If there has ever been a use for the tag “Love In The Time Of Corona,” this is it. Because the clock has barely done any ticking since we learned that Robert Pattinson reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. And now we’re seeing plenty of pictures of Robert and his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse engaging in a mask-wearing make-out session in a London park.
The Batman started filming in January, but because of COVID-19, the pause button was pressed on filming in March. Filming started up again just a few days ago in England, but well, coronavirus let every Batman villain know to have a damn seat and let a real demon monster wreak havoc, because Vanity Fair says that production has stopped again and this time it’s because Robert Pattinson caught COVID-19. First, Black Adam and now Batman?! Corona is coming for the DC superheroes. Wonder Woman better stop organizing her follow-up to Imagine and throw every mask on her face before soaking in a tub of Purell while holding onto her shield of protection.
Yesterday, the first leg of DC FanDome (kinda like Comic-Con but only for DC comics) was presented virtually, and despite people not being able to dress up and nerd out in person, the event made plenty of DC nerds stir in the nether regions. This part of the event (part 2 follows on September 12) featured online panels, fan art, cosplay, and special events for kids. But the real attraction was a bunch of long-awaited DC-themed premiers and sneak peeks, including Robert Pattinson as Batman in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman (they certainly didn’t spend all of that delayed quarantine time working on that title).
Director Catherine Hardwick Says That If A “Midnight Sun” Movie Happens, Robert Pattinson And Kristen Stewart Probably Won’t Be In It
Midnight Sun is the newest Twilight book and it’s told from the perspective of Edward Cullen, so you know, it’s something that totally needs to exist. August 4 will be an exciting day for Twihards who can’t let go and Stephenie Meyer’s bank accounts, because that’s the day that mess comes out. And, of course, there’s already talks about turning it into a movie since humanity hasn’t been enough. But along with people of color, don’t expect Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to reprise their roles because DUH.
Robert Pattison Took His Own Pictures For His GQ Cover And Nearly Started A Fire In His “Batman” House Kitchen
It’s mid-March and things in Quoronatine (™) are starting to get weird. GQ made Robert Pattison take his own pictures for the June/July cover and the interview was conducted by phone and over the internet. Throughout the interview, Rob was really playing up the whole “man goes slowly crazy in isolation” angle even though he’s in London living with his girlfriend (probably Suki Waterhouse) in a house provided by “the Batman folks,” eating weird food provided by “the Batman folks,” but refusing to do his prescribed workouts. Rob says he’s already “totally lost all sense of time” and nearly burned down his very nice kitchen by putting aluminum foil in a microwave while trying to demonstrate how to make a handheld pasta monstrosity he’s developed in hopes of filling a pasta shaped hole in the fast-food industry. But the joke’s on us. This interview was conducted in April and Rob probably got the idea for this tortured bit of performance art from watching the Calzone Zone episode of Parks and Rec. Despite looking like the disheveled corpse of a mid-range gigolo, Rob is fine.
What with all of the turmoil and devastation going on in the world right now, we know you’ve been dying to see sneak peeks of the 398th remake of Batman, starring the world’s most handsome man, Robert Pattison. Lucky for you, your prayers have been answered. Well, kind of.
