    I'm not hip enough to know if the guy in the right panel is supposed to be a particular personality, but he is a perfect caricature.

    I'm intrigued by the idea of locking some influencers in a vault. Any connection to the outside world isn't needed though. ;)

    "Tik Tok Toe" from a few days ago could also have applied here.

    I feel like one of the vaults in New Vegas was something like this.

    I can't wait to watch this.

    Must have been a real pain finding that many tikstagramers all named Gary though.

    He's pretty much an amalgamation of what the vast majority of influencers and youtubes tend to look like. Coloured hair, stylish stubble, and faces you just want to punch.

    I was compelled to log in for the first time in... a long time? just to express my appreciation for the title.

    I wonder if the helmet would work as a mask substitute. Because he should of course be wearing one or the other while standing in what I assume is some isolated section of wilderness. Those cell phone signals might be having trouble reaching him, but the corona is everywhere!

    Seams like the easiest way to film a tv show or movie would be to quarantine the film crew for 2 weeks then crank out the work. Have one person who handles the food and do it like a dead drop. They go into a room put the food into the fridge. Leave. Then UV light kills everything in the room.

    And film the quarantine period, and then make back the extra costs by selling the footage to Bravo

    Every show suddenly has its own Making Of / Real World sister show

    I think you overestimate the ability of the average actor to follow a set of rules, no matter how important.

    One of them would slip out to a bar and plague the entire production.

    Okay, actually, that probably unrealistic. More like TWELVE of them would slip out to a bar...

    Yeah, you'd have to set the shoot location in the middle of fucken nowhere. York, North Dakota here we come.

    By controlling their locations, the cast and crew of The Batman can prevent any potential exposure to the virus that could have come from being out in a public space.

    I wonder how much of this will involve moving indoors what would have been shot outdoors. Interesting, considering how much more problematic indoors is for disease spread.

    Also, they're making a whole lot of movies for a market that has little to no open movie theaters. I know things will open back up eventually and these productions take time, but... I don't know. Just seems odd. Feels like they probably already have a bunch of content on the shelf to fill that gap when it opens back up.

    Some of it probably has to do with being contractually obligated to put out a movie for an IP every x number of years or else it reverts back to the original rights holder. I don't think Batman has that problem but I read once upon a time that was the deal with several Marvel properties that got sold off which is why we got garbage Fantastic 4 movies or continual Spiderman reboots.

    Also probably a combination of hiring people and paying them to not work or losing crew who have to seek new jobs. Both could easily end up more expensive than building a bubble to shoot the movie.

    Especially if you build a shitty bubble and just want to get production done before everyone gets sick (looking at you NBA owners)
