The Caped Crusader has met an enemy he cannot defeat:
According to Vanity Fair, Robert Pattinson has tested positive for the COVID-19. As a result, filming of The Batman has been halted… just days after the superhero blockbuster resumed work at studios outside of London.
Warner Bros. has not confirmed this news specificially, but the production studio did tell Vanity Fair in a statement:
“A member of The Batman production tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”
This is the second time the wildly anticipated has been forced too stop production, with the first being in March as the coronavirus pandemic swept through the globe.
The film, whose trailer lit the Internet on fiire just a few years ago, is scheduled to star Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the character’s early years as a detective and vigilante.
The Batman is slated to open in theaters on Octoberr 1, 2021.
But no one can say for certain whether this date will be met and shooting/editing will be finished in time.
