Batman may actually occupy Wall Street

Illustration for article titled Batman may actually occupy Wall Street

Last week, we pondered what Batman's reaction to the Occupy Wall Street protests might amount to. Now, the L.A. Times reports that the Caped Crusader himself could be stopping by OWS. If the protest is still chugging along for the two weeks The Dark Knight Rises films in New York, that is:

[A]ccording to a person briefed on actors' schedules who requested anonymity because production details were being kept confidential, cast members have been told the shoot could include scenes shot at the Occupy Wall Street protests.


New York filming for The Dark Knight Rises kicks off October 29. Gotham City is perpetually embroiled in some sort of high-level malfeasance, so protestors aren't that much of a stretch. It remains to be seen whether Batman himself will stop by, an appearance which could drum up Radiohead-grade levels of pandemonium.
