The Batman director Matt Reeves has revealed the first photo from the set of the Robert Pattinson movie, which is now filming.
Warner Bros. and DC’s The Batman had a few setbacks before the hiring of Matt Reeves. Originally, The Batman was supposed to be written and directed by Ben Affleck, who would have also starred in the DC Comics movie. This didn’t end up happening and eventually Matt Reeves was brought in to write and direct The Batman with Robert Pattinson playing the titular hero and actors like Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright and Colin Farrell filling the rest of the film’s cast. Now, The Batman has officially kicked off production.
Earlier this week, Matt Reeves took to Twitter to announce that The Batman has started filming in the United Kingdom. The director shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the film’s set, showing that production is finally underway. You can check out his tweet below.
