Several notable film/Batman fan sites were recently sent packages from The Dark Knight Rises marketing campaign that contained both a t-shirt and a unique map of Gotham City. The organized map purports to show all of the locations that Bane and his mercenaries will strike in their attempt to disrupt the city.
A big special thanks goes out to the folks over at Comic Book Movie who took the time to scan the following map for our inspection.
From what we can tell, it looks like Bane’s first attack will be at the Gotham City sports arena (circled in the lower left hand corner). This is most likely the scene that we saw being filmed in Pittsburgh back in August. As his strikes head further in and wrap around the city, it looks like the final strike is planned to hit the Wall Street district with 2-3 rally points fixed between there and the docks. Perhaps this is where the hundreds of extras fit in when The Dark Knight Rises was filming in downtown New York City.
Can you pick up on any other clues from the map? Write your observations below in the comments section!
Oh yes, and here is a photo of the t-shirt that was included.
