      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 ?

      So Gotham City will be in LA now instead of Chicago -it was in Chicago in the Dark Knight, right?

      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 ).

      More pics. Crew was nice enough to let me go through the gates and get close to the second Lambo.

      You actually thought they were filming a movie?

      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."

      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.
