All has been quiet around The Batman since Robert Pattinson reportedly caught the coronavirus, but it appears things are about to change.
It has been just over a week since we first learned that The Batman would be shutting down due to someone catching COVID-19. Once it was reported to be Pattinson that caught the virus, additional cast and crew were also going to need to quarantine for two weeks.
Now, it looks as though there may be some movement around the production resuming.
According to a report from MuggleNet – which has a track record of accurate reporting from the Warner Bros. Studios in the U.K. – The Batman is about to suit up again. “Robert Pattinson is doing great, filming will commence late next week,” the brief report stated.
EXCLUSIVE: #FantasticBeasts 3 started principal photography LAST WEEK. Jude Law has been on set, along with other key talent.

ION: Robert Pattinson is doing great, filming will commence late next week.

A later tweet clarified the news came from “a source in the production who works closely with Rob.”
We don’t want to speculate too much on how severe his case of the virus may have been, but it sounds as though things are indeed going well. If production does resume late next week that would be at the two-week mark, and we’ll have to see what impact that has on the release date of the film if any.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
