Matt Reeves‘ highly anticipated The Batman has now descended upon Chicago. The scene being shot last night, at Clark and Washington Streets, seems to be a continuation of a scene being shot in Liverpool where Bruce (Robert Pattinson) and Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz) are being chased on motorcycles.
Here, Patt-Man’s stuntman and Kravitz’s stuntwoman are seen in action near The Thompson Center.
It was thought that Reeves’ Batman took place in a different universe, but now that could be debunked. One seems one of the extras is dressed as Superman. This may confirms the Man of Steel exists in this world. This could just be a throwaway Easter Egg. But it’s still “super” cool.
Bruce and Selina will continue filming this weekend near 100 W. Randolph. According to Filming in Chicago, the Batman new locations for next weekend are: “300 W Wacker; LaSalle St bridge; 299 S Wells; LaSalle & Jackson; Wabash & Monroe and 300 W Jackson.
The Batman will film in Chicago October 16, 17, 18, 24 and 25. Stay tuned to Reel 360 for more Bat updates. Same Bat time. Same Bat outlet.
