The Batman's new nemesis, COVID-19, strikes again – Robert Pattinson's stunt double has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.

According to reports obtained by The Sun, the individual and those inside his bubble have been ordered to isolate for 10 days.

This is the fourth time COVID has halted production – filming ceased when the whole world went into lockdown a year ago, and then Pattinson reportedly tested positive for the virus in September, shortly after director Matt Reeves started shooting again.

Another stunt double then contracted it in November, leading to further delays.

According to tabloid sources, action scenes at Warner Bros Studios in Hertfordshire, England came to a halt after the stunt double contracted the virus this week, and one insider told The Sun, "Shooting a blockbuster of this scale is difficult enough without the threat of COVID looming large.

"While this proves Warner Bros' testing regime is working, having so many people away from set for 10 days is a headache the studio could do without, especially when they are relying on the stunt team to deliver the film's most spectacular scenes."

Despite the latest delay, the movie is still on track to wrap next month.

Warner Bros. executives have yet to comment.
