The Batman ‘suffers ANOTHER setback as a stuntman tests positive for COVID-19’

Filming for The Batman has reportedly been hit with yet another setback, after a stuntman tested positive for COVID-19.

Sources claim the stuntman, who is part of a bubble with nine other crew members, may not return to set until Christmas after they all quarantine for 14 days.

The Batman, which will see Robert Pattinson take on the role of the Caped Crusader, has already faced heavy delays after production in March was suspended for six months in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sources told The Sun that the main cast, including star Robert and the film’s crew, are unaffected by the positive test.

However it’s thought that some stunt scenes, that were due to be filmed Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, will be postponed until those affected have finished their isolation.

One source said: ‘It’s pretty disastrous.’ 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Warner Bros. for comment.

The Batman has already been heavily delayed by issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, with filming suspended in March when the outbreak began to spread.

Production then resumed in September, but had be delayed yet again when star Robert reportedly tested positive for coronavirus. 

An insider told MailOnline at the time: ‘Today is the first day the main production unit has returned to filming and there seem to be no other hiccups at the moment.’

Meanwhile, a Warner Bros. Pictures spokesperson confirmed: ‘Following a hiatus for COVID 19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the UK.’

In September, MailOnline revealed that production crew were ‘working round the clock’ to try and film scenes without Robert after he contracted COVID-19 and was forced to self-isolate for two weeks.

The Hollywood actor, who was understood to have turned up on set with a temperature, had to stay away from filming for 14 days while he recovered.

Filming eventually resumed and relocated to Liverpool, which itself sparked backlash from locals as the city had been placed into the highest tier of lockdown last month. 

Due to the delays, the film’s release date has been pushed back to March 2022.  

Colin Farrell is set to take on the villainous role of The Penguin, while Zoe Kravitz stars as Catwoman, alongside Geoffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon and Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/ The Riddler.
