Those snoopy spies on the sets of The Dark Knight Rises are back with more exciting new material this week, with on-set looks at the Batwing, or possibly the Batcopter, in action. Actually, it looks more like a tiny harrier jet, floating barely above the Gotham City streets. Or – Obscurity Ho! – like "The Great and Powerful Turtle" from George R. R. Martin's Wild Cards series. Thanks go to Hollywood Reporter for the heads up.

As always this behind the scenes footage does not reflect Nolan's creative intentions, cinematography or the inevitable CG touch ups that will accompany them in the finished product. It's not a look at The Dark Knight Rises, just a look at one of Batman's nifty new toys. Enjoy!
