Confirming the rumor from earlier this summer, NJ.com reports that The Dark Knight Rises will shoot in Newark, New Jersey on November 3rd and 4th.

One day of the shoot is said to involve City Hall with a press release warning of “extensive traffic delays in the area around City Hall and Downtown Newark along McCarter Highway, Market Street, Raymond Boulevard, Broad Street, Mulberry Street, Halsey Street, Washington Street, and University Avenue, due to street closures and the re-routing of buses.”
