THE BATMAN Remains On Hold In The UK Despite Recent Lifting Of COVID-19 Restrictions
The UK recently lifted restrictions to allow productions to get back to work in the country, but Warner Bros. is holding off on resuming filming on the likes of The Batman and Fantastic Beasts 3...
Following the news that Warner Bros. is laying out plans to resume work on The Matrix 4, a new report from Deadline sheds some light on what's happening in the UK with The Batman and Fantastic Beasts 3. Unfortunately, it's not good news for either one of those movies right now.
While the country has lifted restrictions which will now allow work to resume on both films and TV shows, it seems Warner Bros. is holding off (presumably because of ongoing safety concerns).
"Deadline hears that Warner Bros.’ London productions such as The Batman and Fantastic Beasts 3, remain on hiatus." In other words, they're not going to start shooting any time soon, and that's probably because there's a lot of uncertainty in the UK about whether the Government has started sending people back to work too soon and the ramifications which come with that.
A studio like this one will want to make sure that the cast and crew are 100% safe, as it would be a disaster for COVID-19 to make its way through a production like The Batman.
For now, we're just going to have to wait and see what happens as there's so much uncertainty surrounding, well, everything. With any luck, the studio is plotting out how work can resume on these movies, because The Batman has already been pushed from next June to October due to the pandemic.
