Batman Sequel Explosion Rocks Londoners
Londoners were recently sent into a panic when they heard a large explosion on Thursday night. They thought that terrorists had bombed a nearby defunct electricity plant. Calls came in from residents to the emergency services team, who assured them that the explosion was really for the upcoming Batman film.
"The Dark Night" is shooting in London and the explosion was part of what is thought to be the opening sequence of the film. The explosion generated a 200 foot fireball, as well as columns of smoke. It is said that it could be seen for miles around the city.
