'Batman' production halted

Robert Pattinson tests positive for coronavirus

Vanity Fair reported that Pattinson was the individual who contracted the virus, citing unnamed sources


Filming of Warner Bros.’ “The Batman” movie has been temporarily paused after lead actor Robert Pattinson tested positive for the coronavirus. Warner Bros. confirmed in a statement that filming paused after a member of the movie’s production tested positive for the coronavirus, but would not comment on any individual worker’s health.

“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 studio said in a statement to Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair reported that Pattinson was the individual who contracted the virus, citing unnamed sources.

The filming pause comes just days after the movie resumed production at a studio outside of London after it shut down in March, along with much of the entertainment industry, due to the pandemic, according to Vanity Fair.

Pattinson, who starred in the “Twilight” franchise, is cast as Batman in the new movie. The cast also includes Paul Dano, Zoë Kravitz and Colin Farrell.
