Warner Bros. has pushed back several high profile movies including “Wonder Woman 1984” and the upcoming “Matrix” sequel…
Warner Bros. has once against shifted its release calendar in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
While movie theaters across the world are beginning to open up again, studios are being very cautious about high profile releases because all of their profits are tied back into people being willing to purchase tickets to see them. Warner Bros. had already shifted many of its upcoming films to later dates but now the studio is pushing back many of those films even further.
At the top of the list is “Wonder Woman 1984,” which was already pushed back to August after the COVID-19 outbreak first started. Now the highly anticipated sequel starring Gal Gadot won’t land in theaters until October 2.

In addition to “Wonder Woman 1984” being pushed back, Warner Bros. also shifted the release date for “The Matrix 4,” which will reunite much of the original cast including Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. “The Matrix 4” will now move from May 21, 2021 all the way to April 1, 2022.
Other changes to the calendar include Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film “Tenet,” which was pushed back two weeks with that film now being released on July 31. “Tenet” will likely end up as the first “blockbuster” movie released in the wake of the pandemic.
“Godzilla vs. Kong” is also being pushed back several months with that movie now slated for release on May 21, 2021.
