Downtown LA Morphs into Gotham City in 'The Dark Knight Rises'

Warner Bros.

When The Dark Knight Rises is released on July 20, some locations may look very recognizable to Angelenos.

The filmmakers involved on the latest Batman installment released production notes today that promise appearances by some of the city’s local landmarks.

Some of the sites used include the L.A. Convention Center, which acts as the Applied Science Division of Wayne Enterprises; Union Station, which becomes a makeshift courtroom and a building on South Spring Street which morphs into the trading floor of the stock exchange.

Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight sequel stars Christian Bale, Liam Neeson, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Caine.
