THE BATMAN Temporarily Pauses Production Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

Per DEADLINE (via Warner Bros. Pictures), THE BATMAN — which just returned to production this week — has “temporarily paused” work on the film (again) due to a positive COVID-19 test by someone part of the cast or crew.  Here’s WB’s press release…

A member of THE BATMAN production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.

The story continues below the video!
Keep in mind that there are a TON of new safety measures and protocols that film productions must go through adhere to while filming.  I’m sure they are doing what they are supposed to do and will resume production very shortly…hopefully.

During DC Fandome, director Matt Reeves said he had shot 25% of the film before having to suspend production back in March, and has reportedly 3 months of filming remaining.

Stay tuned, I guess. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
