A new production start date for Matt Reeves’ Batman movie has been dropped by our pals over at DiscussingFilm, who say that Warner Bros. hopes to get cameras rolling by December 9th without mentioning a shooting location.

We’ve seen a couple of different production starts for Batman over the last year or so, but we’re cautiously optimistic this one might stick as it’s been a while since we’ve had a real wintery Batman movie going back to Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.
This comes after a recent tweet from Reeves suggesting that filming could begin by the end of the year.
While there have been plenty of casting rumors nothing concrete has surfaced via trades, if the film indeed starts filming in December it might be a few months before we actually get an official casting announcement from Warner Bros.
Plot details have been slightly scarce outside of talk of casting is aiming for much younger version of Bruce Wayne possibly in his 20’s. Variety has suggested that Penguin could be the main villain and Matt Reeves revealed it would include a rogues gallery (many villains).
Another rumbling from DiscussingFilm suggests that the film could be set in the 1990s, but has yet to be confirmed. However, could make for an interesting movie if they’re able to remove technologies like cell phones and high-speed internet.
Warner Bros. has officially given The Batman a release date of June 25th, 2021.
