The Batman resumes production.

Star Robert Pattinson has been cleared to resume work again after his positive COVID-19 test brought production on the comic book movie to a standstill.

The studio has never confirmed the identity of the person with the positive test and did not reveal any information about Pattinson’s condition or if anyone else on the production tested positive. Representatives for Pattinson also never acknowledged that he had contracted the virus, though Variety confirmed an initial report in Vanity Fair that the actor had COVID-19.

Filming at Leavesden Studios outside of London was halted on September 3 while Pattinson recuperated and cast and crew who were in close contact with the star also quarantined. Some sets continued to be constructed, but cameras effectively stopped rolling.
