A variety of highly anticipated blockbusters have been delayed due to global health issues which forced sets around the world to shut down. Various projects have since kicked back up with new healthy and safety measures, including Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Filming first resumed across the pond, but now it looks like Gotham is going stateside.
Filming for The Batman had barely begun when the set was shut down over pandemic concerns. By moving the set to Pinewood in the U.K., Matt Reeves and company were able to get back to work on the highly anticipated DC blockbuster. But reports from Chicago indicate that production is setting up shop in The Windy City. ReelBlend co-host Jake Hamilton shared an image from this process, check it out below.
