In the first meeting, [Reeves] was saying, we want to lean into the 'world's greatest detective aspect,' and be a detective noir movie

Pattinson said. "And, you know, normally when directors say that, they just do like a mood board, and it's just about the imagery."

In March 2021, Reeves announced that filming on The Batman had officially wrapped after significant delays in production due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

The Batman managed to avoid an R rating in the United States, and is currently rated PG-13 for "strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language and some suggestive material."
