Initial filming on The Batman has been taking place in Glasgow in Scotland. The production team for the reboot of the franchise has been seen shooting with a stuntman on a Batcycle at the Necropolis cemetery, located near Glasgow Cathedral and Glasgow Royal Infirmary (possibly doubling as Arkham Asylum?). There was no sign of Robert Pattison yet.
