Christopher said in a statement: "Pittsburgh is a beautiful city. We have been able to find everything we were looking for here and I am excited to spend the summer in Pittsburgh with our final installment of Batman."
Location scouts have decided on shooting in the Downtown part of the city, with Dawn Keezer from the Pittsburgh Film Office confirming the crew "fell in love" with the area.
She said: "They're still nailing down actual locations but what they really fell in love with was the Diversity of the architecture and the gorgeous buildings that we still have in Downtown Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas."
It was thought it would be the third and last time 'Inception' filmmaker Christopher would be working on a Batman movie, but Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov recently claimed he may return to reboot the franchise as a producer.
