The Batman series director Christopher Nolan has confirmed the next movie will use The Steel City as a backdrop.

"Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" were both shot in Chicago.

"The Dark Knight Rises" begins filming in Pittsburgh this summer.

Crews and various enterprises brought more than $50 million to the local economy.

Nolan once lived in Chicago and showcased various landscapes, especially during stunts and night settings. But our town will get another superhero -- a new Superman movie, produced by Nolan starts filming in the city and suburbs in August.
