According to the famous magazine Vanity Fair, Pattinson tested positive just a few days after the filming of the movie had resumed near London following lockdown which was imposed to contain the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
In a statement, Warner Bros said, “A member of The Batman production has tested positive for Covid-19 and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused,” and added that they would not comment on any individual worker’s health.

Apart from Robert Pattinson, the new Batman movie also stars Paul Dano, John Turturro, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, and Zoe Kravitz.
Given there are no more hiccups, fans can expect the movie to be released next year.
