Apparently, someone is having a blast with their cell phone camera on the set of The Dark Knight, which is currently shooting in Chicago. Tipster Paul pointed us towards a site that is currently hosting what appear to be the first photos of Batman on set. Based on both pics, I'm going to be careful about announcing to the world that Christian Bale is inside that bat suit -- since we never actually see his face, there's a chance it's a stuntman. Regardless, does the dude look jacked or what? We got our first chance to see Bale in full costume the other day when folks scanned a full page photo of the new and improved Batman from out of EW magazine. However, the pics today are the first to show the man in action.

Based on what we see, it looks like Batman is hanging around in some alley waiting to jump off a set of wooden stairs. There's one shot of him from the front (featured right), as well as one from behind and off to the side. Artistically, I really dig the second shot (it would be better if that shampoo-like bottle wasn't in frame), but when it comes to spy photos I'm not so sure we're looking for fancy angles. This new set of photos join a host of other pics that have shown up online in recent days while the much-anticipated sequel shoots in Chicago. We've already received what appears to be a first look at the Joker's purple clown car, as well as shots of both Maggie Gyllenhaal (as Rachel Dawes) and Aaron Eckhart (as Harvey Dent). With spies situated all over this set, it's only a matter of time before a crystal clear pic of Heath Ledger as the Joker makes its way onto computer screens across the world. Stay tuned folks, there's a lot more coming down the pipeline ...
