The Dark Knight has been spotted in Glasgow as filming for The Batman got under way in the city centre on Friday.

New images have shown the DC Comics superhero's new suit being worn by what is believed to be a stuntman.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson will play the dual role of Bruce Wayne and the Batman in the upcoming blockbuster.

The Warner Bros film is set for release in 2021 and will star Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell alongside Pattinson.

The caped crusader was seen wiping rain away from his goggles as Glasgow, which is thought to be doubling up as Gotham, was hit with a yellow weather warning on Friday.

Matt Reeves gave Batman lovers a first glimpse at the superhero's new suit just a week ago, sharing a tweet with the hashtag #CameraTest.

Crews were in place around the Necropolis cemetery near Glasgow Cathedral and Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Road closures will remain in place in the city until Sunday including Wishart Street, Ladywell Street, Cathedral Square, Drygate and John Knox Street, alongside diversions around Castle Street, High Street, Duke Street and Alexandra Parade.

The cathedral was also used recently to film scenes for Netflix-sequel The Princess Switch: Switched Again starring High School Musical actor Vanessa Hudgens.
