A new rumor details that Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves are shooting multiple Batman movies back to back.
The rumor comes from YouTuber Grace Randolph.
“I’m hearing that they are shooting multiple Batman movies back to back which makes it even more like the Jeph Loeb’s comics that Matt Reeves has said he’s taken inspiration from.”
As far as I know, Reeves has not specifically stated The Long Halloween is the inspiration for his Batman film, but it is the current rumor.
Reeves did reveal that The Long Halloween is one of his favorite Batman comics alongside Year One, Dark Victory, and Ego.
There are many… I love Year One, The Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Ego… Many others… Neal Adams is awesome… Love the original Kane and Finger… I could go on…! 😀 https://t.co/WkDHyj5YNA

As for filming multiple Batman films back to back, it’s not unheard of. Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were filmed back to back at Pinewood studios in Georgia.
The final two films in the Harry Potter series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2 were also filmed back to back. Even The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were filmed back to back.
Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy was also filmed back to back.
James Cameron is currently filming multiple Avatar films back to back as well.
The idea that they would film multiple Batman films back to back is not unheard of.
Not only does Randolph note they are shooting multiple Batman movies back to back, but she also says that Batman actor Robert Pattinson is having trouble bulking up.
“But I’ve also heard that Robert Pattinson is having a little bit of trouble bulking up. I think it’s actually probably impossible for him to fully bulk up because he just has a slight build.”
“I think it’s hilarious that they are like, ‘Maybe if we gave him a few more weeks he might bulk out.’ If he hasn’t bulked up by now he’s not going to bulk up. Just accept you have a skinny Batman and deal with it.”
What do you make of this new rumor that they could be filming multiple Batman films back to back? Do you think Pattinson might be struggling to bulk up for Batman?
