After several months filming of The Batman could finally continue, but now it had to be paused again shortly after the resumption. Covid-19 is to blame, which is said to have caught the main actor Robert Pattinson of all people.
The shooting of The Batman, the new DC film, had to be paused for almost six months in England. Because of the corona pandemic, those responsible at Warner Bros. could not guarantee the safety of the cast and crew. Less than a week ago it finally went on with new guidelines. But just as quickly, the shooting was stopped again: In an official message from Warner Bros it said:
"A member of The Batman production tested positive for Covid-19 and is now in isolation according to established protocols. The shooting is temporarily interrupted. "
Robert Pattinson has Covid-19
The authors of Deadline even emphasize that they can confirmwho it is: Robert Pattinson, Batman himself, is the cast member affected by the virus. An official statement from Warner Bros as to whether this is true has not yet been issued. Logically, Covid-19 does not stop at celebrities – Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji, F&F films) is currently in isolation with his family after a positive test result.
What do we know about The Batman so far?
Before the big break from The Batman, about a quarter of the film is said to have been shot, according to director Matt Reeves. The trailer for The Batman, which was unveiled at the DC Fandome, was also created based on this footage. The story will revolve around a young Batman who is only in his second year as a dark knight. He meets well-known characters such as the Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman. Similar to the bat man, they are also not yet established as iconic villains at this point.
