A new report suggests Matt Reeves’ The Batman will resume production in September, with most of the film’s sets being built in a studio.
Like many other big budget productions, Matt Reeves’ The Batman was affected by the ongoing pandemic, with work on the film being paused over safety concerns. Most recently, the United Kingdom’s Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden revealed that guidelines will be implemented to allow studios to resume shooting in the country. It seems like Warner Bros. and DC are keen to resume production on Matt Reeves’ The Batman, with a new report suggesting that work will begin again this September.
The Call Sheet’s Kris Tapley explained on Twitter that he has heard The Batman resumes work in September and that all scenes shot on-location have been scrapped in favor of working in a studio. If true, it’ll be interesting to see how this affects the scale of the Robert Pattinson-led Batman reboot. However, thanks to the sheer size of modern studios, this could also allow the film to pull off stunts and other scenes in ways not possible on-location.
Hearing THE BATMAN picks back up in September. All locations scrapped. Building everything in studio now.

Plot details for The Batman are under wraps but the project will be centered on Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. The Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character.
