Is this the first set shot from Dark Knight Rises?

Arkham Asylum image leaked

No matter how much of a tight grip Christopher Nolan attempts to keep on his Dark Knight Rises, massive interest in the director's third Batman film is going to make it difficult for him to keep tabs on everything that goes on.

Which could explain the above photo, apparently leaked from the in-production set of Rises, and shows off the front of famous insane asylum Arkham.

Though the authenticity of the image is still being confirmed, the person who provided the photo apparently has a “good mate” working on the Cardington set.

Could this simply be left over from the Nolan’s other two Batman films? Either way, it’s got us desperate for the film to start rolling in May, when no end of genuine photos are sure to hit the web.

The Dark Knight Rises opens 20 July, 2012.

Insane? Or awesome? What do you think of the photo? Drop us a comment below...

      According to this is the same set used as Batman Begins and has been standing since 2005 and is not necessarily an new set photo.

      I've said it before - perfect prologue to the film would be to have someone (whoever the main villain turns out to be) visiting the Joker in arkham.

      I can see Cardington hangers from where I work. Its pretty cool to look over and think 'They're filming the new Batman film over there'

      Filming doesn't start for ten weeks, Bale is shooting another movie at the moment.

      @ Ali748 - The shooting may not start for ten weeks and Bale may be shooting another movie, but the sets will be getting designed and built now in preparation for the shooting taking place.
