Filming on 'The Batman' had been paused in early March due to the pandemic. The latest halt in production will cost Warner Bros hundreds of thousands of dollars and could further delay the release of the movie which is slated for release in October 2021.


According to the Daily Mail; The crew member said: “We have been sent a memo telling us that a member of the crew has had a positive Covid-19 test,” a source revealed. “Everyone was talking on the set about it. We do not know who has tested positive, but it has caused chaos to the schedule.”
'Everyone was looking forward to getting back to work and its come as a blow that production has stopped just three days after we began filming. We have all been told to stand down until further notice and we are not expecting to be back filming for at least two weeks.'
The source continued to say; 'There is an irony to all this in that you would think Batman would be immune seeing as it all started from bats,' said the insider.


The Batman movie is reported to have 3 more months of filming ahead to complete the movie in order to meet the latest theatrical release date.
