Vanity Fair previously reported that Robert Pattinson, who plays Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, in the film, was the person who tested positive for COVID-19.

Production at Leavesden Studios outside London was put on hold Sept. 3. Pattinson and cast and crew in close contact with the actor were reportedly quarantined for two weeks.

"Following a hiatus for COVID-19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K.," a Warner Bros. rep said.

Deadline said it is unknown if Pattinson has returned to set. The actor was spotted holding hands with and kissing his rumored girlfriend, model Suki Waterhouse, Wednesday in London, according to People.

The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves and co-stars Zoƫ Kravitz, Paul Dano and Jeffrey Wright. Warner Bros. released a teaser trailer for the film in August.
