Filming of “The Batman” has been halted after star Robert Pattinson allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.

According to a report by Vanity Fair, work on the superhero drama resumed just days ago at studios outside of London.

Warner Bros. has not commented on the health of any individual in particular, stating simply that: “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for COVID-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”

Vanity Fair however says it has confirmed through highly placed sources that Pattinson was the individual who became sick.

In the new movie, Batman is in his second year of vigilantism, and is trying to solve a series of gruesome serial killings.

It also stars Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoƫ Kravitz as Selina Kyle before she becomes Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin.

The movie is being directed by Matt Reeves.
