The Scottish city of Glasgow has reached a level 4 ‘severe’ orange heat warning. Residents are experiencing temperatures as high as 43 degrees Celsius (109 F) with no relief in sight. For those that can’t change their surroundings, the city is offering free blackout blinds and earplugs to help them sleep better while they wait for cooler weather to return
The “best blackout shades” is a service offered by Glasgow residents. The service offers blinds, earplugs and noise-cancelling headphones for the movie Batgirl.

Set builders have been altering Glasgow’s streets in preparation for the production of what is thought to be the upcoming Batgirl film, with homeowners receiving complimentary earplugs and blackout blinds to help with the noise.
Residents of Glasgow’s Trongate neighborhood will witness their cherished streets turned into scenes from a superhero film, similar to how Glasgow was transformed into scenes from The Flash in July, complete with flashing lights and pedestrian control.
Glasgow, it seems, is the new Gotham.
On Tuesday, workers in one region of the city were spotted erecting a Christmas market, while others put Christmas decorations in a store window and painted out street names.
On Monday, team workers erected graffiti-covered boards showing Batman, teacups, and crabs on the city’s walls as the mythical Gotham, home to caped crusader Batman and his cousin Batgirl, was converted into Scotland’s second city.
Homeowners may have to endure loud action scenes and shooting that lasts until 1:30 a.m., according to reports, with production firm American Night mailing letters to nearby residents and businesses in Glasgow Cross last week.

According to the Daily Record, the letter, which was widely circulated on social media, reminded people impacted of the company’s capabilities.
‘As we said in our last letter, due to the anti-social hours of some of our work, we can give black-out material for windows and/or foam earplugs to anybody who believes they may need them,’ it read.
‘We have been granted permission by Glasgow City Council to erect temporary road closures during our shooting and associated work, in order to protect the safety of both the general public and our film team while we operate along these roads,’ the statement read.
‘As previously noted, there may be a need for some pedestrian control in the area.’
‘This may imply that we have to ask individuals to wait for a short length of time before being led to/from their destination for those residences and businesses in the near neighborhood.’

‘We understand that this may be inconvenient, and we will make every effort to reduce waiting periods to a minimum,’ it said.
Leslie Grace, the breakthrough actress of In The Heights, will play the titular character in the Batgirl picture, which also stars Brendan Fraser from The Mummy and JK Simmons.
Following in the footsteps of The Flash, Batgirl includes Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman, which he originally played in the 1989 film Batman and again in the 1993 sequel Batman Returns.
Frank Miller, a comic book writer, has dubbed him the “greatest Batman of all time.”
