It would seem that filming may be kicking off slightly sooner than reports had indicated for Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Batman fans will know that Jeffrey Wright is on tap to play Commissioner Jim Gordon in The Batman. This morning, the actor tweeted out the beginning of his journey to film the upcoming movie. When news of the casting first broke, many were waiting on Matt Reeves himself to confirm the news. He has made a habit of cosigning the news that may roll through different publications. However, the Westward actor will join Robert Pattinson who will don the cowl as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and a host of others on the big screen.
Woke up jet lagged at 10pm thinking I was late. 4:45am now. Off to Gotham.🦇

This was later followed up by a tweet from Luiz Fernando who has a track record for accurate information from back during Shazam!. According to his information, The Batman has indeed started production and Wright is filming exterior shots in Central London on Sunday and Monday.
Exactly. Contrary to some reports that #TheBatman would start filming later on this month, the new #MattReeves flick has already started filming, and #CommissionerGordon will be filming this Sunday and Monday in location in Central London, not in a studio. 👀 https://t.co/zsXiwW4j7w

There are no reports as of yet as to whether or not Robert Pattinson has filmed any shots yet. What will be interesting to monitor is if Warner Bros. will release an official photo of Pattinson in the Batsuit before he films any exteriors.
With filming apparently underway, prepare for an onslaught of reports as Matt Reeves finally tackles The Batman.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
