The Batman crew were seen busily preparing a new sprawling set for the superhero flick in a studio lot on Tuesday, new aerial shots have revealed.

Transforming the outdoor space into a intricately detailed recreation of Gotham City, builders had already put up streets, burnt-out buildings, and even its very own Batcave for Robert Pattinson's Caped Cursader to venture into.

Placed in a separate part of the film lot, the Batcave looked magnificent with its immense rock face which had been decorated with trees and shrubbery to exaggerate how vast the structure was.

A large pit had been built into the makeshift rock face with the floor painted a dark sleet grey to create a sense of foreboding when filming began on the completed set.

While the inside of the Batcave was not visible, a large hole had been built into the side of the set piece so that the crew could film Robert inside the lair from multiple angles.

Safety barriers had been put in and around the entrance of the cave as well as by the gap in the side so that the builders, as well as the cast and crew, wouldn't hurt themselves.

Due to the delays, the film's release date has been pushed back to March 2022.
