      Unfortunately, your spy photographer takes crappy pictures with a cellphone camera and there are dozens of people outside whose job it is to simply run around blocking cameras. Despite these obstacles, here's what I got.











      Batman himself! Batman has good taste (shot these through the front door of the office building which was left unguarded until they noticed me. Then I had to shoot around the asses of those trying to block me ).

      Buy a tripod lawyer man and inform them that YOU have a permit to film in that location. Then DEMAND to see their permit.
      how come a transvestite donkey witch is next to you and why is it wearing a dress?

      My response to "No pictures" was either an "I understand" or "I definitely agree." I told one woman that I was just using my cell phone sideways. After a coworker told another guy that their no-picture rules were not enforceable, he agreed and said that his job was to use his body to block the camera. Then I asked to take a picture of him blocking and he refused . Shouldn't he be fired for not doing his job ?

      What you need is a photographer blocker blocker. Don't you have any interns laying around?

      It's still "Chicago" . Half the extra cars have Gotham plates and the others have Illinois plates. Most people don't realize this, but Downtown LA stands in for most movies shot in "NYC" or, in this case, Chicago. They're filming almost daily here and I have tons of pics of NYC-livery police cars, etc.

      There were at least five 300s with Gotham plates. The scene is some sort of red carpet event, with the livery cars pulling up and pulling away and the Lambo between them. When Batman gets out, he's mobbed by papparazi (or, that's what it looked like, at least, as I didn't get a chance to review the script ).

      I think they were doing this last night at the LA Times building (about 6 blocks from the Biltmore). There was a banner promoting a Mercedes Benz fashion show, and I think it was part of the shoot.

      Vad thanks also for the closeup pic of the Gotham license plate. My buddy loves finding unique plates and he especially likes getting pics of all the ones on picture cars around here. When the clap-clap Beetle ad was filmed here in August we saw that the plates were issued from "The Spirit State."

      you work next door to the Biltmore? i've had many a good romp in that hotel before. their ballroom reminds me of the one in the shining.

      I can't believe you gave the entire plot of the movie away. At least I won't have to go see it when it comes out.

      Is it too much to ask for you dumb little monkeys to actually read the prior posts in the thread, and attempt to use some semblance of punctuation, capitalization, and general friggin grammar?
      Yes, this is mostly directed at the MKIV forum.

      Hi neighbor

      Earlier this week... around 6:45am, I saw the crazy black motorcycle thing (that catwoman drives) up on Hope Street behind my building. They had pulled it out of a truck and parked it on the street. Once people started gathering, they quickly put it away. I wasn't able to take a pic.... dammit... sorry!
