Comingsoon.net has posted the first leaked set picture from the filming of The Dark Knight Rises in India and it’s lit up the Internet with speculation. The image shows a pit in the ground with green screen lining its bottom. Speculation is that it’s most likely a Lazarus Pit for the resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul, seeing as how they have actually cast a young Ra’s and that Talia is rumored to be a character in the movie. That this picture is from the India shoot also adds credibility to that theory as the Lazarus Pits were always in an exotic location such as that.
The other theory is that the pit will hold the venom that Bane uses to ‘roid out. But right now the evidence strongly tips the scales in the favor of the Ra’s and Lazarus Pit theory. If that is the case, it would be the first time anything magical or mythical has appeared on Nolan’s Batman movies, which up until this point have been grounded in reality.
