The actor, who is set to star as Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson’s superhero, told Variety that while part of her was “hoping to wake up every day to an email or a phone call saying, ‘We’re ready to go’”, she was aware that social distancing guidelines might render this impossible.
“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.”
Filming for Matt Reeves’s The Batman was forced to come to a halt when the Covid-19 lockdown was announced, with Pattinson recently revealing in an interview that he’d let the strict fitness regime put in place for the movie slide during quarantine.
With production moving back, The Batman is now scheduled to be released on 1 October 2021, with Paul Dano playing DC Comics supervillain the Riddler.
