You can check out the video of Bale below (sorry, not the best quality), with the actor thanking the city of Pittsburgh for their generosity.

"Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit and hospitality ahead of time, and we'll try and stay out of your hair as much as possible and hopefully leave with good memories for everybody," said Bale.

Bale also quipped about donning the suit and on some action taking place.

"Well, I hope that all of you guys are going to feel cooler 'cause of the fake snow, I certainly won't be -- stuck in that rubber suit all the time," said Bale. "I've never been to Pittsburgh before. There will be fighting on the streets a great deal." 

Director Christopher Nolan also made some comments, particulary complimenting the the city of Pittsburgh.

"I think the architecture of this city is a very beautiful city on a very impressive scale and yet one which has a community that hasn't lost its human scale. Those are two elements that are extremely hard to find and incredibly valuable to a production like 'The Dark Knight Rises,' where we're really looking to have the architecture of a major American city somewhat disrupted by what we're going to do," said Nolan.

Thanks to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for the additional info.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
