Troy Polamalu & other Steeler players to appear in new Batman film /

A number of star players on the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers will take the field as extras in Christopher Nolan's epic caped crusader finale, in a scene at their home stadium, Heinz Field. The film is using Pittsburgh as a stand-in for Gotham, and the a game featuring city's fictional football team plays into the storyline.

"I'm kind of getting everybody together," quarterback Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I heard it's going to be a neat thing at the stadium. I don't think it will be a big part, it's not like we're chasing Batman down or anything."

Amongst the players joining Roethlisberger will be stars Troy Polamalu, James Farrior and Hines Ward. Aside from the convenient location, Thomas Tull, one of the team's owners, is executive producing the film.

Pittsburgh's open streets have provided a lot of news on the film, with photos and video from the set captured by paparazzi revealing major fight scenes between Batman and Bane, as well as Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman).
