Just one day after saying that filming would continue to commence on The Batman, Warner Bros. has done an about face and has now decided to suspend production on the highly anticipated DC film for a two week span amidst the pandemic gripping the world at this time.
When asked about why they changed their minds, the studio simply stated that “the studio will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
This comes to light after a week of production halts around the world and the announcements that a horde of major film releases would be delayed.
As of now, production is still commencing on The Matrix 4 with that filming being conducted on a soundstage in Berlin with all cast and crew taking the necessary precautions.
Up until now, we had been getting a variety of new images from the production of The Batman with the latest being Robert Pattinson in full Batman uniform standing next to his Batmobile.
One would assume that the two week stoppage will not affect the release date of the film unless the production halts for longer.
Pattinson stars alongside Zoe Kravitz who is playing Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka the Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton, aka the Riddler,Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth who is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted butler and ally.
The plot is being kept under wraps for now but Director Matt Reeves has hinted that the movie roll explore The Dark Knight’s early years and will take from the Year One plot of the comics.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more details to follow. The newest incarnation of the DC comics superhero is still set to hit theaters on June 25th, 2021.
