Robert Pattinson tests positive for Coronavirus, production for ‘The Batman’ halted

According to Vanity Fair, Robert Pattinson has tested positive for COVID-19, resulting in production being halted on the highly anticipated film, The Batman. News of the star's illness comes after Warner Bros confirmed that they are delaying production because a crew member tested positive. In a statement, the company shared, "A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused." This is the second time director Matt Reeves and others have had to take a break from their work. In March, they were in the middle of filming the movie in the United Kingdom when the coronavirus pandemic halted all production. Pattinson later told GQ that he was social distancing in a London apartment, rented for him by Warner Bros with girlfriend Suki Waterhouse. Despite the delay in production, Reeves was able to cobble together a teaser for the DC Comics picture at the virtual DC event in August.
