Batman in Iceland

Posted on July 3, 2009 by

In 2005 the movie “Batman Begins” by C. Noaln was launched world wide. The production of the movie chose Iceland to reproduce the Buthan environment, i.e. the place where the main character of the movie receives his initial training.

Particularly the scenes have been shot in the South- East of the island, on the Vatnajökull glacier: a territory that was perfect as it was, with no need to change it for the movie.

The only problem was reach this place: as in this region the only way is the Ring Road, a new road was built to go up to the iced lake, where takes place the fight of Bruce Wayne with Ducard, and also to reach the area where the village and the monastery were reconstructed.

During the shots, a terrible storm, with strong winds that blew at 120km/h, occurred in the region, but the troupe went on shooting taking advantage of this natural event to make more realistic the atmosphere of the movie.
