“The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, was originally expected to debut June 25, 2021, and will now launch in theaters on Oct. 1, 2021.
Numerous films, including “The Batman,” have been forced to put production on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic. Movie theaters in the U.S., and in much of the world, have also mandated to close because of the global heath crisis, causing studios to reshuffle movies scheduled for summer and fall of 2020 and beyond.
As part of Warner Bros.’ announcement Monday, “The Many Saints of Newark” has been pushed from Sept. 25, 2020, to March 12, 2021.
The studio has also rescheduled two of its DC superhero movies: “The Flash” moved forward a month, and will open on June 2, 2022, instead of July 1. Meanwhile, “Shazam 2” is hitting the big screen seven months later than anticipated, and is set to launch on Nov. 4, 2022, instead of April 1.
