Robert Pattinson’s The Batman and other projects are allowed to continue filming as the UK goes under another national lockdown as COVID-19 numbers rise once again.

The Batman started principal photography almost a year ago, but filming was notably put on hold for months due to COVID-19. Matt Reeves and the film crew returned to set back in the fall before Robert Pattinson tested positive, which led to a two-week shutdown of production. Since then, The Batman‘s production hasn’t faced any more obstacles, but increasing COVID-19 cases in the UK has led to another national lockdown.

On Monday, UK Prime Minister Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a national shutdown which has led to more restrictions. However, The Batman and other film and TV projects will be able to continue production as the national lockdown is put into place. Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is expected to finish filming in February.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as Gotham City’s Dark Knight. The Batman will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films starring Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, Robert Pattinson stars 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 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Robert Pattinson’s upcoming film, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
