A total of  7 weeks of production on the film had taken place before the pandemic put things on hold, with insiders sharing that another three months is needed to shoot all the material for the film.

As previously reported, director of the “Batman” film Matt Reeves revealed back in April that they’ve “actually shot a quarter of the movie and I have been pouring through dailies, looking at takes, and what’s to come.”
