Batman actor Jeffrey Wright thought it was only a creepy moment when the film’s shooting was halted last year. Production is the next step for DC and Warner Bros. Towards a somewhat loose continuity between films.
The film is reportedly set in Earth-2, which means we know a brand new Batman in the form of Robert Pattinson. In addition, there’s a new cast starring actor Wright as Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon.
During an interview at the Telluride Film Festival, Wright talked about the chaotic experience the film had in shooting. Wright says every time an actor coughs, “everyone saw him”.
Overall it was not a great experience:
“I had a conversation with [producent Dylan Wright], where I asked: How do we proceed now? There were no travel restrictions from the UK then, but the numbers increased. I called my agent and said: We have to get out of here, we may be isolated here and there is little chance that we will continue shooting.”
They turned out to be prophetic words, because the recording of Batman Stopped many times.
