SOURCE: Ben Affleck's THE BATMAN Filming in LA

On one of the last BOF PODCASTS, the gang and I wondered where Ben Affleck would film his Batman film?

Would he go “Nolan” and film a good chunk of it on location in a city of his choice? Or, would he go "Burton/Schumacher" and film mostly on soundstages?

Either way, would Mr. Affleck and Warner Bros. choose take the production out of the U.S. and shoot in, say, the U.K. or perhaps Australia?

I have been told that the bulk of the filming of THE BATMAN will take place in Los Angeles – most likely at the Warner Bros. studios in Burbank. When asked if any filming will occur on-location or outside of the U.S., he/she wasn’t sure – but is adamant that production is based on LA.

Fine by me – my only hope is that Mr. Affleck doesn’t “green screen” the entire movie and does shoot part of it outside on-location. SUCH AS: Gordon/Batman rooftop scenes (and you know that THE BATMANs going to have one or a few). Maybe it’s just me, but I’d rather they be shot on, well, a real rooftop as opposed to a soundstage. ANYWAY…

It appears that THE BATMAN is not only going to stay home in the U.S., but stay home in Hollywood as well.

THE BATMAN allegedly hits theaters sometime in 2018.
