With Robert Pattinson getting cleared last week to return to production following the shocking news that he tested positive for COVID-19, Matt Reeves' The Batman is gearing up to resume filming and the film's cast and crew are apparently headed to the Midwest next month.

According to Production Weekly's new listings, The Batman is scheduled to film in Chicago this coming October. The good folks over at Screen Magazine indicates that the shoot will happen across two weekends — from October 16th-18th, and October 24th-25th respectively. Other details about the shoot are being kept under wraps but it's safe to assume that Pattinson and possibly some of his co-stars like Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, and Paul Dano are all joining him to film additional scenes.

Pattinson testing positive for COVID-19 a number of weeks back brought tension to a lot of fans who are eagerly awaiting Batman's rebirth on the big screen. Thankfully, it's all systems go once again and they have enough time to finish filming additional scenes and proceed immediately to the grueling post-production process before the project releases next year. So far, the reception for "Battinson" has been generally positive, and there's clearly no doubt with regard to his capability of giving justice, not to mention a little does of vengeance to the caped crusader.

Being a huge Batman geek myself, I'm beyond excited to see what's next for the character and how they're going to reimagine it. I'm pretty sure Reeves' take, as well as Pattinson's portrayal, will blow us away come next year. I can't wait to see this film!

The Batman is scheduled to drop in June 2021!
