GCPD black! ‘Batman’ cops spotted in Brooklyn

Holy shadow security team, Batman: Filming of the new “Batman” movie has been going on all over town, but some important extras — Gotham City police vehicles — are often parked at a lot on Gerry Street in South Williamsburg.

Look out, NYPD, there’s a new police force in town — and it has much cooler cars.

We spotted these monster vehicles from the Gotham City Police Department and SWAT team — presumably some of the fancier set pieces from “The Dark Knight Rises,” the latest installment in the Batman series — parked on Gerry Street between Harrison and Flushing avenues in Williamsburg.

The film’s production has been making waves around the city, shooting in Lower Manhattan

— but has yet to have a major presence in the borough.

Representatives from Warner Brothers could not confirm whether the film — which features Christian Bale, reprising his role as Bruce Wayne, and Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon-Levitt — would be filming in Brooklyn.

Perhaps we Brooklynites must flash the bat signal into the night sky.

“Anything is possible,” said the Warner Bros’ rep. “The only way you’ll know is if you try.”
