Filming has once again been halted on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman after a crew member tested positive for COVID-19 on-set.

Although excitement for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman was at an all-time high after the stunning first trailer for the new vision of the Caped Crusader arrived at DC FanDome, production has been temporarily paused on the film in the United Kingdom according to a Warner Bros. spokesperson. The crew had only been working for three days on the set in Leavesden, Herefordshire before an unknown member tested positive for the coronavirus. This has reportedly caused havoc with the schedule.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson issued a simple statement explaining that the crewmember is isolating and that filming has been paused. It must be infuriating for both cast and crew after The Batman‘s first shutdown back in March for two weeks before being postponed indefinitely. Recent set photos showed the crew unloading Robert Pattinson’s Batmobile ready for filming. Hopefully this new hiatus doesn’t cause further delays to the The Batman‘s release date.

“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under wraps, but we know that the project will revolve around Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. The Batman will also feature the hero making use of his detective skills more than what we’ve seen before in previous iterations of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment to a new Batman trilogy with Pattinson.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, the film stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.

The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding Timothee Chalamet and Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content.
