Coming soon to Occupy Wall Street: Batman?

Whispers from the Dark Knight Rises set suggest that Christopher Nolan may shoot part of his third Batman film against the backdrop of the Occupy Wall Street protests. The production will rumble into New York on the 29th of October, bringing the caped crusader face to face with the thousands in Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park now in their second month of protest against the capitalist system. You know – the one that gets movies like the Dark Knight Rises made.

Some would fear a clash of ideals. Director Christopher Nolan apparently sees an opportunity, with the Times suggesting that the demonstrations could be used as a setting for scenes from the film.
