Production in the UK on The Batman starring Robert Pattinson has been halted by the British star after allegedly testing positive for Kovid-19.
The shooting of Warner Bros. Leavesden resumed after a five-month halt due to an epidemic lockdown.
Warner Bros. did not comment on reports that it was Pattison who tested positive, as first reported at Vanity Fair.
The length of the production halt depends on how integral the infected person is to the production and how long they need for self-isolation.
If it is the lead actor, Pattinson will need about 10 days, meaning Batman may not resume until mid-September. About three months to go for shooting.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros issued the following statement on Thursday (September 3) ahead of the Vanity Fair report: “A member of Batman’s production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolated according to established protocols. ” Filming has been temporarily halted. “
The latest iteration of the superhero story features some of the most familiar antagonists of The Caped Crusader – The Riddler, Penguin, and Catwoman – and some of the original stories in relation to their character development.
Paul Dano plays the Riddler, Zoe Kravitz Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin. Revolving the main cast are Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, and John Turturro.
Batman is scheduled to open on October 1, 2021. It was unclear at the time of writing whether Warner Bros. would stick to that date given production delays.
