Despite the backlash from locals after Liverpool entered the highest tier of the Covid-19 lockdown, Robert Pattinson filmed funeral scenes for The Batman.
The 34-year-old actor cut a sombre as he attended the funeral Gotham`s mayor. A co-star Zoe Kravitz, who plays the villainous Catwoman joined him as filming continued at Liverpool’s St George’s Hall.
Taking the role of a millionaire Bruce Wayne, Robert appeared at the mayor`s funeral swatches of mourners.
Many Liverpudlians have been infuriated by the decision for The Batman to continue filming and questioned how work can continue when the city being on a “very high” Covid-19 alert.
“There were hundreds in Liverpool today filming the new Batman movie, no masks, no social distancing; this is perfectly acceptable yet we can’t get married, go to a funeral or visit a relative in a care home!” one frustrated local wrote on social media.
Another local said: “They shouldn’t be there in the first place. We’re in tier 3 lockdown so if the government want us to follow the rules Hollywood actors and the crew should also be following the rules and technically shouldn’t be filming in Liverpool whilst in lockdown. Batman can suck it.”
@IainDale @piersmorgan @susannareid100 riddle me this.. as Liverpool has been placed on tier 3 can anyone explain why the filming of Batman was allowed!!! No masks, no social distancing, funnily enough not a single Tory MP on Merseyside! #ManagedDecline pic.twitter.com/h9Asynvw2v
