A tweet from Matt Reeves himself revealed that production of The Batman may still continue to be shut down until further notice.
Last week production of The Batman starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and the titular masked vigilante of the same name was suspended temporarily amid the novel coronavirus pandemic – at first for around two weeks.
However, now the latest coming from director Matt Reeves is that UK production is indeed suspended until further notice.
After a fan asked about what was happening with the production on Twitter, Reeves confirmed that everything is shut down for the moment and that everyone is safe. He commented:
With everything that’s going on right now, the entertainment industry has felt the impact and productions of various feature films (like Village Roadshow’s The Matrix 4) and TV shows such as The Flash, Riverdale, Supergirl and Batwoman have shut down as precautionary methods.
Before production was halted, the creative team behind Warner Bros. Pictures were around two months into filming as principal photography began in January. While the delay is undoubtedly a setback, it’s the right thing to do for the safety of the cast, crew and indeed everyone involved in the production.
Centering on a young, but established caped–and–cowl crusader fairly early on in his crime-fighting career The Batman stars Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Jayme Lawson and Peter Sarsgaard.
Matt Reeves is directing from a screenplay he has co-written with Mattson Tomlin. Reeves and Dylan Clark are producing for Pearl Street Films in association with 6th and Idaho Productions. Warner Bros. is set to distribute as The Batman will soar and glide into theatres June 25, 2021.
