Glasgow in recent years has been the home of plenty of big productions.

Here is a list of the shoots that we spotted in the city this year.

1. Batgirl

The city was buzzing with excitement at the beginning of the year as it was cast to be Gotham again in the DC production.

Alongside Hollywood actorss Michael Keaton, Brendan Fraser and JK Simmons, star of the series, Leslie Grace was spotted numerous times on set and in her farewell message, she said Scotland "welcomed her with open arms".

Sadly, Batgirl was canned in early August.

Described as an "adrenaline-fueled thriller", it is sure to be a hit.
