Shooting of the much anticipated film resumed in London this week after a five and a half month break for the lockdown
Production of Matt Reeves’ The Batman has been halted only three days after recommencing. The sudden suspension is due to Robert Pattinson testing positive for Covid-19, confirmed Deadline.
Warner Bros issued a statement saying: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.” No further information was provided by the studio in protecting their workers’ privacy.
Shooting of the much anticipated film resumed in London this week after a five and a half month break for the lockdown.
“It’s a criminological experiment. He’s trying to figure out what he can do to finally change this place. You see that he’s charting what he’s doing, and he’s seeing he isn’t having any of the effect that he wants to have yet,” Reeves said recently at the DC Fandome event that revealed the first trailer. “The murders start to happen, and the murders start to describe a history of Gotham. It only reinforces what he knows about Gotham, but opens up a whole world of corruption that went much further.”
The Batman is slated for release on October 1, 2021.
