Director Matt Reeves confirmed that cameras are now rolling on The Batman with a Tweet last night, and now Warner Bros. has shared official production details, including the full cast/character list...

The Batman director Matt Reeves took to social media last night to confirm that the highly-anticipated reboot was now filming in London, and Warner Bros. has now followed that up with some official production details.

There's not much in the way of a plot synopsis, unfortunately, but the cast list does reveal some previously unconfirmed roles. It seems Peter Sarsgaard is playing a Gotham City District Attorney, but it's not Harvey Dent as many fans speculated. He'll actually be playing a new character to DC canon named Gil Colson. Likewise, Jayme Lawson will portray "mayoral candidate Bella Reál."

Now that cameras are rolling we may see some more revealing set photos soon, or possibly even an official look at Robert Pattinson in the Bat-suit. In the meantime, check out the full press release below and keep an eye on CBM for updates.
