Well…one of the biggest if not THE biggest blockbuster movie that was set to come out this year has also been delayed. The Batman is the latest big movie franchise to be forced to stop production due to the Coronavirus.
Warner Bros. has suspended production on director Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” for at least two weeks amid coronavirus concerns, the studio announced on Saturday. “The studio will continue to monitor the situation closely,” a spokesperson said. Production had begun in the U.K. earlier this year on the latest DC Films project, which stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.
