The first proper look of The Batman was revealed during the DC Fandome and fans went wild not just because Robert Pattinson looked brilliant as the caped crusader, but also because the movie looking f*cking awesome. But the most mind-blowing part of the trailer was that all of it was made after shooting roughly 25 percent of the film because production was shut down in March due to the Coronavirus. Now, although fans are excited to see the movie back on track, things have been for Matt Reeves and his team.
Two weeks ago, it was reported that shooting for The Batman had to be shutdown because the star of the movie, Robert Pattinson himself had allegedly tested positive for COVID-19 (Yes, Vanity Fair had reported that it was Pattinson but th at was never properly confirmed by Warner Bros. or Matt Reeves or anyone TBH. Technically, it could’ve been anyone on the crew). Now, according to Variety
, filming has resumed in London. Apparently, during this period, sets were still being constructed. Only the cameras had stopped rolling. According to the Daily Mail, an insider has stated that,
“Today [Thursday] is the first day the main production unit has returned to filming and there seem to be no other hiccups at the moment.”
In addition to that, Pattinson’s fans reported that the actor has been spotted in London with Suki Waterhouse and he thankfully looks healthy.

I think people should stop messing around and stay home for two reasons. One, it’ll allow the people working on these great movies can get their done without getting sick. And two, it’ll decrease the spread of the virus, thereby making the whole process of watching a movie at the theater a safe one because nobody wants to watch The Batman in their home. Just go and take a look at that f*cking spectacular trailer again and tell me if that’s a movie you want to watch in your laptop or desktop. If you say you want to watch it on the small screen, you’ve no idea what you’re talking about. If you say you don’t want to, I whole-heartedly agree with you. Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy.
