TDKR has already blown through Pittsburgh and LA. If you are chosen, you can expect some serious action sequences like (SPOILER?) this mega fight between Batman and Bane and the entire city of Pittsburgh. Or perhaps you'll have to dodge this Batwing type device (though production should be careful where they point that thing or Ray Kelly will just shoot it down).
