WPXI Reporter and Batman

In case you haven’t heard, Pittsburgh is the filming location for “The Dark Knight Rises” and many are trying to get in on the action. If you find yourself getting married in the future, you may want to plan your wedding in a place where a movie is being filmed!

WPXI-TV (11) sports anchor Rich Walsh was married over the weekend at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Oakland and had desired to take pictures on the steps of the Mellon Institute nearby. Around the corner, though, crews were filming parts of the movie and various pieces of equipment and props were scattered about – including the Batmobile. Arrangements had been made with the film crew before the wedding to allow for 15 minutes of photos as desired. Walsh told the Post-Gazette that they attempted to stand for one photo with the Batmobile in the background but the videographer on hand afforded them the opportunity to get up close and personal with the storied vehicle.
