Superman Spotted on the Set of “The Batman”

Location shoots for Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” took place this past weekend at various location around England, with a number of photos leaking online on social media.

A couple of photos show someone wearing a Superman costume… but it’s not what you think. The costume is obviously a store bought Halloween costume indicating that the scene being filmed is likely a costume party of some kind.

While some fans are adamant that this means Superman exists in this universe, it could simply be that Superman, Wonder Woman, and other characters are fictional comic book characters, and people are just dressing up in those costumes.

Directed by Matt Reeves and written by Reeves and Mattson Tomlin, “The Batman” stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson.

“The Batman” is scheduled to premiere in theaters on March 4, 2022.

I’m just throwing this thought out there, but what if in this version of Matt Reeves Batman’s universe, Batman exists but Superman and Wonder Woman and the rest of DC superheroes remain in the comic book realm? So while these people are dressed as Superman and Wonder Woman because they decided to dress up as their favorite superheroes for Holloween, Batman would be the only DC character who is set in this realistic world. So Batman would be real, but Superman and Wonder Woman might not be. I hope I’m wrong though.

That’s what they want us to think!

Ah, so it’s not actually Superman, it’s me after my fifth glass of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel.
But seriously, it’s probably meant as only a reference and potentially as a hint of world building; set it up and leave it there, even if you never use it. It might come in handy later or at the very least it will have people building on it with their imagination.

Eh, they have regular people dress up in Halloween costumes of heroes who exist in-story all the time. It’s the same as dressing up like a celebrity or a President in our world.
Just reminds me of when Peter Parker went as Spider-Man for Halloween on Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends (swapping out his actual mask for the store-bought one with a string on the back). Iceman was Captain America and Firestar was Spider-Woman. lol.
