Months after production was brought to a screeching halt in March over the growing concerns of the Covid-19 epidemic, it seems that reports of The Batman resuming production in early September are accurate as actors and those behind the cameras seem to be prepping on all fronts to get filming rolling again. The film reportedly only has three months worth of material left to film and they hope to be down by the end of the year to meet their October 1st, 2021 release date.
Crews seem to be back at the Cardington Airfield where within one of the sheds is a Cathedral set that was built for the film and can be seen in the recent trailer. Outside along the airfield, crews were spotted unloading vehicles resembling the newest Batmobile out of a van. The crew was seemingly test driving the vehicles near set probably to assess if any disrepair had come to them after months in storage and make sure they were ready to film.
Matt Reeves recently made an appearance at the highly anticipated Fandome Event, where he got into the what inspired him in this project and what he saw in these characters that made him want to dig deep and really flesh them out and the city around them, almost one living thing. The panel was by far one of, if not the most well received with the teaser released at the event racking up a stunning 19 million views.
Reports of The Batman resuming filming in early September have seemingly come true and it seems they’re ready to finish work on the first installment on Pattinson‘s debut as the caped crusader. Actor Alex Ferns, who will portray Commissioner Pete Savage in the film, recently tweeted out about how good it felt to finally get back to set. This lead to speculation on what set he is referring to. With the film having abruptly shutdown production in March, it’s unlikely that Ferns finished filming his scenes. Ferns can be seen in the recent teaser trailer to the film at the 0:55 mark, next to Gordon seemingly addressing the press on the incidents that transpired at the same funeral shown in the teaser.
The Batman will be directed by Matt Reeves and is set to release on October 1st, 2021, the film will star Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farrel, and Andy Serkis.
