New Batman Movie May be Filmed in Transylvania’s Salina Turda Salt Mine
Originally exploited by the Romans, the Salina Turda Salt Mine’s history dates back to at least the middle of the 13th century. And even as a mine, it was a fairly sustainable operation given that no mechanical devices were ever used to cut the salt clods harvested, nor were dynamites exploded. After a series of takeovers, the mine was shut down, but opened again as a tourism destination in 1992.
This is an excellent site for Nolan – not just because it’s a cool set in itself that needs very little intervention – but also because it has a stable microclimate. Temperatures remain steady at between 11 and 12 degrees Celsius, though at 75-80%, humidity levels are usually pretty high. And we couldn’t help but notice that the cave is in Transylvania, a cozy spot for bloodsucking vampires. With his new green cape, Batman is sure to prevail.
