Dark Knight Rises Looks Unrealistic

If you haven't seen the trailer for Dark Knight Rises, please watch the video below. While the film certainly looks cool, I can't get past two portions of the trailer that seem completely unrealistic.

1. Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl kicking for a professional football team (1:08 mark).

2. Hines Ward returning a kick-off for a touchdown (1:21). He hasn’t returned a kick-off since 2000!



I'm not sure how I can even see this movie now. Maybe I'll see something more believable like Matt Damon buying and operating a zoo where Scarlett Johansson works or singing and dancing chipmunks.


Deadspin also has some great analysis of The Dark Knight Rises football scenes.

GFD - I'm a huge Ward fan, but I think his star power is reserved for the small screen, rather than the big screen!
