Reeves’ tweet shows Farrell shrugging his shoulders in a befuddled state, accompanied by a caption reading –
“Wait – is that you, #Oz?”

New Set Pic
Pre-production on Reeves’s The Batman is currently underway, and it seems fans have their caught a look at the set. An image has revealed what appears to be a cathedral, most likely for a funeral.
Here it is –
Nova foto de set de #TheBatman onde estão construindo uma catedral para uma grande cena de funeral.
Detalhe: em Cardington (local onde estão filmando) é cheia de dirigíveis, que é uma das características da cidade de Gotham em várias mídias.

Recently, the film was looking for extras for a large funeral scene in the movie, and this image supports that rumor. The Batman has constructed a large cathedral in Cardington for the scene.
Notice the presence of airships outside of the cathedral. Blimps have appeared in various forms of media featuring Batman but were most prominent in Batman: The Animated Series, which our very own Stark reported, will serve as inspiration for the film.
The Batman will hit theaters on June 25th, 2021.
