Matt Reeves Gives an Update on THE BATMAN


Hey Now!  Jett here.

I hope everyone reading this is hunkered down and is safe as safe can be during this GD COVID-19 pandemic.

I’m not sure when THE BATMAN will get back to filming, but director Matt Reeves provided a bit of an update of what the hell is going on via DEADLINE.  Here are a few blurbs…

On how much of THE BATMAN was filmed and how much post he’s doing while waiting to resume production…

We’re not officially editing right now. We’ve actually shot a quarter of the movie and I have been pouring through dailies, looking at takes, and what’s to come.

Does he plan to “tweak” the script while on hiatus…

It took me two years to work on that story, and it’s a very specific mystery noir that’s been really thought-out by me and my partners.

In other words, NO!

On whether or not THE BATMAN might move production from London/UK to somewhere else to finish…

It’s way too early to say. I can’t imagine we wouldn’t finish in London. The situation is fluid.

While I’m 100% sure that THE BATMAN is going to be completed and released, I’m not sure if it’s going to make it’s June 25, 2021 release date.  Right now, I figure they still have a bit of a cushion, if you will, which would allow them to meet the original release date even if it doesn’t resume filming until, maybe, late June/early July.

Regardless, BOF’s THE BATMAN WATCH PARTY is going to happen even if TB is pushed back to like…say… Wednesday, November 24, 2021?
