Robert Pattinson tests positive for COVID-19, halting ‘The Batman’ production

Production of ‘The Batman’ has halted as its star has tested positive for the virus.

Actor Robert Pattinson has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a Vanity Fair report. The report also notes that as a result, production of The Batman has once again halted — production also shut down in March at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Warner Bros. has confirmed that a member of the production has tested positive, but declined to specify any further. The statement they sent along reads:

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly movies podcast, Adventures in Movies!

A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.

The Batman has been announced for a 2021 release date, and Warner Bros. shared a trailer for the film at DC FanDome last month. The movie, directed by Matt Reeves, will show Bruce Wayne early in his crime-fighting career, in just year two of his endeavor as “The Batman”. Alongside Pattinson as the eponymous Batman, the movie is set to co-star Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin.

Best wishes go out to Robert Pattinson and his family. We at AIPT hope for a speedy recovery.
