The Batman Shoot Comes To A Halt As Robert Pattinson Tests Positive For Coronavirus
Tenet star Robert Pattinson recently came back on the sets of The Batman. For the first time ever, he is slipping into the costume of a superhero, however, the film is facing many hurdles. First, due to the outbreak of Coronavirus and the following lockdown, shooting for The Batman came to a halt and now, it is being reported that a crew member has tested positive for COVID-19 and hence the shooting has been suspended. This crew member is none-other-than, the lead star himself Robert Pattinson, say the reports.

VanityFair.com reports that Warner Bros refused to divulge details about who tested positive for Coronavirus on sets, but confirmed that the filming for The Batman has come to a halt. A statement by Warner Bros reads, "A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused."

It was recently that Robert Pattinson started shooting for The Batman in London. A few pictures of him dressed in the Superhero suit had also gone viral on the internet. The film was initially slated to release in June 2021, however, due to the delay in the shooting schedule thanks to Coronavirus, the release date of the film got pushed to October 2021. Now that the shooting has once again come to a halt, we wonder if there will be another change in the release date of the film.

The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves. Stay tuned to SpotboyE for more updates. (Also Read: The Batman Teaser: Netizens Go All Crazy Witnessing Actor Colin Farrell's Unrecognisable Avatar In This Robert Pattinson Starrer)
