I just finished interviewing “A Mighty Heart” director Michael Winterbottom to find that my correspondent, Phil Tadros of MetroProper, has quickly delivered on my request.

Because I was downtown and the coffee shop he owns (Dollop) is right where “The Dark Knight” filmed yesterday and all day today, I asked him to take a few pictures of the action. He did better.

Here’s some pre-action, sneak-peak video to give you a sense of the scene.

By the way, the “Rory’s First Kiss” you see referenced in this video is the fake working title for “The Dark Knight”. The working title is “Batman Begins 2”.

5:03 p.m. update: I asked Phil for set footage. Because he knows friends everywhere, he went into a nearby apartment for a glimpse into what it looks like and the changes being made to the surrounding area.
