Holy bad news, Batman! Vanity Fair reveals Robert Pattinson’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis halts all production on The Batman!
Earlier today, Warner Bros. issued a statement on a positive COVID test on the set of The Batman. “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 turns out, the mystery person is none other than Batman himself Robert Pattinson! No details on Pattinson’s condition are available at this time. The film only began production a few days ago. This is a major blow to getting the film back on track for it’s October 1, 2021 release date.
Matt Reeves‘ vision for The Batman finds the caped crusader attempting to discover who is behind a string of serial killings. On his journey, he runs into The Riddler (Paul Dano), a pre-Catwoman Selina Kyle (Zoë Kravitz) and Oswald Cobblepot (Colin Farrell). Moreover, the film stars Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as gangster Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as the ever present Alfred.
