Lead actor of ‘The Batman,’ Robert Pattinson, has tested positive for coronavirus, a source reveals. This news comes just days after the upcoming DC movie resumed filming.
The film follows the title character in his second year of fighting crime as he goes up against the Riddler, a serial killer wreaking havoc on Gotham City. He also seeks to rid the city of corruption but uncovers connections to his own family that he cannot overlook.
Filming for ‘The Batman’ began in Jan. 2020, but productions were previously shut down in March due to the pandemic.
“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” Warner Bros. said. “Filming is temporarily paused.”
If all goes well, productions will be up and running as soon as Pattinson and the rest of the cast and crew test negative for the virus.
