IMAX is a very popular format at this moment. The directors often prefer this format to obtain the quality, uniqueness and feel of the film. Since this is a popular format, most films have been shot in it and people have praised them for their picture quality.
The movies shot in IMAX are pretty easy to detect. You only need to watch a movie for about two or three minutes to tell that this movie is filmed using IMAX. However, there is one movie that left the moviegoers confused. It’s Batman. A lot of Batman lovers couldn’t figure it out.
Time has passed, and I have seen people still questioning who the movie was filmed. Since this is a burning question, I decided to watch the film and do a little research to find out the truth. After watching the film and doing thorough research, here is what I have to say;
Was Batman Filmed in IMAX?
No, for the record, the film that made billions of dollars at the box office worldwide was not filmed using IMAX.
Thousands of films have been shot and are being shot in IMAX, however, Batman is not one of them.
Why was Batman not filmed in IMAX?
It has not been revealed by the directors or producers so far why Batman was not filmed on IMAX.
Frankly, no one even bothered why the film was not shot by IMAX. Who “really” cares? The moviegoers usually focus on the film rather than figuring out what the movie is shot in.
If Batman was not filmed in IMAX
This superhit movie was filmed using Arri Alexa LF anamorphic camera lenses. That’s the major reason why this film has got a soft bokeh effect. If it was shot in IMAX, the effect would have been different.
Not even one scene of Batman is filmed in IMAX
Sometimes the entire movie is filmed with the same camera lens and sometimes don’t.
Some movies are not filmed with one but with different cameras. Whether Batman is filmed in one or different lenses, not even one scene is filmed using IMAX.
IMAX has given us many other superhits
Since IMAX at the moment is a very popular format. A lot of super hit movies have been shot in IMAX but not Batman.
The superhit movies shot in IMAX are The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Star Trek Into Darkness, Transformers; Revenge of the Fallen, Avengers: Infinity Wars, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Transformer: Age of Extinction, Transformer: The Last Knight, and Iron Man 2, etc.
In brief, No, the movie called Batman was not filmed using IMAX. It is rather filmed using Arri Alexa LF anamorphic camera lenses. Not even a single scene of Batman has shot in IMAX.
