Actor Robert Pattinson has tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports, halting production of The Batman.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros said: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”
Though the studio did not name the individual, Vanity Fair and The Guardian cited sources as saying that it is Pattinson who tested positive.
The film’s production was suspended in March due to the pandemic and national lockdown. Filming only restarted three days ago.
It was one of the first major productions to resume in the U.K. with enhanced safety and distancing measures in place.
In March, Andrew Jack, a famed dialect coach and actor who had been working on the movie before lockdown, contracted coronavirus and died.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman was originally supposed to hit theatres in June 2021.
