Robert Pattinson ‘s upcoming superhero film ‘The Batman’ will be resuming its shoot at the beginning of September. According to reports, the film will be shot at the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, United Kingdom.
Filming for the comic book adventure film was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic when it was roughly just seven weeks into the production.
The Matt Reeves directorial which is said to be a grittier take on the ‘Dark Knight’ mythos, is left with the shooting material of approximately three months. The film might be wrapped up by the end of this year. The construction of sets has been underway by the crew members of the film.
Soon after the production halt, the theatrical release date of the film has been pushed back by Warner Bros. Studios from June 2021 to October 1, 2021.
Robert Pattinson ‘s version is said to be grittier and a more realistic version of the Knight Crusader movies. The crew members were already spotted constructing sets for the movie this month sparking rumors that filming would resume shortly. But since things remain uncertain due to the pandemic, it could take several more weeks or months for the cameras to roll, the outlet noted.
In an interview in May, Pattinson said that he was stuck in London with his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse when filming for his movie was paused. He admitted at the time that he stopped working out.
“I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem,” Pattinson said. “You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the ’70s. Even James Dean—he wasn’t exactly ripped.”
Pattinson called his “The Batman” co-star Zoë Kravitz the day before the interview and she told him that she was exercising five days a week after they stopped filming.
“Literally, I’m just barely doing anything,” Pattinson said before sighing.
The “Twilight” star’s statement irked the netizens who expected him to exercise for the movie. Pattinson received intense backlash on Twitter, with some calling him lazy for not preparing physically for his superhero role.
