Subway ads replaced and fake vandalism for Batman filming on Wall Street

On Saturday, the Dark Knight himself descended on Wall Street – Filming for the new Batman movie closed down Wall Street for most of the day.

The scenes filmed on Wall Street involved large crowds, simulated gunfire, fake snow, and all the advertisements in the area being covered up with fake revolutionary flyers and graffiti.

Gotham PD

The Gotham Police Department cars have been seen quite frequently, and they were also stationed around Wall Street. Since no new Crown Victorias are being produced, these Gotham PD cars were actually de-commissioned police cars, with some of the original interior remaining.
