Warner Bros. has halted production of The Batman after lead Robert Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19, Variety confirmed. According to a statement released by the studio, Pattinson is "isolating in accordance with established protocols" and filming will temporarily remain paused as the actor focuses on his health. The studio previously shut down production of the film back in March — along with several other entertainment projects — when the shelter-in-place orders were first issued as a result of the novel coronavirus outbreak. While Pattinson has yet to comment on his health, we wish him a safe and speedy recovery.
