It’s reported that director Matt Reeves will restart filming on The Batman in early September in the UK at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
The update comes from Variety via insiders and prior to this weekend’s big DC FanDome virtual convention which will have a featured panel on The Batman with Reeves and a look at the movie.
The Batman was only about two months into production when filming was forced to stop due to fears surrounding the coronavirus in March.
According to the report, the flick has approximately three months of material left to shoot where it is noted the movie could finish filming by the end of the year.
It’s said crew members have been constructing new sets for the movie this month, but it is also noted at the same time, due to fears surrounding the pandemic that filming could always be pushed back at any moment.
