Matt Reeves Filmed 25 Percent Of "The Batman" Prior To Shutdown


On March 25, The Batman director Matt Reeves confirmed that the movie production was shut down due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, and that they'll resume when it's safe.

The film is slated for a June 2021 release, but that could obviously change depending on how much longer production is delayed. The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

In an interview with Deadline, Reeves said they haven't started editing yet, but that they finished a large chunk of production before the shutdown.

"We’re not officially editing right now," Reeves said. "We’ve actually shot a quarter of the movie and I have been pouring through dailies, looking at takes, and what’s to come."

The Batman was being filmed in London prior to production shutdown, and Reeves admitted doubts about being able to "finish in London," while referring to the situation as "fluid."

Reeves also shut down any speculation that he could change up the writing for the film. And for what it's worth, he wouldn't give any hints about Robin or his family (the flying Graysons) appearing.

The previous films featuring the World's Greatest Detective - Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League - were directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck starring as Batman. Snyder left Justice League during production following the untimely passing of his daughter, and Affleck decided to step down from the role due to personal reasons as well as a lost passion motivation to continue the superhero film.

Aside from Pattinson, The Batman also includes a trio of popular and iconic villains from the Rogues' Gallery: Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Colin Farrell as the Penguin. The Batman will mark the first live action film to include Riddler (1995) and Penguin (1992) in over two decades.

Other cast members include Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Batman's loyal butler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson, Con O'Neill as Chief Mackenzie Bock and Alex Ferns as Commissioner Pete Savage.
