THE BATMAN director Matt Reeves announced on Twitter Saturday that production has wrapped after a lengthy delay because of the pandemic. THE BATMAN star Jeffrey Wright also tweeted out the news.
Production was underway last March just three months into shooting when the Robert Pattinson-led film shut down in London. THE BATMAN resumed production last fall but was shortly shut down again when Pattinson reportedly contracted COVID-19. Waner Bros. also delayed the release date from June 2021 to October 2021.
Reeves tweet read, "#LastDay #TheBatman, and he included his DP, Greg Fraser's Twitter handle, accompanied with an image of the production slate in a box of props, which probably includes Easter Eggs.
Jeffrey Wright who plays GCPD’s James Gordon also tweeted out the news. "Gordon out....for now. One year exactly after the shutdown. Some ride," he wrote. Along with some fan art, he hinted at a sequel or at least he's hoping for one.
Starring alongside Pattinson as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Mad Max: Fury Road”) as Selina Kyle; Paul Dano (“Love & Mercy,” “12 Years a Slave”) as Edward Nashton; Jeffrey Wright (the “Hunger Games” films) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the “Transformers” films) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (“The Magnificent Seven,” “Black Mass”) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Jayme Lawson (“Farewell Amor”) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the “Planet of the Apes” films, “Black Panther”) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Dumbo”) as Oswald Cobblepot.
