THE BATMAN to resume production in September

THE BATMAN will finally resume production this September after production was halted in March.

The Batman was forced to halt filming in the UK in March due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but it has now been confirmed that work will resume next month when Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson return to the UK.

Deadline has confirmed that production on The Batman will resume in the UK next month. The plan is for the DC Comics adaptation to head to Leavesden Studios, the same place where movies like Harry Potter and Justice League have called home in recent years.

Filming was halted in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but construction on the set began last month when Matt Reeves swapped real-life locations for those on a sound stage thanks to the virus.

The benefits of returning to the UK include the fact that, unlike in Canada, American production crews do not need to be quarantined for fourteen days before work, as film productions are considered essential workers there. The Batman will have a presence at the DC FanDome this Saturday, and the hope is that some images will be shared given how much work was done before the closing.

While it's great news that The Batman may begin filming again, the delay caused Matt Reeves' DC Comics adaptation to be postponed from June to October 2021. That's a slight delay given the current situation, and it could be a suitable release date given rumors that The Long Halloween will be adapted.

Rumor has it that this classic Dark Knight story has inspired its director, but more details could emerge this weekend. Although its director Matt Reeves has already begun to give us some advance such as the presentation of the official logo of the film.
