The Batman delay confirmed by Warner Bros, plus more release changes

Warner Bros confirms that The Batman will be delayed by at least three months, as it shuffles the dates of six of its upcoming films.

Given that filming has been shut down on the movie for the past month, it comes as little surprise to hear Warner Bros confirmed that The Batman is the latest movie to shift release dates as a consequence of the Coronavirus shutdown.

The film had been due to open in cinemas on June 25th 2021. This one is now moving, not because of multiplexes being closed (although who would predict what summer 2021 looks like at the moment), but instead because the film can no longer presumably be guaranteed to be completed in time.

The new date for the film is thus October 1st 2021, assuming no further delays.

Also delayed as Warner Bros shuffles its releases:

  • The prequel movie to The Sopranos, The Many Saints Of Newark, has moved from September 2020 to March 2021.
  • King Richard, starring Will Smith, has gone from November 2020 to November 2021.
  • Elvis, from Baz Luhrmann, moves back from October 2021 to November 2021.
  • Shazam 2 goes from April 2022 to November 2022.
  • The Flash moves forward a little, from July 2022 to June 2022.

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
