Breaking Bat News: The Batman Returns to Production

It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, The Batman is finally (again) returning to production after it's halt due to the coronavirus crisis. Hopefully, second time is the charm for this production restart.

After several years of languishing in development hell, it appeared that Matt Reeves' The Batman had finally gone into production. To clarify just how long this movie was in development, this film was initially planned as a project under the control of Ben Affleck. He was originally supposed to direct and star before vacating the role due to personal troubles. The Batman was handed over to Matt Reeves to finish developing the project. Eventually, Robert Pattinson was set to take over the cape and cowl as a vast set of excellent actors have taken on some of the most iconic villain roles in the Batman rogues gallery. But production finally started in January of this year and they managed to make twenty-five percent of the film before the entire world shut down back in March. 

Earlier this month after a well received trailer, production started up again only to be shut down three days later due to Robert Pattinson allegedly contracting Covid-19. But after a quarantine and a production shutdown, the film is now back on track and work is starting up again. Let's just hope that the cast and crew are safe and taken care of during these troubling times. The Batman has a tentative release date of October 1st, 2021 and we are excited to see the film on the big screen in the safest possible way.
