Production on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is reportedly scheduled to continue in spite of the coronavirus outbreak.
With the coronavirus pandemic prompting people and businesses to take precautions in order to minimize the spread of the disease, several film studios have shut down production on multiple projects in order to lower the risk of exposure to the virus. With production on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman currently away in the United Kingdom, where the number reported coronavirus cases has risen to 798, some fans wondered if the DC film might be the next project to be impacted by the pandemic.
Now, Variety’s Justin Kroll states that sources close to Warner Bros. are saying Robert Pattinson’s The Batman will continue filming. Furthermore, Keanu Reeves‘ The Matrix 4 and King Richard will continue production while Black Adam won’t begin filming until August and The Suicide Squad is currently in the post-production phase.

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.
