Facing multiple hurdles lately and constantly being affected, shooting for The Batman has resumed yet again. “Following a hiatus for COVID-19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K," a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement Thursday.
On Sept. 3, The Batman shut down production in London, with Warner Bros. stating that a member of the production had contracted the novel coronavirus. Sources told THR that star Robert Pattinson had been diagnosed with COVID-19, though the studio declined to comment on the specific individual who had tested positive.
The Batman, which is due out Oct. 1, 2021, previously shut down in mid-March as the pandemic forced film and TV shoots to pause work. It was only back in production for a few days before Pattinson's diagnosis shut it down again.
The film takes place during the second year of Bruce Wayne's battle against crime in Gotham, and it recently debuted the first trailer to strong reactions during last month's DC FanDome.
