Warner Bros.’ next solo Batman movie, currently titled The Batman, is on track to begin production this spring, possibly in mid-April (per Omega Underground). Ben Affleck stars, directs and co-writes the film, which will also star Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
Now, in the midst of this week’s non-news headlines shedding doubt on The Batman‘s future, we have an update on exactly where the movie will undergo production.
Sources have told both Batman-on-Film and Batman-News that The Batman will shoot in Los Angeles, CA. That city is where the “bulk” of production will be, according to BOF, and it will most likely shoot in WB’s studios in Burbank. No details on any other potential shooting locations or if any filming will take place on-location.
As we draw closer to the start of production on The Batman, expect more news to come soon.
A release date for The Batman has yet to be announced, but don’t be surprised if WB schedules it for some time in 2018.
