COVID-19: Batman star, Robert Pattinson tests positive, halts film production


An early report on Thursday, September 3, 2020, said that production on Warner Bros’, “The Batman” had been halted due to a positive coronavirus test from a crew member, British actor Robert Pattinson.

Sources told Vanity Fair that, although Warner Bros is keeping mum, the lead and current “Tenet” star, 34, did indeed test positive for COVID-19.

Warner Bros said in a statement to the publication, “A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for COVID-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”

Reps for Pattinson did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

“The Batman,” which is set to be released in October 2021, had resumed shooting in the UK just days prior to this latest interruption.
