'The Batman' Delayed Until Early 2022
‘The Flash,’ ‘Shazam! 2’ and ‘Black Adam’ will also see postponements.
Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman has been delayed until March 4, 2022.
The news arrives about a month after production was halted due to Pattinson, who plays the lead role of Bruce Wayne, testing positive for COVID-19. Production resumed in mid-September, however Dune‘s own postponement to October 1, 2021 — the scheduled premiere date of The Batman — pointed to yet another delay for the superhero film.
In addition to The Batman and Dune, Warner Bros. revealed that it will be pushing back three more titles: Ezra Miller‘s The Flash will now release November 4, 2022, Zachary Levi‘s Shazam! 2 will release June 2, 2023 while Dwayne Johnson‘s Black Adam, which was originally slated to premiere in December 2021, has yet to receive a new release date.
