Robert Pattinson, the latest actor to don the Batman cowl, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to multiple media reports.

Warner Bros. confirmed earlier Thursday that production on Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” had been halted in the U.K. after a crew member tested positive for the virus, but did not reveal the person’s identity.

Vanity Fair was the first publication to report that it was lead actor Pattinson that had the positive test.

Representatives for Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.

The shutdown of production comes just days after the comic book movie had restarted. The film had been delayed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic and had only previously completed around seven weeks of filming. The movie reportedly has around three months of material left to shoot and the aim is to wrap before the end of the year.

It’s unclear exactly what precautions were put in place on set or if cast and crew quarantined for two weeks in order to create a bubble. Even if the production took all the necessary steps, the positive coronavirus tests illustrates just how fragile things are for the film industry and how quickly business can be interrupted.

Reeves showcased a trailer for the film, due out in 2021, during a DC Comics fan event nearly two weeks ago. The footage sparked Batman fans’ imaginations and was well-received on social media.

“The Batman” has a star-studded cast which includes Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and Andy Serkis as Batman’s butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

The film takes place during the second year of Bruce Wayne’s time as Batman, before his enemies have turned into iconic super villains.
