The production for the upcoming film The Batman was closed down for two weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After the news that Hollywood superstar Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were tested positive for the disorder while shooting for an untitled Elvis Presley biopic in Australia, Warner Bros. decided to halt production on The Batman for fourteen days, reports variety.com.

The movie’s crew had been shooting in a sound stage in London since January and was intending to change places. Warner Bros. believed it was best to select a hiatus through the location change.

It’s unknown when the shoot was about to end and when it is going to affect the June 2021 launch date at this time.

As for the two other Warner Bros. movies in manufacturing — Matrix 4 and King Richard starring Will Smith — they have yet to be put on hiatus as of yet.

The shooting for Matrix 4 has been happening in Berlin, but in a soundstage where safety measures are being accepted, while King Richard’s shoot has already been rearranged as a result of bad weather in Los Angeles, which is expected to last for the upcoming few days.

The Batman celebrities Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.

It’s set to start on June 25, 2021.

The film joined a long list of Hollywood movies in production that have been put on hold on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.
