Robert Pattinsons "The Batman" with "The Mandalorian" VFX Tech
The Batman is currently filming in the UK!
Robert Pattinson's The Batman uses the same visual production techniques as the Disney Plus series The Mandalorian.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. used Industrial Light & Magic's virtual production techniques for Matt Reeves' directed The Batman. Jon Favreau used the same VFX techniques in Disney's live action The Lion King before using them in The Mandalorian. Batman cameraman Greig Fraser worked on three episodes of The Mandalorian so he's already familiar with the technology.
The Batman is currently filming in the UK. Current set photos show Robert Pattinson in and out of his Dark Knight costume. The set snaps also gave fans a look at Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, Colin Farrell as The Penguin and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.
The details of the plot for The Batman are being kept under wraps, but we know the project will center on Robert Pattinson as the younger Bruce Wayne, who records Batman during his formative years as the protector of Gotham City. The Batman will also feature the hero using his detective skills more than what we've seen before in previous iterations of the character. It is also expected to be the first in a new Batman trilogy starring Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, Robert Pattinson as Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as the penguin.
The Batman is currently slated to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Visit Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Robert Pattinson's young Dark Knight and Richard Madden, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
