THE TRAILER FOR the highly-anticipated final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, shows the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Heinz Field being swallowed up.

As well as having the scene filmed at their stadium, there are also cameo appearances from the likes of  wide receiver Hines Ward, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and former coach Bill Cowher, in the movie.

Apparently they’re on some XFL franken-team called the Gotham Rogues.

The clip features Ward running toward the endzone while the field explodes and gobbles up defenders behind him.

It looks pretty cool, but Hines Ward out-running an NFL-caliber defensive back at age 35 might be the most unrealistic plot point in the history of cinema.

Here’s the trailer (the Ward bit comes at 1:18 or so):
