All the films and TV shows shot in Glasgow in 2021

This year was no exception with many production companies choosing to travel here to film various projects.

The city played everything from Moscow to Gotham and lucky Glaswegians were teleported to different countries and even times.

Here is a list of different films and TV shows that were shot in Glasgow this year:

1. Batgirl

The HBO Max production, starring Leslie Grace began filming in Glasgow in early December and is set to be released in 2022.

The production crew turned the city’s streets snowy and icy for the shoot as passers-by crossed the set.

It has also recently been revealed that Michael Keaton will return as the iconic superhero, Batman.

The story follows a Scottish Ambulance Service handler and is set in Glasgow.

The thriller will be available on BBC One once production is finished.

3. Indiana Jones 5

The city travelled back in time to celebrate the moon landing this summer for the newest and fifth film of the popular franchise.

Dressed in American flags and shops, multiple city centre streets were involved in the filming.

It stars Harrison Ford, who didn’t travel to Glasgow, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who was spotted at the shoot.

Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled to be released in July 2022.

4. The Flash

Glasgow had its fair share of masked DC vigilantes this year. The Flash was filmed here in the summer.

 The shoot provided onlookers with a unique experience as Batman sped down the city’s streets.

Even George Square’s webcam was shut off while the cameras were rolling.

Starring Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, the film is set to hit theatres in November 2022.

At the beginning of the year, Glasgow transformed into 1980s’ Moscow for the shoot of Tetris, starring Taron Egerton.

The production was shot at multiple locations in the city, which served as a substitute for the Soviet Union.

It is yet to be confirmed when the film about the popular computer game will be released.
