It was revealed that a handful of film productions from Disney would be taking a production pause due to concerns connected to COVID-19, including The Little Mermaid and Jurassic World: Dominion which were set to shoot at Pinewood Studios UK.
Now, there is world from Deadline that The Batman is going on hiatus for two weeks after attempting to change locations to Liverpool, England.
Warner Bros. joins other studios in temporarily stopping production on big pics, the latest being the studio’s reboot of The Batman starring Robert Pattinson in the title role.
Word was that production was re-locating from London to Liverpool in the UK and out of safety in the current coronavirus climate, Warners just decided to halt shooting for the time being. Again, no one from the cast or crew has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The studio also made a statement.
“Warner Bros. Pictures feature production of The Batman will be on a two-week hiatus starting today. The studio will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
I think we should expect a longer delay but at this point nothing is official beyond this two week break.
Warner Bros. is also gearing up to shoot Fantastic Beasts 3 in Watford, England next week, which likely won’t happen now.
The Batman was originally set to be released on June 25th, 2021, but who knows if they’ll be able to hit that date if they see longer delays on filming.
