It’s been revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to shut down production on The Batman due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
There has been a slew of movies put on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Now, we’re learning courtesy of Variety that Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to halt production on The Batman.
This came after it was revealed that Tom Hank had contracted the virus.
He was filming his upcoming movie, Elvis Presley, in the US when he and his wife, Rita Wilson both caught Covid-19.
Since then, Warner Bros. has opted to take swift action and has halted production on all their big releases.
Production on The Batman has been put on hold due to Coronavirus
This means that the likes of The Batman, The Matrix 4 and King Richard starring Will Smith have all been given a two weeks’ break.
The hope is that the virus will stop spreading and then they can get back to work.
However, it’s looking like things will only get worse before they get better.
There have been a lot of movies pushed back such as No Time To Die, A Quiet Place Part 2 and Fast and Furious 9.
Perhaps Warner Bros. Pictures might have to start thinking about delaying their upcoming films’ releases.
