PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers are going rogue.

About a dozen Steelers are playing members of the Gotham Rogues, who take on the equally fictious Rapid City Monuments in a new Batman movie that’s filming in Pittsburgh.

Thousands of extras playing fans also have been recruited for Saturday’s shoot for "Dark Knight Rises" at Heinz Field.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that players getting their star turn include Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu and Casey Hampton.

Linebacker LaMarr Woodley tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he was a big Batman fan growing up and he’s really excited to be part of the film.

Christopher Nolan is directing the third in his Batman trilogy. The movie stars Christian Bale as Batman and Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
