Catwoman stunt goes wrong on ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ set

Camera flattened by stuntworker on Batpod

A stunt on the set of the latest Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, has gone haywire resulting in an expensive IMAX camera being totalled.

During filming outside the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, a stuntwoman dressed as Catwoman was seen careening into a camera. Video of the incident can be seen here.

The footage shows a huge fight scene outside the University before Catwoman drives down the steps riding what appears to be Batman’s Batpod.

No one was hurt during the accident.

In related news, Anne Hathaway has defended criticism of the Catwoman costume, after some fans voiced negative opinions about the outfit.

Speaking to MTV News, the actress said:

What I am happy to say is, if you don’t like the photo, you only see about a 10th of what that suit can do. And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.

The Dark Knight Rises is due for UK release on July 20, 2012.
