Batman Filming Paused After Robert Pattinson Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Filming for The Batman has been suspended again, days after it resumed following the coronavirus lockdown.

The pause in filming, confirmed by Warner Bros, is because lead actor Robert Pattinson has tested positive for the virus, according to US media.

Warner Bros said a member of the production team was self-isolating but it did not say who.

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.

Pattinson, who also co-stars in the current cinema hit Tenet, has not commented on the reports.

Officials determined that the dimensions of the vehicle “exceeded acceptable norms”.
Its owner, an unnamed 32-year-old man from Moscow, is now being investigated on three different charges, relating to the vehicle’s lack of documentation, its alleged excessive weight or size, as well as its irregular features that are not permitted on road-driven vehicles.
A similar car was recently sold on Russian car-trading website Auto.ru. The “Batmobile 2018 I” was supposedly imported from the US to Russia in 2018, where additional features, including electronics, were later added. Russian business news website RBCRBC reported that the car’s advertised price in late 2019 was 55 million roubles (840,000 dollars).
The name of the owner was not revealed and no suggestion has been made of his involvement in crime-fighting or vigilantism of any kind.
