Zoë Kravitz has said she is concerned about filming The Batman movie amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 31-year-old actress, who plays Catwoman in the film alongside Robert Pattinson as Batman, told Variety Wednesday that while she is excited to return to work in the near future, she remains concerned about staying safe on set while there is still a risk of contracting coronavirus.
The production came to a halt in early March when lockdown orders began to take effect throughout the country as a result of the pandemic.

Kravitz said she’s “hoping to wake up every day to an email or phone call” that notifies her it’s safe to resume filming, but so far it has remained unclear when exactly that might happen. Warner Bros previously announced that the release of the film will be delayed four months, from June 2021 to October 2021.
“I’m in touch with everybody, and everyone’s ready to go when it’s safe,” Kravitz told Variety. “But no, we have no idea.”
The actress also explained that her role would require direct contact with others on set because even getting into her costume is not just a one-person job.
“You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long,” she said. “I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own. I was probably touched more than any job, just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that.”
Considering that superhero films usually have complex stunt work, elaborate sets, and large film crews, it’s unclear how long the projects will remain shut down.
Meanwhile in the TV world, Tyler Perry is scheduled to start filming the second seasons of his BET series The Oval and Sistas in Atlanta on July 8, as previously reported.
This week in a 30-page document titled “Camp Quarantine,” Perry detailed his plans to keep workers safe when production resumes.
