Earlier this year productions across the world were forced to halt all filming and development, The Batman was not any different. Confirmed by Matt Reeves via Twitter that the film had shut down and wouldn’t resume until it was safe for all involved behind and in front of the camera. Having only shot about 25% of the film, everyone involved wasn’t sure how long it would be until they could get back to production and how this would affect the film.
It’s now being reported that the The Batman is set to jumpstart production once again in early September at WB Studios in Leavesden. This news comes shortly after rumors began to circulate that the film would be scrapping many of its planned locations and filming entirely on sets. The film is reported to have about three months of material left to film and hope to finish shooting by the end of 2020.
The Batman is set to release on October 1st 2021, after suffering a delay due to the ongoing pandemic when it was initially set to release on June 25th, 2021. The film will star Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader himself, he’s joined by Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrel. The film is also set to have quite a large presence at the August 22nd Fandome event with both Pattinson and Reeves in attendance, with Reeves promising a new never before seen look at the film.
