‘The Batman’, a DC-based superhero movie became the latest ‘victim’ of coronavirus infection when it was recently stopped filming.
Director Matt Reeves made the announcement on Wednesday in response to fans questioning whether the movie was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Yes, we have shut down till it is safe for us all to resume…” Reeves said in the tweet.
“Everyone safe for the moment, thank you for asking, and stay safe too…”
The Batman starred in “Twilight” Robert Pattinson as Batman, while Colin Farrell played the antagonist Oswald Cobblepot or better known as Penguin.
‘The Batman’ movie is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021, but it’s unclear whether that date will change following the delay in filming.
