This!
Brilliant detective work Scott!
That appears to be an expensive shot, it makes sense they would have used it somewhere before.
So what about the buildings that are the backdrop for the Bat-climbs? Are they a custom job, or had they been used before?
I always enjoy the podcast, but this one is one of my favs.

Scott, great research! Glad I mentioned the convincing sunlight in that scene. I'm curious what you mean by "matte overlay." Is this something that was added post filming?
"Matte paintings" or "matte overlays" were traditionally hand painted on to sheets of glass and then placed over live-action film footage to create or adapt environments as needed.
Wow, impressive what they could do with the technology they had at the time. Thanks!
