Despite Matt Reeves confirming that The Batman had wrapped filming back in March, The Daily Record are reporting that the oft-delayed and eagerly anticipated reimagining of Gotham’s Knight will be returning to Scotland and York for reshoots in mid-July.
It’s not unusual for most films to need additional photography, perhaps none moreso than The Batman, whose filming was blighted by the initial outbreak of the global pandemic, and was again delayed last September when the new owner of the cape and cowl, Robert Pattinson, was reportedly struck down himself.
A source for The Daily Record claimed that both Pattinson, who plays Bruce Wayne, and Colin Farrell, who’s on bad-guy duties as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, are both expected on set in Glasgow next month, before the shoot heads to England for two-weeks in the picturesque city of York.
The Batman sees Robert Pattinson (The Lighthouse) donning the cape and cowl as Bruce Wayne/Batman alongside Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano (Escape at Dannemora) as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) as Jim Gordon, Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes) as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro (The Big Lebowski) as Carmine Falcone, Alex Ferns (Chernobyl) as Commissioner Pete Savage, Con O’Neill (Ordinary Lies) as Chief Mackenzie Bock, Peter Sarsgaard (The Killing) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson and Jayme Lawson (Farewell Amor) as Bella Real.
The Batman is due out on March 4th, 2022.
