The Batman is officially postponed to 2022.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Hollywood is continuing to shift movie dates.
Warner Bros confirmed the highly anticipated superhero movie The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, has been postponed from 1st October 2021 to 4th March 2022.
After forcing shutdowns in March due to the pandemic, most Hollywood films were given the go-ahead to start filming afterward. But in the meantime, there have been several bumps in the road.
For one, The Batman had to stop shooting in the United Kingdom days after it had returned to development because Pattinson tested positive for COVID-19. Towards the end of September, he was allowed to go back to work.
Robert Pattinson stars as The Caped Crusader on The Batman.
When it comes to other Hollywood productions, Shazam! 2 is nows scheduled to release on 2nd June 2023 rather than 4th November 2022.
Likewise, The Flash will hit the big screens on 4th November 2022 instead of the previously advertised 3rd June 2022. Moreover, the science fiction film Dune shall be releasing on 1st October 2021 instead of 18th December 2020.
The DCEU movie Black Adam starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was due on 22nd December 2021 while Minecraft was supposed to hit theatres on 4th March 2022, both of which are now delayed with new dates yet to be confirmed.
In the meantime, the untitled sequel of Matrix, which was set for release on 1st April 2022, is now pushed forward to 22nd December 2021.
Most Hollywood productions have been hit hard, with theatres either shutting down or reduced capacity due to the crisis caused by the coronavirus.
