Days after production of “The Batman” began again, Robert Pattinson, 34, allegedly tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease, according to a source that spoke to “Vanity Fair.” The new film had to pause production temporarily at their studios outside of London.

The company making the movie, Warner Bros., refused to confirm if Pattinson had tested positive. However, they did release this statement:
