After Wonder Woman 1984, whose postponement to December 30, 2020 was announced at the beginning of September, Warner unveiled that releases of many films have been postponed, starting with Dune and The Batman. Let’s take a look at the situation.

The COVID-19 pandemic and movie theater closures, particularly in the United States, continue to impact the film industry and result in the postponement of many films. Warner productions are no exception.

Initially scheduled for December 23, 2010, Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune is postponed to October 1, 2021. A direct consequence of Wonder Woman 1984‘s postponement to December 30, 2020. Because of these two changes in date, the studio has to rethink its entire calendar.

The Batman by Matt Reeves and carried by Robert Pattinson is now scheduled for March 4, 2022 instead of September 29, 2021. Two other films from the DC Universe are also postponed: The Flash with Ezra Miller will be released in theaters in November 2022 instead of June 1, 2022, while Shazam 2 is postponed to June 2023. Black Adam, another DC film with Dwayne Johnson as the lead, and the Minecraft game-inspired film no longer appear in Warner’s calendar. New dates are expected in the coming months.

The only good news in these postponements is that Matrix 4 has been brought forward to March 22, 2021. Lana Wachowski‘s film, which will see the returns of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, was scheduled for release on March 30, 2022.
