10 Things You Didn't Know About the Dark Knight Rises

"The Dark Knight Rises" is the most highly anticipated movie of the summer.  TGATP lets you in on 10 things you didn't know about the film.

1. This is the first time a director has completed a Batman trilogy but not a superhero one.  Sam Raimi holds that distinction for his direction of the three Spidey films.

2. Aaron Eckhart refused to accept the death of his character Harvey Dent but director Nolan had other ideas.  Eckhart asked to return as Dent/Two-Faced but was, unfortunately, not resurrected.  His death is a crucial plot development for part three.

3. Ryan Gosling,  Mark Ruffalo, and Nolan's Inception star, Leonardo Di Caprio were all considered for the role of the courageous cop, John Blake.

4. For the first time, three separate cities provided locations and backdrops for Gotham City, with scenes filmed in Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, and the real Gotham - New York City.

5. Nearly half of "The Dark Knight Rises" was shot on IMAX large-format cameras, utilizing ultra resolution film.  Nolan states, "We got great results with the IMAX cameras on the last film.  I appreciate what if offers from the technical side, but I'm most interested in what it can give me as a storytelling tool.  How can it help me pull the audience deeper into this world?  IMAX provides the broadest possible canvas, creating the most immersive experience."
