Production on The Batman was delayed once again last month due to a crew member testing positive for coronavirus.
“Shooting a blockbuster of this scale is difficult enough without the threat of Covid looming large,” an inside source told The Sun.
“While this proves Warner Bros’ testing regime is working, having so many people away from set for ten days is a headache the studio could do without, especially when they are relying on the stunt team to deliver the film’s most spectacular scenes.”
This isn’t the first time the film has been delayed due to coronavirus. Production was suspended for six months in March last year, when much of the world was sent into lockdown amid the global pandemic.
Shortly after filming resumed, it was halted once more when it was reported Pattinson tested positive for the virus in September.
Production was postponed a third time in November, when a stuntman was forced to isolate along with his bubble, after also being diagnosed with coronavirus.
The Batman, which also stars Zoe Kravitz and Colin Farrell, is slated to be released on March 4, 2022.
