While I think of it as anything but "great architecture," I agree PPG Place would make a great Gotham City skyscraper.

No. I don't like it at all. Every time I think of the great Philip Johnson building it could have been, instead of this black glass castle (glastle?), I experience my sense of disappointment all over again.

I'm confused, it is a Philip Johnson building. Did he have an earlier proposal that was rejected?

You do know they're in the glass business, don't you?

I'm wondering how it will look when they make the city look bigger (cgi, computer expansion). Pittsburgh is way too small to be the massive Gotham, so they will obviously do this. They even did it for Chicago when filming The Dark Knight.

Hathaway always struck me as a fairly intelligent actress (too intelligent to pull a Sienna Miller obviously).
