The Batman Resumes Filming Following Robert Pattinson COVID Scare

It seems that the Bat-signal is lit again as production resumes on The Batman movie set. Variety brings words that Warner Bros. has greenlighted the filming to continue in the U.K. Production stopped on Sept. 3 after someone involved with the filming tested positive for COVID-19. Although the producers never revealed the name of that person, several reports indicated Robert Pattinson was the infected individual. All cast and crew members in close contact with the star of the movie immediately quarantined.

Several movie studios have implemented harsh protocols to meet the required safety standards to keep on shooting, although finding a working solution is not easy. But it seems that Pattinson has now recuperated and the work can go on.

Warner Bros. had already halted production on Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie back in March when most of the world had to stop after the COVID-19 outbreak. The delay forced Warner Bros. to move down the film’s debut from June to Oct. 2021, given that Reeves had shot only 25% of the movie. During that lockdown, Pattinson seemed to imply that he wasn’t exercising at all for his upcoming role. However, the first look at the film from DC FanDome last month revealed that the actor was obviously lying.

According to Warner Bros.’ plans, The Batman will hit theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
