Warner Bros has confirmed that The Batman is back up and running. This comes two weeks after the production shut down after star Robert Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19. No word yet if Pattinson is back on set at Warner Bros Leavesden as the studio doesn’t comment on staffers’ personal status.
“Following a hiatus for COVID-19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the UK,” said a studio rep-issued statement.
Production had restarted on Batman earlier this month after a 5 1/2-month pause due to the pandemic. Three days in, Pattinson turned up positive with the coronavirus.
Following Batman‘s initial shutdown, director Matt Reeves told Deadline that he had a quarter of the movie in the can and reportedly has another three months to shoot. That said, he delivered a teaser with a lot of stuff at DC Fandome recently for the film’s scheduled October 1, 2021 release date.
