Video: Steelers’ Hines Ward in Dark Knight Rises Trailer

This is going to be epic. The theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, filmed in Pittsburgh, hit the Internet early this week. It’s the first footage we’ve seen from the filming that took place at Heinz Field starring Hines Ward and many other Steelers. (The full list is Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Willie Colon, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Wallace, Heath Miller, Aaron Smith, Ryan Clark, Troy Polamalu, James Farrior and Casey Hampton.)

Ward is prominently featured in the trailer, as is Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl. Heinz Field looks pretty freakin’ awesome too, though the field explosion effects leave a little to be desired. 

Here’s the video (could get taken down at any time):

Here are some stills from the trailer featuring a few familar faces:
