Filming for The Batman has reportedly come to a halt for the second time as a stuntman has "tested positive for Covid-19".
The brand new movie, which stars Twilight's Robert Pattinson, is said to have suffered another setback ahead of its predicted release next year, according to film sources.
Producers resumed filming in recent months after it suffered a major setback in March when the pandemic began to spread.
The member from the stunt team is said to have been told to stay away from the set for 14 days after getting the positive results.

A source told The Sun: "It's pretty disastrous."
Back in September, it was safe to film again but the crew encountered more issues when Robert tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports.
At the time, the crew were said to be "working around the clock" to get scenes filmed after the actor had to self-isolate for two weeks.
Filming for the movie has been delayed twice
Eventually filming resumed with the cast and crew relocating to Liverpool.
Due to the huge delays, the film is not expected to be released until March 2022.
