The Batman Resumes Filming Following COVID-19 Necessitated Shutdown

The Batman has resumed filming following a production shutdown after Robert Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19. Now, to be fair, no one confirmed that Robert Pattinson was the one who tested positive. But it is the name being thrown around the most right now. Nor has anyone else mentioned if there were other positive results on set.

A Warner Bros spokesperson only had this to say, “Following a hiatus for COVID 19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K.”

This is the third time that filming had resumed on the highly anticipated Matt Reeves directed film. The Batman began filming in Jan, but was shut down in March due to the pandemic. It resumed filming at the beginning of Sept., but was shutdown again after a positive COVID-19 test.

Hopefully, third time’s the charm in keeping the movie up and running until filming has been completed. The Batman also stares Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farrell, and Andy Serkis in this take on the iconic character’s younger years.

The Batman will be released on Oct. 1, 2021.
