It looks like The Batman just can't catch a break. Just a few weeks after it was revealed that four members of the crew had tested positive for COVID-19, a stuntman has just been reported to test positive as well.

According to The Daily Mail, one of the film's stuntmen has tested positive for COVID-19. The member of the stunt team is part of a bubble that already includes nine other members of the production's staff. These crew members are set to be quarantined for 14 days and will not be able to return to work until Christmas.

Although this is bad news for production right now, the report also pointed out that Robert Pattinson and the rest of the main cast, as well as the film's crew, are not affected by the positive test.

This isn't the first time that The Batman has been delayed by COVID-19. Filming had to be halted back in March as productions were put on hold. By the time that shooting had resumed, Pattinson was revealed to have tested positive for COVID, causing another two-week pause. The most recent delay was confirmed after four crew members got positive tests.

For now, it is unclear when The Batman will resume production. However, there is a huge possibility that the cast and crew will be able to start working again early next year. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

The Batman is currently scheduled for release on March 4, 2022.
