Warner Bros. has already compensated for The Batman’s shooting schedule by pushing the film’s release date back to March 2022. Provided that there are no more issues in production over the next five months of shooting, this will give the film at least 12 months in post-production.
Colin Farrell, who stars as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin in The Batman, recently appeared on The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show where he discussed his role in the film. Farrell said during the interview that he was about to return to shooting on The Batman in the coming week, and that production is now scheduled to run on the film until February 2021.
Recent set photos from The Batman have proven that the film is taking plenty of precautions on set. It’s unknown whether the pandemic has required re-writes of any big moments in the film, but large groups of extras have been shown filming scenes and all have been wearing masks to comply with COVID-19 safety guidelines. Colin Farrell’s return is also a good sign that production is going smoothly.
