The newest blockbuster to have its launch date punted down the calendar as a result of coronavirus pandemic is Matt Reeves’ The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson within the title position.
Warner Bros. had already pushed Wonder Woman 1984 from June to August, and now the studio is shuffling launch dates on various its different DC Comics-based blockbusters. Reeves’ Batman, with its street-style Batmobile, has zoomed from June 25, 2021, to Oct. 1 of that 12 months. An upcoming Flash film in addition to a sequel to 2019’s Shazam! have been shuffled as effectively, to June 3, 2022, and Nov. 4, 2022, respectively. James Gunn’s Suicide Squad seems to have held on to its Aug. 6, 2021 launch date.
Of these, The Batman is the one one which was in the course of filming. Warner Bros. hit pause on the movie’s U.K.-based production in mid-March. The shifted launch date doubtless leaves room for that manufacturing delay, in addition to house in Warner Bros.’ launch schedule for numerous 2020 movies whose launch dates have been postponed.
