    'The Batman' Facing New Setback as Stuntman Tests Positive for Covid-19

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    The Caped Crusader movie reboot has allegedly suffered another setback on set after a stuntman was forced to enter quarantine as he tested positive for the deadly virus.

    Nov 16, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Filming for “The Batman” has reportedly suffered another setback after a stuntman tested positive for Covid-19.
    Sources tell The Sun newspaper the performer, who is part of a bubble with nine other crew members, may not return to set until 2021 as they all quarantine ahead of the Christmas break.
    According to reports, the main cast, including star Robert Pattinson, and the film’s crew are unaffected by the positive test. However, they admitted it’s still “pretty disastrous.”
    “The Batman”, which sees Pattinson take on the role of the Caped Crusader, has already faced heavy delays after production was suspended in March for six months amid the pandemic.

    Further delays occurred when work resumed after Pattinson was reportedly diagnosed with the coronavirus and forced off set.
    Filming for The Batman, which now has a March, 2022 release date, is ongoing at Warner Bros. Studios in Hertfordshire, England. Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell also appear, with Matt Reeves directing the flick.
    Movie and TV industry have been struggling to adapt to post-coronavirus world since lockdown was first imposed earlier this year. Many projects were either pushed back or called off as the industry was brought to a standstill due to the worldwide pandemic.
    James Bond flick “No Time to Die”, Marvel’s “Wonder Woman 1984”, Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune”, Kenneth Branagh’s “Death on the Nile”, Ryan Reynolds’ “Free Guy”, and more movies have been delayed due to the ongoing worldwide health crisis.

  • New 'The Batman' Set Photo Suggests Existence of Another Justice League Member and DC Villain

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Previously, Superman and Wonder Woman have been spotted on the set of the Matt Reeves-directed movie, which is said to be separated from the existing DCEU.

    Oct 19, 2020
    AceShowbiz – “The Batman” will acknowledge another of DC Comics superheroes though the film is billed as a standalone one. A new photo from the Chicago set of the movie hinted at the existence of The Flash in the Robert Pattinson-starring flick.
    As production on the film is shifting to Chicago soon, set and prop design are already taking place and the set is currently not closed. “Fox 32 News” anchor Jake Hamilton, who was recently able to visit the set, noticed a particular property, a ripped flier, that suggests The Flash’s existence.
    In the photo of the artwork posted on his Twitter page, there a logo that is similar to that of the DC superhero Flash. Noticing this, Hamilton wrote along with the image, “Wait – is the THE FLASH logo on the Chicago set of THE BATMAN?!” While the logo doesn’t match what Ezra Miller’s Flash wears, it suggests that another version of The Flash exists in this film.
    Meanwhile, eagle-eyed fans also spotted a possible reference to a DC villain who is not announced to appear in “The Batman”. In the upper part of the ripped poster, there’s a letter “A” which is stylized with a circle around it, similar to the symbol for one of Batman’s villains, Anarky.

    Previously, “The Batman” set photo from the production in London confirmed that Superman and Wonder Woman do exist in Matt Reeves’ “Batman” universe. Two extras were seen dressing as the Man of Steel and the Princess of Themyscira during the filming of a Halloween party scene.
    “The Batman” will exist in a separate universe from the existing DCEU, thus making the appearance of “Justice League” stars Gal Gadot and Miller unlikely.
    Pattinson takes over the role of Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman in the upcoming film, with Reeves serving as director. The movie is now set to arrive on March 4, 2022 after being pushed back from its original release date of October 1, 2021 due to production delay.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    During the filming in Liverpool, London, an onlooker takes a picture of an extra wearing the Man of Steel costume on the set of the Robert Pattinson-starring film.

    Oct 17, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” doesn’t exist in a universe separate from the DCEU as it was initially believed. Though Ben Affleck’s recasting with Robert Pattinson in the upcoming solo film has put the “Justice League” formation in question, a new set photo has seemingly confirmed that Pattinson’s Batman and Superman exist in the same universe.
    The evidence was obtained in the form of set photo which was taken by an onlooker, Sam McGaw, from the set in London. During the filming, someone, who appeared to be one of the movie’s extras, was seen wearing a Superman costume.
    While the scene where the said Superman appears is reportedly a Halloween party, it does confirm that the Man of Steel exists in “The Batman” universe. “Sooooo @SamMcTweets just sent me this pic. Sooooo this means two things one this is 100% a Halloween party,” wrote a Twitter user who posted the picture. “And 2 DOES SUPERMAN F**KING EXIST IN THE REEVERSE!!!!!!”

    Superman was spotted on ‘The Batman’ set in London.

    “The Batman” continues filming in Liverpool though the city has been hit by new stringent COVID-19 restrictions. On Wednesday, October 14, U.K. government officials announced that the city and surrounding region would be the first to be put in ‘Tier 3’ restrictions – the strictest level – starting on Monday, meaning that many pubs and leisure businesses would shortly be shuttered, and household mixing banned.
    However, “the new new restrictions in Liverpool will not impact on filming in the city,” a spokesman for the council told Sky News. “The Film Office is working closely with every single production to ensure COVID-safe measures are in place and are being adhered to.”
    “The Batman” suspended production in March after the global pandemic hit the U.K., where it was filmed. Shooting on the superhero movie resumed in early September after the British government gave the green light for high-end TV and film productions to resume shooting, as soon as employers put coronavirus safety measures in place.
    However, the production was put on pause again after only three days because the lead star, Pattinson, tested positive for COVID-19. Filming resumed on September 17, after the British actor was cleared to return.
    Due to the production delay, the movie’s release date has been pushed back from October 1, 2021 to March 4, 2022.

