Robert Pattinson’s 'The Batman' director Matt Reeves misses film premiere due to Covid-19

Los Angeles: After several changes around the release calendar due to the pandemic, “The Batman” finally hit the red carpet for its world premiere at New York’s Lincoln Center on Tuesday evening.

Although Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz and other stars were in attendance, a major contributor to the evening was missing. Matt Reeves, the director of the new DC adaptation, could not attend the event after being diagnosed with COVID. Reeves explained his absence via a live video call before the film’s screening after the cast was introduced on stage, reports

“We were taking the film around and doing press tours. Despite double-vaccination and boosters, I got Covid,” Reeves said, sending a wave of despair through the crowd.

“The good news is I’m healthy, I’m fine. But I’m not with you. It’s going to be a huge heartbreak for me because this film means a lot to me. It was a five-year journey for me and me . I’m really excited that we’re sharing this with you tonight.”

“From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the incredible crew with whom we made this film. They are such incredible craftsmen, actors… (It’s) the best crew we’ve ever worked with. I know that many of you are there tonight. I’m so sad I’m not there with you,” Reeves continued before telling a joke.

“I want to thank each one of you by name, even though they told me that the film we made is too long.”

The premiere itself remained sensitive to Kovid, with seats remaining vacant among audience members.

“The Batman” will make its theatrical debut with a preview screening on Thursday evening. The Warner Bros. tentpole is already targeting the opening weekend in a big way, with analysts forecasting a three-day run in the range of $100 million and $125 million.
