    I finally got around to taking a photo of these. My dad and I were in the Stadium scene for The Dark Knight Rises, filmed at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA. We were allowed to make signs to hold, so this is mine. We were also given a "treat bag" that had snacks, sunscreen, and one of these yellow bandannas. Since this is Pittsburgh, most people waved them like "Terrible Towels". This is my set pass (I used the meal tickets). The stuff in the bag is fake snow, gathered on Smithfield St. The scene being filmed was three stolen Tumblers escorting a military truck carrying a "device", and being pursued by the Batwing.

    Very cool to be an extra for the last in the series of Nolan's Bat films. Did you get a shirt as well? Also, did the bandana have the Rogues logo?

    Unfortunately, we were seated in the middle of a section, and there weren't any shirts thrown within 20 rows of us. The crowd was not happy with the distribution- some sections got tons of stuff (I saw two kids with 3 shirts each!), others got nothing.
    The bandannas look like motel napkins- fairly thin material, no logo. I got a bunch of them, though- people were just leaving them behind.
    We were told multiple times that no cameras were permitted, so I left mine at home, but I should have taken it- no one cared if you took a photo. It was great to see how long it really takes to make this kind of film- we were there for 13 hours, filming a winter scene in August, that will probably be less than 5 minutes on screen. Got to see Nolan, and Tom Hardy. Also learned that our Mayor really can kick- he plays the kicker for the Rapid City Monuments!

    The section behind the goal posts was all paid extras, so they got the good stuff. Most of them were given a shirt, and I guess that's where the logo bandannas were. Most of the other stuff was fan-made, and some of it was pretty good!
    Amazing- over 1800 photos, and I'm not in one of them.
