Moskal said details are being worked out, but he estimated filming would take place “mid-June to the early part of September.” “They will be shooting continuously in Chicago through that time frame,” he added.
He explained that most film crews work five-day weeks, but Moskal didn’t know what five days the TDK crew would use.
It’s unknown what exact areas of Chicago will be used. Moskal said film crews generally don’t publish filming locations “because of crowd control.”
“There has been scouting, but nothing specific,” he said.

Both Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan have seen a new Batsuit & there’s been a fitting.
I told this person how I didn’t particularly dig the suit in Batman Begins and said it was too bulky. To this he/she replied, “Well then you’ll love the new one.” He/she also stated that Bats changes his suit halfway through the film – and its a major plotpoint as to the how and why this happens.