    WENN

    Robert Pattison is also spotted back on the set after he was cleared to return following his COVID-19 positive test result, while Zoe Kravitz dresses up as a chic mourner.
    Oct 13, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Colin Farrell is completely unrecognizable under his Penguin disguise. The actor has been spotted on the set of “The Batman” and he was barely recognizable in his makeup and costume to portray the Batman villain a.k.a. Oswald Cobblepot.
    Farrell was seen during the filming of a funeral scene in Liverpool, England on Monday, October 12. He donned a button-up shirt with dark tie and a Mafia-style gray leather coat. He seemed to pile on the pounds or wear a fat suit for the role, but it’s his face scars, wrinkles and receding hairline that totally changed his appearance.
    He was joined by lead actor Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz during the filming that day. The Batman a.k.a. Bruce Wayne depicter bundled up in a long coat. He also wore a white shirt with a dark tie and a suit. His expression was all gloomy while ascending the stairs and a closer look at his face showed that he sported what looked like fake bruise on his cheek below one of his eyes.
    Kravitz, who plays Catwoman a.k.a. Selina Kyle, stood out among the mourners in her glamorous style. She looked chic in a shiny black trench coat, matching bow headpiece, edgy fishnets and lace-up knee-high boots.

    Robert Pattison is back filming ‘The Batman’ with Colin Farrell and Zoe Kravitz.
    The filming on “The Batman” resumed last month after it was put on pause again because Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19 in early September, just three days after they began filming at Leavesden Studios. The filming crew had to enter a two-week quarantine before filming resumed on September 17, and the British actor was cleared to return.
    Due to the production delays, Warner Bros. announced earlier this month that the release date for the movie has been pushed back five months from October 1, 2021 to March 4, 2022. Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” remake is now taking over the old date of “The Batman”.
    “The Batman” is directed by Matt Reeves and also starring Paul Dano as Batman’s villain The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright who is said to play James Gordon, and Peter Sarsgaard who is cast in a mystery role. The movie will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne than he was in previous movies.

  • 'The Batman' Pushed Back to 2022 Due to 'Dune' Delay

    Warner Bros. Pictures/Legendary Entertainment

    Warner Bros. is making more adjustments to its slate after moving Denis Villeneuve’s highly-anticipated remake to the Robert Pattinson-starring superhero movie’s old date.
    Oct 6, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Another day, another movie is getting a new release date due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has slowed down the domestic box office, despite the reopening of a number of theaters across the nation. Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” is the latest potential big blockbuster which is delayed after Warner Bros. earlier announced a new date for “Dune”.
    As expected, the Robert Pattinson-starring superhero movie is now pushed back to 2022 after it was forced to vacate its old date for the highly-anticipated sci-fi remake from director Denis Villeneuve. “The Batman” is now no longer scheduled to open on October 1, 2021, being pushed back five months to March 4, 2022. “Dune” is taking over “The Batman” old date.
    WB has also shifted the dates for other movies, including “The Matrix 4”, which is moved up several months. Initially set for April 1, 2022 release, it is now expected to bow in U.S. theaters on December 22, 2021.
    Ezra Miller’s “The Flash”, meanwhile, is moved to November 4, 2022 to give room to a yet-announced film on June 3, 2022. Another secret project from the studio is set for August 5, 2022 release. As for “Shazam! Fury of the Gods”, it has been pushed back from November 2, 2022 to June 2, 2023.

    Another superhero adventure film “Black Adam”, which is also based on a DC Comics character, and video game adaptation “Minecraft” have been left dealing with major uncertainty as the studio pulled off the two movies from the December 22, 2021 and March 3, 2022 date respectively.
    Other than “Dune”, Warner Bros. says the latest release date shuffle is due to production delays. “The Batman”, for example, suspended production in March after the global pandemic hit the U.K., where it was filmed.
    Shooting on the superhero movie resumed in early September after the British government gave the green light for high-end TV and film productions to resume shooting, as soon as employers put coronavirus safety measures in place.

  • Robert Pattinson 'Weirdly Enjoys' the Prospect of Messing Up 'The Batman'

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Instead of feeling pressured by the Caped Crusader role, the ‘Twilight’ alum ‘weirdly enjoys’ the possibility of messing up his superhero portrayal in the upcoming DC movie.
    Sep 30, 2020
    AceShowbiz – “The Batman” star Robert Pattinson isn’t fazed by the prospect of messing up the role – in fact, he “weirdly enjoys” it.
    The actor is set to debut as the Caped Crusader in the forthcoming 2021 flick and, speaking to Total Film magazine, he admits the idea that he can screw things up strangely excites him.
    “I weirdly enjoyed it during Twilight, the idea that you can mess it up. I guess I felt confident. I wanted to be on the big stage,” Robert shares. “There’s a slightly different feeling when you know loads and loads of people are going to watch something you’re working on.”

    He adds that “The Batman” is “not an origin tale, and you’re meeting him in the early days. And for me, what’s really important about this iteration is that you know a lot of the other stories are about how he had to master his fear and master himself in order to become Batman. And that in that Batman state, he’s sort of in his best self.”
    “I hope what’s different about what we’re doing is try and do it in exactly that sort of manner and then of course the other things that are from the earlier history of the context of him being the world’s greatest detective and how we got there,” he says.
    Production on “The Batman” recently resumed, two weeks after reports emerged that the leading man had tested positive for Covid-19 and the set had been shut down.
    Filming was previously halted for almost six months in March (20) due to the pandemic, with director Matt Reeves revealing he had only shot a quarter of the movie.
