“The Batman” star Robert Pattinson has tested positive for COVID-19, causing the temporary shutdown of the super hero movie, Vanity Fair reported.
Warner Bros. confirmed earlier Thursday that production would be paused after a member of production tested positive.
“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused,” Reports read.
Filming of the new movie called ‘The Batman’ had only resumed three days ago after being shut down in early March due to the pandemic.
The crew member said: ‘Everyone was looking forward to getting back to work and its come as a blow that production has stopped just three days after we began filming.
‘We have all been told to stand down until further notice and we are not expecting to be back filming for at least two weeks.’
The source said many of the crew found it ironic that the Batman movie had been stopped by coronavirus as the killer virus is thought to have originated from bats.
This is coming less than 24 hours after Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed that he and his family had also tested positive for the disease
The movie is planned for release in 2021.
