We knew Christopher Nolan's final Batman film would be action-packed, but now a stuntman working on the production has spilled a few details about an epic battle scene he did for The Dark Knight Rises. Potential spoilers ahead!

Talking to ActionFest, professional stuntman and former Sylvester Stallone stunt double Mark DeAlssandro discussed a large-scale rooftop battle that includes Batman (Christian Bale) and Catwoman (Anne Hathaway).

"They force you to do some stunt acting jobs as you get older and now I'm one of the featured mercenaries in The Dark Knight Rises that is coming out soon," he said. "I got to do some really cool hand to hand combat with 12 mercenaries. Anne Hathaway is there in her nice Catwoman outfit and Christian Bale as Batman. It is on a rooftop and the Bat Copter is there which is the bomb. It was unbelievable."

Can't wait to see Bats take on a dozen mercs—including the backup Stallone—because that sounds awesome. The Dark Knight Rises is set to open theatrically on July 20.
