The streets of Gotham City will once again be safe as The Batman has officially returned to production.
Production on The Batman had shut down on Sept. 3 due to a positive COVID-19 test. While it was never officially stated what cast member had tested positive due to privacy laws, multiple reports had stated that it was Batman himself, Robert Pattinson. All Warner Bros. would say in the days following the announcement was that it hoped production could be resumed quickly.
Warner Bros. issued a statement on Thursday saying, “Following a hiatus for COVID 19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K.”
With the film having only shot for three days since resuming production, it’s unclear at this stage if this will have any impact on the release date. That is an issue that is sure to be dealt with at a future date.
The Batman will star Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
