The new Batman movie - The Dark Knight Rises - has begun filming in Pittsburgh and, along with recognition, the film is bringing economic benefits to the city. In a recent Mail Online article - all the way from the UK - the amount of new jobs and tourism prospects are considered in light of the blockbuster choosing filming Pittsburgh to film. Hundreds of new jobs are now available, as Mayor Luke Ravenstahl told CBS Pittsburgh: "We talk about job creation, this will create hundreds if not thousands of local jobs. It's going to be great for the economy and the exposure that Pittsburgh's going to receive will be significant."
