The coronavirus has been affecting the whole world and its impact has been seen in the entertainment industry. Disney recently announced that they are shutting down all productions because of the coronavirus. Many were also wondering about the status of The Batman with Variety’s Justin Kroll sharing that production hadn’t been canceled on Friday.
As of today, Warner Bros. has now confirmed that production on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is going on a two-week hiatus because of the coronavirus. The Batman started production last month in the United Kingdom with Matt Reeves already sharing official looks at the batsuit and the batmobile. There’s no word on whether this will impact The Batman‘s June 2021 release date at this time.

Full plot details on The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow the Caped Crusader during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
