INT. GROUND LEVEL/ALMIGHTY HUGE HANGER â€“ DAY
Weâ€™re shown around the set of â€˜The Dark Knightâ€™ and my goodness, this is exactly what being part of the movie business is all about. This is precisely a movie-magic moment, churning the wow-factor emotion inside of me as I cast my eyes onto a street scene. I see the exterior of Arkham Asylum and wonder who the hell could be inside, as I pace around it, touching the steps and not expecting it to feel like a fibreglass material at all, but the brick touch it is meant to be. I see a bank and another building charred and burnt.
WB: This was blown up yesterday. Said my Warner pal, gesturing toward the charred exterior of another building, as I trudge my feet upon the wet concrete floor, which obviously took a hosing down after it was fired-up.
The buildings were huge and looked real enough, making the hanger look even larger still. As we walk, we swop family banter and other film work weâ€™re both working on. I suggest various London pub haunts and she suggests I look at what I would call â€˜The Bat Bikeâ€™.
Bowdrie: And when do we get to have a go on this? I ask, releasing my must do thoughts.
The designer informs that the wheels to this beast are two of the wheels from the previous â€˜Batman Beginsâ€™ Bat Mobile and the rider has to lie down upon it.
Bowdrie: Has Christian ridden this?
Iâ€™m told he has had a go in a field, but it wasnâ€™t a good idea after that. This looks like itâ€™ll be the main vehicle Batman will be using in â€˜The Dark Knightâ€™.
