This weekend's release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 holds more for us than just a finale to the epic tale of Glasses Wizard: it turns out it has some Batman with it, too, as a "trustworthy source" has informed Dark Knight teaser, expect to be left suitably teased but disappointed that you didn't get to see Batman punch anyone out.

Anyway, while the teaser will likely withhold all the good stuff, Carnegie Mellon University is far more forthcoming with their Batman offerings. The college will serve as a Christopher Nolan's shooting location at the end of the month, and they've offered up the following summary of what sorts of scenes you can expect in the upcoming film. Please, do not read ahead if you are trying to remain in the dark regarding whether or not The Dark Knight Rises includes precision stunt driving. (It does.)

Scenes outside the SEI, which will be portrayed as a prison, will include an explosion, a prison break, precision stunt driving, gunfire, atmospheric smoke, and controlled pyrotechnic explosions.

Scenes outside the Fifth Ave. entrance of Mellon Institute include a standoff between two rivals that escalates into a riot. One character drives a motorcycle through the fourth floor lobby, out the front doors and down the steps onto Fifth Ave. Special effects include precision stunt driving, gunfire and atmospheric smoke.
