In the past, cities like New York, Chicago and Hong Kong have served as inspiration for Gotham.
Movies like Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis' have also influenced some of the looks and visions of the city, but now, it's Glasgow's turn to become Batman's stomping ground.
The Daily Record has confirmed that Glasgow is now set to be the main shooting location for Gotham in Matt Reeves' 'The Batman' next month. While some set photos from London made their way online last week, it's understood that production will kick off in Glasgow, with residents expected to catch the first glimpse of the Batmobile in action as well.
It's not the first time Glasgow has had a major blockbuster working inside the city. 'Avengers: Infinity War' was also filmed in Glasgow, as was 'World War Z', 'Fast and Furious 6', 'Hobbs and Shaw', and 'The Dark Knight Rises'.
So far, there's been no word on the plot of 'The Batman', however casting announcements have been coming steadily over the past few months, with the likes of Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Peter Sarsgaard and John Turturro all confirmed for major roles, with Robert Pattinson in the lead role.
'The Batman' arrives in Irish cinemas on June 25th, 2021.
