It’s official. The Batman has begun shooting, and now I just cannot wait to see this film.
Matt Reeves revealed this bit of news via his Twitter account by posting a clapper board from the first day of shooting.
He accompanied the image with the following caption: “#DayOne #TheBatman”.
So, the movie’s official filming which is brilliant news.
The film will feature Robert Pattinson as Batman/Bruce Wayne and he’ll be joined by one of the best casts I’ve ever seen assembled for a comic book movie.
First off, we have Zoe Kravtiz as Catwoman (excellent casting, may I add), Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Paul Dano as The Riddler and Colin Farrell as The Penguin.
I love this cast. It’s full of really talented and interesting actors who tend to do more independent films than big blockbusters.
The mere fact that Matt Reeves was able to convince Pattinson to play Batman is proof alone of how good this film’s script must be.
The Batman is now filming

Speaking of the film’s script, Farrell recently told Jimmy Kimmell how good Matt Reeves’ script was during an interview on his chat show.
Here’s what he had to say about Reeves’ The Batman script.
I’m still in the process of talking to Matt Reeves, who’s the director and who wrote the script, and wrote a really, really beautiful, dark, moving script. Really gorgeous.
This was when Jimmy Kimmel interjected and asked the actor whether he had read the whole script already, and this was when Colin Farrell revealed that he had done:
Yeah. Yeah. With a chain around my arm and a cryogenically frozen script. It’s all very hush-hush, but it’s a really beautiful script that he wrote and he has a real love for it, Matt. And we’re just in the process of finishing designing the aesthetic of the character.
Sounds like this The Batman movie is going to be really, really good.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to The Batman?
