By Smriti Tripathi
The Batman film shooting has been suspended again. The shooting of the film first shut down in March because of the pandemic, which has staggered the entertainment industry and it resumed after days following the coronavirus lockdown.
Warner Bros confirmed the pause in filming because Robert Pattinson, lead actor of the movie has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to US media. He also said that a member of the production team was self-isolating but didn't reveal the name.
British actor Robert Pattinson, 34 years old, caught the virus days after shooting resumed near London, after a delay of six months in filming according to the statement of Vanity Fair. The news of Mr. Pattinson’s positive test came a day after Dwayne Johnson's confirmed the news of the test positive on Instagram. Pattinson, who also co-star in Tenet, a current cinema hit, has not given any comment on the reports.
