Production for The Batman is currently happening in the United Kingdom after initially being shut down amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Then, on Thursday, Warner Bros. confirmed that a crew member has tested positive for coronavirus and production has been suspended. At the time of the initial report, the company did not confirm the person’s identity.
“A member of The Batman production has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement. “Filming is temporarily paused.”
However, Variety now reports that the crew member has been identified as Pattinson. No additional information has been released at this time.
Production for The Batman was seven weeks in when it was shut down due to the pandemic earlier this year. The film has approximately three months of shooting left on the schedule which will hopefully be complete by the end of 2020.
So far, we’ve received several other sneak peeks into the new film including the new Batsuit as well as the Batcycle and Batmobile. Last month, Reeves unveiled the official logo and another look at the Batsuit.
Due to coronavirus, The Batman‘s release has been delayed from June 25, 2021 to Oct. 1, 2021.
