After Warner Bros. announced earlier Monday that Dune was moving from December 2020 to 1st October 2021, the same day as The Batman, it was only a matter of time until they moved the Robert Pattinson starring movie.
The Batman has now been moved to 4th March 2022, 18 month from now, that is a hell of a wait.
The movies production has been hit quite hard with COVID-19 including star Pattinson coming down with the virus.
Also on the move is The Martrix 4 which is yet to get a full title, the movie starring Keanu Reeves is now set for Christmas 2021 while further down the line The Flash is set for November 2022 and Shazam 2 moves to June 2023!
No doubt more changes are to come, Warner Bros. still have Wonder Woman 1984 set for Christmas 2020, what are the odds for that changing?
As the blockbuster movies from 2020 slowly get delayed until 2021 the latest to move in unsurprisingly Denis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation will will now see a release on October 1st 2021.
This is, at the moment, the same release date as The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, so I suspect that might be on the move as well as its currently still in production and has been hit with CODIV-19 while filming which has caused delays.
This only leaves Death On The Nile and Wonder Woman 1984, and maybe Free Guy which got a new trailer today, left as movies to come out in 2020 that can be considered major blockbusters (Coming 2 America surely isn't ready yet!).
Last week the latest Bond movie No Time To Die got moved to April 2021 leaving the release schedule rather empty.
As I have written about today this is very worrying for the cinema industry that has started to, for the second time this year, shut down, this time not just because of COVID-19, through lack of films being shown.
2021 is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever year for blockbusters and at the moment we have not only some of the biggest films of 2020 now next year but all the films that should have come out in 2021!
During the 2020 online DCFanDome to celebrate all things from the DC universe Director Matt Reeves revealed the first trailer and poster for his upcoming The Batman movie.
The movie stars Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight and is based on The Batman in his early days of crime fighting.
The new trailer gives little to nothing away and is dark, suitably moody and shows Pattinson in his Batman outfit, and has a small amount of action.
What is actually the most incredible thing is that only about 25% of the movie had been shot before the COVID-19 pandemic halted production, and yet they still managed to get a very good trailer complete.
The poster is very good and gives a lot away without giving anything away, like any good teaser poster.
The movie is currently set for an October 1st 2021 release, but with the production only just ready to start again that may change.
During the build up for this years (maybe) one of a kind online DCFanDome experience director Matt Reeves has revealed the logo for the upcoming The Batman Movie.
The movie stars Robert Pattinson in the title role and has a young Bruce Wayne discovering the ways of The Batman.
Also starring in the movie is Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and the ever present butler Alfred Pennyworth is played by Andy Serkis.
With a release date originally set for June 2021 the production had to go on hold during the coronavirus pandemic and will now be released on 1st October 2021.
Not a lot is known about the movie yet and its not known if this will be part of the greater DCEU or a stand alone like 2019's The Joker.
What is #DCFanDome? It is an online event that is free for all fans to join for 24-hours only on August 22nd, and is taking place largely because ComicCon 2020 was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Excited to share the very first look at our official #TheBatman logo, and some very cool additional #DCFanDome artwork by the amazing @jimlee — see more of #TheBatman at the #DCFanDome global event in the Hall of Heroes this Saturday, 8/22! #TheBatman #DCFanDome #ForTheFans pic.twitter.com/ApfngNbyor— Matt Reeves (@mattreevesLA) August 20, 2020
20th April 2020
Production was about quarter of the way through on The Batman before it was halted because of the global pandemic, and unsurprisingly the release date has now shifted to 1st October 2021.
The original release was set as 25th June 2021 but after the halt in production that was never going to happen.
The film is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Robert Pattinson as batman along with Colin Farrell and The Penguin and Andy Serkis and his trusty butler and friend Alfred Pennyworth.
Other film on the move from the DC universe are The Flash movie which is now set for 3rd June 2021 and the Shazam! sequel which gets moved to November 4th 2022.
Also getting a change is The Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints Of Newark which will now be seen in cinemas on March 12th 2021.
