Robert Pattinson has tested positive for the coronavirus, causing filming of The Batman to be halted just days after the superhero drama resumed work at studios outside of London.
Warner Bros. would not comment on any individual worker's health, sharing only this statement: “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 confirmed through other highly placed sources that Pattinson was the individual who became sick
First off, thoughts out to our beautiful boy Pattinson. I hope he recovers soon and doesn't have myocarditis or any of the other side effects they're discovering occur after recovery. I also hope nobody else in the production of the movie, which has been shut down since the news broke, has contracted it incidentally from him either. This world obviously sucks for a multitude of much more serious reasons, but the virus going to continue to hamper the production of movies for a long time. Unless your production has Tom Cruise to buy a cruise ship to quarantine on, that is.
In the meantime, lets just get some positive vibes going for our boy RPat. He is an absolute gem that is just coming into the prime of his acting life and I can't wait to see both 'The Batman', 'Tenet' 'The Devil All the Time' and everything else he has in store for us in the future.
