The director’s post comes after it was claimed on Wednesday that production would resume on The Batman in September, it was reported by Variety.
According to the publication cameras will begin to roll at the beginning of the month in Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, after filming came to a halt in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Reeves’ take on the caped crusader, which stars Robert Pattinson in the title role, was nearly seven weeks into its filming schedule in London at the time of its hiatus, meaning there is reportedly three months of material left to shoot.

It was claimed that because of this the film could finish filming by the end of the year, but it is yet to be seen if that will be the case.
The publication also reported that crews have been busy building new sets for the comic book film throughout August, so that they will be ready in time for filming to begin again next month.
MailOnline contacted Warner Bros’ representatives for comment at the time.
The Batman’s release date was delayed until October 2021, after production was halted on March 14 due to the global pandemic.
Earlier this year director Reeves confirmed production on The Batman was being put on hiatus for the foreseeable future.
Warner Bros originally said it was taking a ‘two-week hiatus’ due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Matt confirmed that filming was paused for the time being.
‘Yes, we have shut down till it is safe for us all to resume,’ he stated in a tweet, before the Hollywood blockbuster was bumped back.

Zoe Kravitz will appear as Catwoman, while Andy Serkis will play Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth.
