We already have an idea of the timeline in which The Batman will be set considering that director Matt Reeves has confirmed that we'll be seeing the Caped Crusader in his early years. However, a new set photo may have revealed the exact year in which the DC flick will be set.
The photo was revealed by Comicbook.com from the set of The Batman and it features an official Gotham City taxi cab medallion which proclaims itself to be licensed for the year 2019. Check it out here.
It's interesting to note that The Batman is set in 2019, which is about two years after the events in Justice League where a completely different Batman was played by Ben Affleck. On the other hand, it also confirms that the Robert Pattinson film is in a completely different universe from the DC Extended Universe.
There have been several set photos floating around all over the internet since The Batman resumed production with Pattinson. It was previously reported that there have been interesting pictures taken of Zoe Kravitz in action while we also got a better look at Colin Farrell's Penguin. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
The Batman will also star Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Barry Keoghan, Jayme Lawson, and Andy Serkis. The movie is currently in production and is expected to be completed by early next year. It is then scheduled for release on March 4, 2022.
