Due to the coronavirus crisis, the shooting of Matt Reeves’ superhero drama The Batman is also stalled. The film stars Robert Pattinson in the lead role. Recently, there were reports that Matt’s film will face a major delay in its release date due to delay in the shooting and later, post production work.
Recently, a fan asked the Cloverfield director about the status of the film and if there’s any delay. A fan tweeted to the filmmaker, “@mattreevesLA just curious if shooting #TheBatman has experienced any delays and hope all of the cast and crew are safe and sound!!”.
The Batman director replied to the person, “Yes, we have shut down till it is safe for us all to resume… Everyone safe for the moment, thank you for asking, and stay safe too…”. Many production housed had planned to call off the shoots for 2 weeks. But Matt Reeves mentioned that the shoot won’t be happening till it is safe out there. Hence, it can be said that the shooting will be delayed more than one expected it to be.

Along with Robert Pattinson, the film also stars Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright and Colin Farrel. There are reports of Johnny Depp essaying the role of Joker in the film.
Earlier, about the film, the Twilight actor told Sunday TODAY, “There’s a part of me that just thinks it’s impossible to be what happened with Twilight because it was so sudden. ’m hoping it won’t be people hanging out outside my place. I just think I’m kind of boring and old now.”
