Chicago Shooting of The Batman

Filming took place mostly in downtown Chicago, capturing some action-packed scenes with extensive driving sequences and a massive number of cameras in play. While a relatively brief shoot, THE BATMAN offered a large-scale production that employed plenty of Chicago and Illinois professionals.
