Robert Pattinson ‘tests positive for coronavirus’ pausing Batman filming once again

The filming of Batman was suspended for the second time, days after it resumed following the coronavirus lockdown.

The reason for the halt this time was because actor Robert Pattinson tested positive for the virus. Warner Bros said the production team was self isolating.

Filming began in Glasgow earlier this year but was halted due to the pandemic.

A spokeswoman for the studios said: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”




Vanity Fair said British actor Pattinson, 34, caught the virus days after shooting resumed near London, after a six-month delay to filming.

The Batman was initially due for release in June 2021 but has been delayed to October 2021.

In the latest film, directed by Matt Reeves, Twilight star Pattinson follows in the footsteps of Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton and George Clooney in playing the Gotham City superhero.
