The Batman director Matt Reeves confirmed during an interview with Deadline, that he won’t be changing anything for the movie during the production downtime due to the Coronavirus shut down. Reeves goes on to clarify that they haven’t officially started editing, even though a quarter of the movie starring Robert Pattinson as the titled character, has already been shot.
“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.”
When asked whether The Batman would need to be relocate outside of the United Kingdom, Reeves went on to say it’s too early to say:
“It’s way too early to say. I can’t imagine we wouldn’t finish in London. The situation is fluid.”
When asked if The Batman will be based off of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One or feature the Flying Graysons, Reeves responded with a laugh, stating:
“I can’t give you the answers to any of that.”
Reeves also goes on to shine a bit more light on the plot of the movie, by once again confirming it’ll be a noir-driven Batman, who’s investigating a particular case in the world of Gotham, also confirming it took him two years to work on that story:
“Noir-driven, in which Batman is investigating a particular case that takes us out into the world of Gotham. 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.”
The Batman is set to be released in theaters on June 25th, 2021.
