If I was the Executive Producer of the new Batman movie, I would have a scene where the Steelers are in a bar in Gotham City after a big game.

While celebrating Selina Kyle takes a liking to Ben Roethlisberger.

He follows her to the bathroom for some private Center Quarterback exchanges, Selina rebuffs his advances for the Flea Flicker and Batman comes crashing through the window to make the save.

After Batman lays the smackdown Roethlisberger makes his escape with Hines Ward as his driver.

What do you think?

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and approximately 12 other Steelers will head from Latrobe to Heinz Field on Saturday morning for filming.  They’ll then return to St. Vincent College for a real practice.

Thomas Tull, a Steelers minority owner, serves as executive producer for The Dark Knight Rises.  Tull and Roethlisberger reportedly have become friends.

“I’m kind of getting everybody together,” Roethlisberger told Bouchette.  “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.  It’s something neat that in 10 years or 20 years we can tell our kids we were in a movie.  Thomas does movies big and I’m sure it will be a big-time movie and something fun to be part of.”
