Citing "two people with knowledge of the production," The New York Times reported on Sept. 3 that Pattinson tested positive for coronavirus. The news came after Warner Bros. confirmed in a statement that "a member of The Batman production" had tested positive for COVID-19 and was "isolating in accordance with established protocols," resulting in filming being "temporarily paused." However, the studio did not name the person. Pattinson's team also didn't respond to E! News' request for comment.
On Sept. 17, MailOnline reported Pattinson had returned to The Batman set. Warner Bros. also confirmed to E! News it had resumed filming "following a hiatus for COVID-19 quarantine precautions." No other details were revealed.

"As many of you probably already know, we were in the beginning stages of production when COVID hit, so now I'm very anxious to get back to work and continue to form this beloved character," he said at a DC Comics' FanDome event in August. "I've always been a massive fan."
