The Batman films amid Liverpool lockdown as Robert Pattinson suits up

The Batman filming has continued in Liverpool amid the city being plunged into lockdown with tier 3 restrictions in place.

Robert Pattinson, who’s starring as Bruce Wayne in DC’s upcoming movie, was spotted hopping into a muscle car looking somber as he shot a scene.

The actor was wrapped up for the cool weather as he donned a smart suit and coat – although his look was nothing compared to Colin Farrell, who was completely unrecognisable on set.

Another snap showed Robert, 34, chatting away to crew, with the actor masking up in between takes.

With filming permitted to continue in Liverpool, the crew could be seen sporting masks as they surrounded the car to shoot.

Liverpool is currently the only region in the UK to undergo tier 3 coronavirus restrictions.


The ‘very high’ tier means that pubs and bars not serving meals should close, households cannot mix indoors or outside, and travel should be limited to essential journeys.

A Liverpool City Council spokesperson told Metro.co.uk in a statement: ‘The new restrictions in Liverpool do not currently impact on filming in the city region.

‘The Film Office is working closely with every single production to ensure Covid-safe measures are in place and are being adhered to in accordance with rigorous industry protocols.’


In other snaps taken on set this week, fans were given a better glimpse of Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman suit and she looks completely fierce.

Elsewhere, the makeup and special effects teams might be up for some awards, considering the transformation Colin Farrell has undertaken in order to play The Penguin.

Production recently started up again after a six-month shut-down due to the coronavirus pandemic.


However, just three days after filming resumed, production halted again due to a ‘crew member’ being tested positive. It was later reported it was Robert who had tested positive.

Fans will also have to wait a bit longer than expected for the DC flick, with it being delayed until 2022.

Nevertheless, despite the movie being so hotly-anticipated, Rob is clearly not feeling the pressure.

In fact, he told Total Film magazine that he’s loving the idea he could mess it up.

‘I think this interpretation is incredible,’ he said. ‘There’s a slightly different feeling when you know loads and loads of people are going to watch something you’re working on.

‘I weirdly enjoyed it during Twilight the idea that you can mess it up. I guess I felt confident. I wanted to be on the big stage.’

Well, that’s definitely one way to look at it.

The Batman is set for release on March 4, 2022.
