Gotham City Police Station Summit
Wanting to build a Gotham City different from its previous representations, Matt Reeves and his teams have scoured several cities in Europe to find the ideal locations, sometimes making amazing collages to achieve their goals. Thus, Gotham City’s central police station combines both the 2 Temple Place and the Royal Liver Building. A way to give this central building of the vigilante universe a patina of its own.
From the top of the Royal Liver Building, Batman (Robert Pattinson) performs one of the most spectacular stunts in the film. It is also from these heights that he contemplates the city to which he has decided to dedicate himself since he first donned the armored suit of the hero. Of course, the special effects specialists had to inlay digital shots to include the Royal Liver Building in its new fictional environment. Nevertheless, the building itself, recognizable thanks to its two majestic clock towers, didn’t require a lot of makeup to shine alongside the dark knight.
The production of The Batman has not been a smooth one. Interrupted due to the Covid-19 pandemic containment, it also had to deal with Robert Pattinson’s infection. Thus, the duration of the shooting was much longer than expected and the release was constantly postponed. Initially starring Ben Affleck, The Batman nevertheless made it to theaters, revealing its sprawling universe, in which Liverpool and its Royal Liver Building do not go unnoticed.
The Batman had a budget of 100 million dollars.
Royal Liver Building 360
Grade II listed, the Royal Liver Building is one of the most remarkable monuments in the city of Liverpool.
Built between 1908 and 1911, this Art Nouveau style building is composed of two clock towers topped by a statue of the Liver Bird, the symbol of the city. With a height of 98.2 meters, designed by Walter Aubrey Thomas, the Royal Liver Building houses the headquarters of the Royal Liver Friendly Society. Overlooking the river Mersey, this glorious building is home to the headquarters of Everton FC and HSBC, but also contains part of the city’s gold reserve, in imposing vaults. It stands next to the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building, two other local celebrities.
