Warner Bros. is pushing back a huge number of films due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic including ‘The Batman’ and ‘The Sopranos’ prequel…
Several highly anticipated films from Warner Bros. received new release dates on Monday as studios across Hollywood continue to deal with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
“The Batman” — the new film from Matt Reeves starring Robert Pattinson — already shut down production in London due to the current crisis and now the film has a new release date as well. “The Batman” has now shifted to a new release date of October 1, 2021.
“Shazam 2” starring Zachary Levi has also been pushed back with a new release date on November 4, 2022.
“The Many Saints of Newark” — the upcoming film that will serve as a prequel to HBO’s hit series “The Sopranos” — is being pushed back from a September 25, 2020 release all the way until March 12, 2021.
Finally, “The Flash” starring Ezra Miller actually got bumped up just slightly with that film now due out on June 3, 2022 after it was originally supposed to be released in July 2022.
There’s no word yet when production on many of these films will start or begin again for movies like “The Batman,” which was already deep into filming when the pandemic hit and studios shut down.
