A stunt dressed as Batman has been pictured atop the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool – despite strict Level 3 coronavirus restrictions imposed in the city.

Photographs of the production raised questions about how is able to move forward after Liverpool entered the government’s highest level of COVID-19 measures.

People are prohibited from socializing with other households indoors and outdoors.

Bars and pubs that don’t serve meals are closed – as well as gyms, betting shops and casinos.

A spokeswoman for Liverpool City Council previously said: ‘The new restrictions in Liverpool are currently having no impact on filming in the city area.

“The film office works closely with each production to ensure that COVID security measures are in place and are followed in accordance with rigorous industry protocols.

Production on the film began in Glasgow earlier this year, but has been halted due to the pandemic.

It resumed months later but was again suspended as a precaution against the coronavirus.

The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, will see Pattinson, 34, follow in the footsteps of actors such as Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Val Kilmer, Michael Keaton and George Clooney playing the Dark Knight.

The film also stars Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as Gotham City’s Chief Police Commissioner Gordon.
