“The Batman” Resumes Production in England

After taking a break from shooting, “The Batman” film is back in production, according to CNN. The movie was forced to halt filming last month when star Robert Pattinson, who will star as Bruce Wayne, tested positive for the Coronavirus. It was the second delay after production was also paused in March when the pandemic began.

“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a Warner Bros. Studios official said last month about the temporary filming pause.

Pattinson was reportedly excited to play the role and even lied to Christopher Nolan, the director of “Tenet,” regarding his screen test for it. While he told Nolan he had to go to a “family emergency,” Pattinson said the director immediately guessed he was auditioning for the famous role.

The movie also stars Colin Farrell as The Penguin, complete with face scars and prosthetic wrinkles, and Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, who was seen dressed in a shiny black trench coat and a matching headpiece while shooting in Liverpool, England, according to Yahoo News. Peter Sarsgaard, Jeffrey Wright, and Andy Serkis, who plays Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred, also star in the film.

“The Batman” is scheduled to hit theaters on March 4 of next year. It marks the movie’s third release date, according to Newsweek. The dates for the Matt Reeves blockbuster were moved from June 2021 to October 2021, only for the film to move again when the movie, “Dune,” took over its slot.
