The coronavirus pandemic has already put the production of many films and TV shows on a pause. The latest big name to join the long list is Robert Pattinson's 'The Batman'. The shooting of the film started in January in London but ever since the outbreak, there have been growing concerns about the safety of the cast and crew. 

Warner Bros took the decision of suspending the production for the film until the pandemic came under control so that the safety of the cast and crew was not jeopardized. The studio revealed that they will be looking into the situation before making the decision as to when the production should restart. 

"Warner Bros. Pictures feature production of The Batman will hiatus filming for two weeks beginning today," read the statement.  "The studio will continue to monitor the situation closely." This announcement comes after it was revealed that the production of the film was moving from London to Liverpool. 

However, this is not the only big-money production that has been put at a pause ever since the outbreak of coronavirus. Recently, Netflix's 'Red Notice' that starred Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds was also stopped for two weeks because of the outbreak. Disney has also put a pause to some of its upcoming live-action films such as 'The Little Mermaid'.

However, there are some of the films by Warner Bros. that have been continuing their schedule despite the outbreak. For instance, 'The Matrix' reboot recently completed its shooting in San Fransisco and the crew is now heading to Berlin to continue the rest of the shooting.

The Will Smith drama 'King Richard' has also not stopped shooting and is carrying on with the production. As for 'The Batman', there has been no hint of when the production will resume or if it will affect the release date of the film.
