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.
People says Dax Shepard recently had a bad motorcycle accident which he talked about on his podcast, Armchair Expert. The 45-year-old actor and genius decision-maker revealed that while on a racetrack in California, he decided to really go for it. As you can expect, it went poorly. He was thrown from the two-wheeled beast and broke several bones. Who do you think you are? George Clooney? I guess with Dax and wife Kristen Bell at each other’s throats, risking his life on the track is better than risking it at home.
Simon Cowell got into a scary situation over the weekend and was taken to the hospital after falling off his electric bike, an electric bike that he was riding around his own compound in Malibu. This is why it’s much, much safer to never ever leave your couch. At least that’s what I tell myself. But does Sharon Osbourne have an alibi? Or Gabrielle Union?
Brian May, guitarist for Queen and a man who I’m 90% sure is actually a time-traveling Vivaldi, has recently been mysteriously absent from social media. And some of his fans got worried. Because we’re in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, and well – when you haven’t heard from someone in a while, especially from someone who is 72 years old, you get a little nervous. Brian finally checked in on Instagram yesterday and confirmed that he had been in the hospital, but not at all for the reason you might suspect.
In case you couldn’t tell from everyone’s mom, auntie, sister, brother, uncle, dad, grandpa, grandma, cousin, gynecologist, favorite barista, weed man, and everybody else not named Henry Winkler forming a prayer circle around a St. Hanks candle, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have both tested positive for coronavirus. This is the worst Tom Hanks-related news since we all found out he was half responsible for inflicting Chet Haze upon the world.
We’re only a week into the new year, and 2020 is testing us already. The New York Post reports that 89-year-old Stephen Sondheim fell at his home a few days ago. I can’t imagine that was an easy call for the 911 operator to receive. “Stephen Sondheim fell sometime today, send help, he’s hurt!” It must be hard to focus when your ears are being drilled with the alliterative pizazz of a Sondheim lyric.
