As production for the DC Extended Universe's The Batman has picked up speed over the past few weeks, sneaky and eagle-eyed fans have been all over the internet sharing as many new behind-the-scenes videos and photos as possible. Some of the most exciting action has shown off Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz bike-riding through the streets of Chicago, Pattinson's stunt double jumping off a building in Liverpool, and even teases of the villainous ploys of Gotham's criminal underworld .

The new solo movie is set to dive deep into the political workings of Gotham City, in a very similar light to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. More new set video has just been released confirming this, including a tease of a high profile political debate with one of the film's most intriguing stars.


The @TheBCEU Twtitter account has just posted a new behind-the-scenes video from the set of The Batman, which features Jayme Lawson's Bella Reál and Rupert Penry Jones' Don Mitchell engaging in a mayoral debate on TV. The video comes from the film's set outside St George's Hall in Liverpool, UK, and there is no sound that comes with the footage.

The full 1-minute, 47-second video can be seen in the tweet below:


While there is no way to tell exactly what's being debated between the two political rivals in this video, it's still a great tease laying out the kind of politics that will be explored through the course of this movie. Bella Reál is almost a complete mystery to fans at this point in time, although it seems as though she is on the right side of the law, and it will be interesting to find out exactly how influential she is to both Bruce Wayne and Gotham City as a whole. There is still also the possibility that she's the famous Barbara Gordon undercover , considering the rumors that her character has a close tie with Jeffrey Wright's Commisioner Jim Gordon .

No matter how important this video turns out to be in the plot of The Batman , it keeps fans on their toes and excited for more as the shoot continues on. Robert Pattinson's new solo movie is set to premiere in theaters on March 4, 2022.
