​Batman Spotted On Top Of Liver Building In Liverpool As Filming Continues

​Batman Spotted On Top Of Liver Building In Liverpool As Filming Continues

Batman was spotted chilling out at the top of the Liver Building in Liverpool today, though this time he wasn't around to fight crime, just to shoot a movie.

The new Batman film is currently shooting scenes in the city, where locals have been able to catch a glimpse of Robert Pattinson in action as our caped crusader.

But it looks like he decided to sit this sequence out, having sensibly handed the reins over to his stuntman - who was seen bravely hanging from the top of the iconic building, suspended by wires. Rather you than me, mate.

A coloured light behind him cast an ominous red glow from inside the tower, while a helicopter could be seen circling nearby.

Many people in Liverpool were surprised when they looked up to find the famous character, with one tweeting: "Walking out of work to see a lockdown Liverpool, with Batman having a laugh on the Liver Building."

Sharing photos, another said: "Spotted a helicopter circling the Liver Buildings in Liverpool city centre on my way home just now, turns out this is what I saw... #TheBatman."

A third added: "Never thought I'd see Batman stood on the Liver Building!"

By the looks of things, the production team had a long shoot on their hands, as they were seen filming well into the evening.

The crew have been filming in various locations across the UK, with Pattinson seen on set in Liverpool earlier this week.

The 34-year-old was in character as Bruce Wayne, looking very sombre in a dark suit, tie and coat outside St George's Hall in Liverpool.

It seems as though the city is doubling up as Gotham, with Gotham Police cars seen parked outside the venue.

According to the Daily Mail, Warner Brothers vans were also spotted in the city centre as workmen hauled props into St George's Hall.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has caused production to be delayed several times, meaning Warner Bros has had to give cast and crew more time to get everything done.

Originally, the move was due to drop on 1 October next year, but earlier this month it was announced that it would be pushed back several months, meaning we'll now have to wait around until 4 March 2022.
