Filming of the upcoming The Batman film has resumed after lead actor Robert Pattinson is on the mend since testing positive for coronavirus.

While production originally came to a halt after Pattinson tested positive, some filming without the dark knight is now continuing at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden after fears that fully suspending productions could cost as much as £5 million.

But the actor, 34, was recently captured looking healthy and sharing a kiss with his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

And now he has returned to the set to continue the rest of filming.

A Warner Bros spokeswoman confirmed production had restarted “following a hiatus for Covid-19 quarantine precautions”.

The superhero film only recently returned to filming in Leavesden following a six-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And then production shortly went on pause again at the beginning of September after a person on set tested positive for Covid-19.

While Warner Bros Studios never officially confirmed or denied it was Pattinson, widespread reports from Vanity Fair suggests this was the case.

A spokeswoman for Warner Bros Pictures said: “Following a hiatus for Covid-19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the UK.”

The film was initially due for release in June 2021, but was delayed to October 1, 2021.

The Batman, which is directed by Matt Reeves, will see Pattinson, 34, follow in the footsteps of actors including Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Val Kilmer, Michael Keaton and George Clooney in playing the Dark Knight.

The film also stars Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Jeffrey Wright as Gotham City’s police chief Commissioner Gordon.
