The 34-year-old shot a scene on Monday with hundreds of extras, in the port city of Liverpool.

It was the first time Pattinson was spotted on set again since shooting was suspended in early September, due to a positive coronavirus test in the crew.

Pattinson was shooting in rainy weather in front of the famous St. George's Hall in the city center, where preparations had been going on for days. Production was moved to Liverpool in March and the location will be the stand in for Batman's home city, Gotham.

Pattinson was photographed in character as Batman's alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne. Wearing a black suit and a dark wool coat, he was getting out of a car. According to British media, filming in Liverpool is expected to last one week.

One insider told the Daily Mail that coronavirus tests are being done on a daily basis and that contact between the cast and crew is kept to a minimum. The UK is currently experiencing a severe second wave of infections, with Liverpool being particularly hard hit.
