Robert Pattinson positive for the coronavirus. Unfortunately, the producer shut down The Batman previously production. And it just days after the superhero drama resumed work at studios outside of London. Vanity Fair confirmed through a highly placed source that Pattinson was the individual who became sick. That, Warner Bros. would not comment on any individual worker’s health. They’re sharing only this statement: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating following established protocols.”
The production previously shutdown because of Robert Pattinson positive of COVID 19
While the studio wouldn’t comment on Pattinson or any other crew member’s health, WarnerMedia boss Ann Sarnoff told Deadline:
“We’re still in the middle of investigating what is the situation. We’re pausing temporarily for now until we have more information, but we have all the protocols set up to do contact tracing and hopefully get back up into production very soon.”
The production previously shut down, along with most other entertainment industry work, back in March when the quarantine lockdown first hit. Pattinson’s representative did not immediately return a request for comment.
Warner Bros. announced the temporary work stoppage in a press statement revealing that a crew member had 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.”
The Batman first shut down production in England was last March. It was when industry-wide shutdowns began due to the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus. Robert Pattinson is now positive for COVID-19.
Director Matt Reeves disclosed that filming on The Batman was only about 25% complete at the time of the March stoppage.
Since then, The Batman made a huge splash at August’s DC FanDome. And revealing the movie’s intense first trailer that left us wondering about its mysterious villain and the whereabouts of the Joker, while also clarifying when it’s set.
It is unfortunate that Robert Pattinson should be isolating himself so anybody won’t be in danger. And knowing that the production of The Batman shut down for an unspecific time. We hope Pattinson will get well really soon, so The Batman could finish very well. Let us know in the comment what you are thinking.
