Matt Reeves’ “Batman” Movie Set To Start Filming At End Of 2019
It’s going to be a strange new frontier for DC Comics movies in 2020, with their goal to make films stand-alone and less intertwined like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Shazam” has started that trend and the next “Wonder Woman” and “Aquaman” films will continue it. We also know that the upcoming “Batman” movie will live on its own merits, and we now know when it will begin production.
According to a tweet by director Matt Reeves, “The Batman” begins filming “sometime around year’s end.” While that is vague at best, it does mean we can most likely expect this as an early Summer film in 2020.
Another Tweeter asked him if the movie might be inspired by Roman Polanski’s 1974 movie “Chinatown”, which Reeves responded to and said he watched the film before writing the script. This also gives us a little bit more of an idea of how the tone of the movie may be.
