After a series of delays, there's no turning back now and the only way is forward as Robert Pattinson's The Batman is about to wrap up its production by March after 14 months.

Matt Reeves handles the direction and screenplay of the solo Caped Crusader film of The Batman. Robert Pattinson fills the shoes of the major vigilante of Gotham after Ben Affleck left the role due to personal struggles.

Matt Reeves' The Batman will circle the story of Batman from the time when Bruce Wayne is just starting before becoming the vigilante of Gotham and it will be set during the first few years of Batman fighting the crimes in the city exploring the corruption which may involve his own family and he will also be facing a serial killer, the Riddler.

This version of Pattinson as Batman is neither part of the DC Extended Universe nor the Arrowverse. It is a stand-alone film like that of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker.

The production of The Batman began last year, January 27, 2020, but was cut short in March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

When it started filming again in late summer, the production was again put to a halt as its main star, Robert Pattinson, tested positive for the coronavirus. After Pattinson's recovery, the film returned to production despite the strict lockdown in the UK.

With no more interruptions, the production is hopeful to finish filming by March but will still depend on the COVID situation. So long as none of the cast and crew tests positive for the coronavirus, the production will continue to be on track.

The film has time to spare as the schedule of the release would be 2022. That would give post-production an ample time of one year to finish the whole movie.

The film will be having a traditional theater release on March 4, 2022.
