DC's 'Metropolis' Filming Location and Dates Reportedly Revealed

The DC TV landscape is set to grow even more, with the prequel series Metropolis being announced late last month. And now, we might have a better idea of when and where the series will begin filming.

A new report from OmegaUnderground suggests that Metropolis will be filming in New York City, from the months of June to December of 2018.

With the series already getting a 13 episode commitment with DC's currently-untitled streaming service, this period of six-or-so months certainly seems feasible to film Metropolis' entire first season. And the New York setting is certainly interesting, as it would provide a condense cityscape to properly mirror the comic version of Metropolis. (As opposed to the Vancouver filming locations of the Arrowverse shows.)

The official description for Metropolis can be found below.

"Set in the so-called City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city's dark and bizarre secrets."


The pilot is being written by John Stephens and directed by Danny Cannon, with both Gotham alums also executive producing the series. There is no casting at this time, but if the series will begin production this summer, then announcements are sure to come sooner than later.

This will be the second live-action series to air on DC's upcoming service, joining Titans, which is currently in production. The service is also set to produce an animated series based on Harley Quinn, and the highly-anticipated third installment of Young Justice.
