The uncertainty surrounding the current global situation is definitely taking a toll in the entertainment industry, and this recent development regarding The Batman is a prime example of that. Even though Warner Bros. and The Batman mapped out an extensive list of health protocols prior to the start of filming, it seems that the complex and confusing nature of the virus still remained a threat to the production restart.
Deadline has reported that filming for The Batman has temporarily shut down after a crew member has tested positive for COVID-19. Warner Bros. issued a statement regarding the current production status of the film:
“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”
