The Dark KnightEdit

Blackgate is mentioned several times during the course of The Dark Knight but is never seen.

The Dark Knight RisesEdit

Through the Dent Act, all key individuals with known links to the organized crime ring in Gotham City are placed in Blackgate Prison, with no chance of parole. Selina Kyle is imprisoned in Blackgate Prison following an encounter with John Blake at Gotham Airport. After Bane reveals the truth behind the circumstances of Harvey Dent's death, he uses one of the Tumblers stolen from Wayne Enterprises' Applied Science Division to destroy the entrance to Blackgate. Bane's militia then proceed to release all of the inmates who join his cause.
