Robert Pattinson offers comment on status of The Batman

Robert Pattinson is still on a break from filming The Batman, but it appears he doesn’t find that to be the worst thing in the world.

As the coronavirus pandemic began to spread globally, The Batman shut down production in March. Since that time we have only received bits and pieces of updates on the status of the film.

Now as publicity begins for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, it is inevitable that Pattinson will be asked about the status of the film. It seems that the actor isn’t exactly hating the break in production.

“We’d really gotten into a really good rhythm as well, so it’s kind of strange to be pausing. But, again, it’s a hard movie. I mean, obviously it’s Batman, so it’s kind of nice,” Pattinson told Total Film. “I basically went straight from Chris [Nolan’s] movie into that. And, yeah, I was feeling a little bit loopy anyway. So having some time off is not the worst thing in the world. But hopefully it’ll be sooner rather than later that everything is hopefully in a better place.”

The United Kingdom is currently in the process of setting out rules for how films will return to production. No firm date has been announced for when those rules will be finalized, and in turn, that means we still don’t know when The Batman will resume filming.

The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
