‘The Batman’ star Robert Pattinson reportedly tests positive for COVID-19

Reports began to circulate this week that a member of The Batman production had the coronavirus, and as a result filming was shut down — but no one knew that it was the movie’s star, Robert Pattinson, that had been infected.

Vanity Fair broke the news Thursday afternoon that it was the lead actor who’d tested positive for COVID-19, clamping down the movie set mere days into production.

Located outside of London, England, the studios had just reopened following the six-month coronavirus pandemic lockdown. There had been no shooting since March.

“A member of The Batman production has tested positive for COVID-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused,” movie studio Warner Bros. said on Thursday, without elaborating.

According to some “highly placed sources,” Vanity Fair confirmed that it was indeed Pattinson who tested positive for the virus.

Directed by Matt Reeves (Planet of the Apes), the movie also stars Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro and Andy Serkis.

The Batman is set for release in 2021.

Global News has reached out to Pattinson’s representatives for further details, but didn’t hear back by time of publication.
