It was just released that English actor, Robert Pattinson has tested positive for the corona virus. Due to this heart-breaking diagnosis comes the renewed halting of ‘The Batman’ just after it’s first days back in production. The movie is still slated of a 2021 release.
As we all know, due to the global pandemic, ‘The Batman’ and all other television and movie productions were shut down for safety.
There is no comment from a representative or from him at this time. Let us all pray for him, his family and for a speedy recovery.
With world wide closures of everything, due to COVID-19 television and movie sets shut down, halting projects in process like Matt Reeves, The Batman, staring Robert Pattinson. My dream come true! This picture of Rob in isolation honestly speaks to my spirit.

This isn’t happing immediately however, many new heath procedures and safety precautions have to be put in place to keep the crew, the actors, everyone on set safe. What are these new procedures and precautions? No word on that yet either but as long as the world is slowly getting back on it’s feet, I can’t really complain.
When news first came out that Robert Pattinson would be playing Batman, The Batman, I was almost too excited. I, personally didn’t enjoy Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the character, that whole era of the DCEU was a bit bleak, excluding Wonder Woman. I can’t wait to see Pattinson’s interpretation of Bruce Wayne. Honestly, the entire DCEU needs a soft reboot. I just pray this superhero movie doesn’t fall into production limbo like The New Mutants.
Based on the Children’s book by Dr. Seuss, this adaptation comes out November 8th! Familiar names, such as Tracy Morgan, Diane Keaton, Adam DeVine, and Keegan-Michael Key, from Key and Peelewill be narrator.
