Robert Pattinson has been cleared to return to filming ‘The Batman’ again after his positive COVID-19 test brought production on the comic book movie to a standstill. The studio has never confirmed the identity of the person with the positive test and did not reveal any information about Pattinson’s condition or if anyone else on the production tested positive. Representatives for Pattinson also never acknowledged that he had contracted the virus, though Variety confirmed an initial report in Vanity Fair that the actor had COVID-19.
Leading figures in the U.K. film production sector told Variety Friday that they continue to have absolute faith in the measures being taken to keep cast and crew safe from COVID-19 on British sets. Production on “The Batman” has reportedly resumed at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, U.K., albeit without star Robert Pattinson’s presence, according to the Daily Mail. On Thursday, Pattinson was diagnosed with COVID-19 and has to self-isolate for 14 days. Warner Bros.’ had reportedly suspended filming in the United Kingdom after star Robert Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19.

Twin brothers Max and Charlie Carver of Teen Wolf fame have seemingly joined the cast of Matt Reeves‘ The Batman.
According to The A.V. Club & IMDB , the Carver twins have joined the DC film in undisclosed roles. That said, one can assume the duo was cast to either play a pair of twins from DC canon, of which there are several, or original characters created for the movie.
