Curious when The Batman will resume production? You’re not alone as Zoe Kravitz would like to know as well.
The Batman shut down production on March 14 as fear of the coronavirus pandemic continued to grow. Since then we’ve picked up small updates here and there, but nothing truly substantial as to when production may resume. While it may be frustrating not knowing when the film will begin shooting again, we are very much not alone.
Variety has run a story about how television and movie productions will attempt to get back to work, and it looks as though it’s going to be a long road for everyone. Amongst the cast and crews that were interviewed for the article was Zoe Kravitz who will play Selina Kyle/Catwoman in the film. The actor said that part of her is “hoping to wake up every day to an email or a phone call saying, ‘We’re ready to go.” She went on to add, “I’m in touch with everybody, and everyone’s ready to go when it’s safe. But no, we have no idea.”
Despite her eagerness to return to work, Kravitz is also aware there are a lot of challenges to be considered. “You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long,” she said. “I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own. I was probably touched more than any job, just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that.”
On a film of this scale, Warner Bros. is sure to be taking extra precautions. Don’t be too surprised if it’s one of the last films to return to work as everyone is sure to be watching what happens with smaller productions.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
