentleman, does his best to cover Hathaway from, when the filming stops.

You can also make out director Christopher Nolan, in his trademark coat, overseeing the action.

Last week (June 20), a trailer for The Dark Knight was revealed as a hoax.

For the latest Batman film Christian Bale will reprise his dual role as Batman/Bruce Wayne. He will be re-joined by Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

Anne Hathaway and Tom Hardy join the cast as Selina Kyle and Bane.

The Dark Knight Rises is due to be released on July 20 next year.
