Sounds Like The Batman And The Witcher Will Restart Productions Soon

The Batman Test Screening Descriptions Plus DC Fandome Teaser

The Batman among many films likely to restart production.

I got some good news for many of you. While the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected lives worldwide, there does appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel. At least, that’s what it feels like as restrictions start to ease up. That’s exactly what’s starting to happen for the film industry in the United Kingdom. According to Deadline, the UK government will allow high-end TV and film productions move forward as soon as coronavirus safety measures have been put in place.

So, which productions will be able to start up work soon? Likely contenders are The Batman and The Witcher, both of which were shot in the U.K. As far as what sort of measures will be put in place to ensure a safe set…that’s not too clear at this point. 

“The government is working closely with the screen sector to understand how different types of productions can comply with social distancing guidelines, and give confidence to people in the TV and film industries that there are safe ways in which they can return to work,” a DCMS spokesperson said.

Of course, the problems won’t simply evaporate overnight. At the end of the day, we don’t know what the future holds for the pandemic. There have been many concerns over a potential second wave, and if they don’t take safety measures seriously, the lockdown could be extended for much longer. That, or we can just end up with a lot more deaths, which apparently a lot of people are totally cool with. 

But I am very interested to hear just when The Batman will start up production. Very recently, star Robert Pattinson admitted that he was hardly doing anything to keep his Batman physique. Will we be seeing him take his workout into overdrive, or will see Bruce Wayne inflate or deflate from scene to scene in the upcoming film? I can’t help but wonder if Warner Bros. or Matt Reeves were facepalming when they read that quote and immediately put forth a plan to get Pattinson in Bat shape.

Either way, it sounds like the productions are on their way back for the time being. How do you feel about the U.K. opening up production? Let us know your thoughts down below!
