Vanity Fair says actor Robert Pattinson tested positive for the coronavirus – a few days after shooting resumed

Filming for Batman has been suspended again a few days after the Carnavirus lockdown resumed.

The filming break has been confirmed by Warner Bros., as U.S. directors say lead actor Robert Pattinson has tested positive for the virus.

Warner Bros. said members of the production team were self-deprecating but did not say who.

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

A spokesman for the studios said: “A member of the Batman production has tested positive for the Covid-19 and is disbanding according to established protocol. Filming has been temporarily suspended.”

British actor Pattinson, 34, contracted the virus a few days after shooting resumed near London after a six-month delay in shooting, Vanity Fair reported.

Batman was originally scheduled to be released in June 2021, but was delayed to October 2021.

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

Pattinson, who is also co-starring in Tenet’s current movie, did not comment on the report.
