24Wayne Manor is filmed in the same building as Batman Forever

Dating back to the forties, Batman has inspired no fewer than fifteen films, eleven TV shows, and a musical – not to mention forays into radio and gaming. It’s not surprising, then, that such a vast legacy has frequently overlapped. Gotham is no different in that respect.

Probably the

most striking evidence of inter-franchise borrowing would be the show’s use of the Webb Institute’s Stevenson Taylor Hall as one of Gotham’s leading locations. Yes, taking inspiration from Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever, and its follow-up Batman & Robin, the Hall here stands in for Wayne Manor. This time, however, filming takes place inside and out. As all true Batman fans know, the Schumacher films employed it for exterior shots only.
