Batwoman Pilot Moves to Chicago

Filming a pilot is a HUGE undertaking! The pilot needs to account for the potential of becoming a recurring TV show. Because of this, sets have to be created as if the show is going to a series order. With Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and the soon ending Arrow all filming in Vancouver BC, much of the Batwoman sets are also up in Vancouver BC. This allows for crossovers to be filmed easier as well as share characters if the need arises. That said, the pilot is moving to Chicago to film exterior shots. Some of you may remember that parts of the Elseworlds crossover, when in Gotham, were filmed in there. The general look of Gotham seems to be replicable in Vancouver but some exterior shots will require the architecture of Chicago. Here are the locations the show will be filming at this week:

  1. Federal Plaza
  2. Outside the Chicago Board of Trade Building, near Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive.
  3. The Clark Street Bridge
  4. Outside the Cook County Building.

We don't know what specifically will be filmed but all locations will likely have outside filming to take full advantage of the Chicago architecture. Let us know what you think the new filming locations in the comments below and in the forum!

Quoting markhb:
Hopefully they will be able to continue this if they get picked up. It wouldn't be every episode, but they could go for a week or two at the start of the season and film a bunch of exteriors. Cheers used to do that; they would go to Boston at the start of filming and grab stuff.

I think you are right about this. Supergirl rarely needs to go to LA but they do grab city shots from time to time. Since Supergirl flies, it is easier to add her in via green screen so the actor's don't have to travel
