“Batman,” “Flash,” “Tom” Target Start Dates

Batman Flash Tom Target Start Dates

A couple of major Warner Bros. Pictures productions are lining up start dates later this year ahead of proposed releases in 2021 according to GWW which has been generally reliable when it comes to film production dates.

First up, they indicate Warners is targeting a November start of filming on “The Flash” movie. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” writers and “Game Night” directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley will pen and direct the film which still has Ezra Miller slated to reprise the role of Barry Allen. That film still doesn’t have a release date as yet.

Next, filmmaker Matt Reeves confirmed on Twitter in an impromptu Q&A session that “The Batman” will begin shooting sometime just before year’s end. He also confirms that after having handed in drafts to the studio, he’s been tweaking and fine-tuning the script. The movie is slated for a June 25th 2021 release.

Finally, GWW also reports that the new live-action/hybrid feature adaptation of the classic “Tom and Jerry” cartoons will begin filming June 10th at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK. Tim Story helms the film, which will blend live-action with 2D animated versions of the cat and mouse pair (who will be mute like in the cartoons), opens April 16th 2021.
