Production on The Batman took a brief hiatus in lieu of Robert Pattinson testing positive for Covid-19 (which was the film’s second delay after it was halted in March due to the pandemic).
Originally scheduled to be released in June of 2021, the first delay pushed The Batman to debut that October. The film’s second delay in production has pushed it even further, now slated to hit theaters in March of 2022.
Robert Pattinson, Colin Farrel and and Zoë Kravitz were spotted filming the Matt Reeves blockbuster in Liverpool, England. Fans were granted a sneak peek of Kravitz as Catwoman, dressed in the character’s signature black leather garb. Colin Farrel was also seen as The Penguin, complete with prosthetic scar tissue and wrinkles. While a more grounded and realistic depiction of the supervillain (as opposed to Tim Burton’s Batman: Returns, where the character was so grotesquely mutated and deformed that he only had three fingers on each hand), the costume still portrays him in a way that respects the original source.
It’s unfortunately going to be some time before we finally see The Batman, but personally, I’m willing to wait. While I did enjoy Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader, I’m anxious to see the character once again in a good movie (which has been over eight years now, mind you).
Robert Pattinson fans were ecstatic to learn that he'd be starring in The Batman. However, their anticipation will have to hold out a little longer, as Warner Bros. has delayed the release date from October first, 2021 to March fourth, 2022 due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
After Robert Pattison positive test for COVID-19, the production of The Batman shut down again for his health and safety. It was recently reported that the film has resumed filming after the actor got the go head to continue work after recuperating.
Pattison and the cast and the crew who were exposed to him all quarantined after the positive results.
I think we all can agree that we are beyond relieved and happy he is able to get back to work on what is sure to be a game changing film.
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.

It was announced that the shutdown of UK production sets have been lifted. While the U.S.’ are still closed, there is no telling when they can resume filming state side but other countries are moving forward slowly.

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.
