Production on The Batman shut down as Robert Pattinson reportedly contracts coronavirus

Filming on The Batman has been suspended for a second time after a member of the production contracted coronavirus.

The movie had only just restarted work after it was suspended back in March, but has now stopped again.

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

Warner Bros haven't named Pattinson in their comment on the pause, releasing only a brief official statement.

The company's spokesperson 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."

The new blockbuster, which sees Pattinson make his debut as the Dark Knight, is due for release next summer. 

War For The Planet Of The Apes' Matt Reeves is in charge of the movie. 

In the new movie, Zoë Kravitz will play Selina Kyle, better known as Catwoman, Colin Farrell will portray The Penguin and Paul Dano is The Riddler. 

As well as this, Andy Serkis has the role of Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright is Commissioner Gordon, John Turturro will play crime boss Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard will be Gil Colson, Gotham's district attorney. 

The new film finds Pattinson's Bruce Wayne in his second year of fighting crime and exploring the corruption that plagues Gotham City, as well as how it may tie to his own family...

The Batman will arrive in cinemas on June 25th in 2021.
