Vanity Fair first broke the news, citing  a source close to Pattinson (34) and the production. Warner Bros. confirmed the pause in a statement, but did not offer any information on the identity of the infected member of production.

Filming for the upcoming Batman began in January 2020 under director Matt Reeves. The pandemic shut down the filming in mid March.

They had just resumed filming in Leavesden studio near London a week ago.

In addition to Pattinson, The Batman also features Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, and Andy Serkis. Release is scheduled for October 2021.
