UPDATE: The Batman Gets Delayed until 2022, but Matrix 4 Will Release Next Year

Fans of the Caped Crusader will be disappointed – The Batman’s release has been pushed to March 4, 2022. The movie was earlier set to release on October 1, 2021. However, given that the novel coronavirus caused theatres to close down again, it isn’t really surprising that Warner Bros. has delayed the Robert Pattinson star until 2022.

The Dune, a sci-fi from Denis Villeneuve which was supposed to release on December 18, 2020, will be taking The Batman’s release spot next year. This way, both movies will not be directly competing with each other. Studio officials have said that the delay of The Batman movie was most likely due to production delays and Pattison testing positive for COVID-19.

One piece of good news for fans of Keanu Reeves is that the release date of the fourth Matrix movie has been moved up to December 22, 2021, from April 1, 2022. Thus, Matrix 4 will now be a holiday release.

Additionally, The Flash has also been delayed by a few months – it was supposed to release on June 3, 2022, but will now be released on November 4, 2022. Shazam 2, which was set to be released on November 4, 2022, will now be released on June 2, 2023.

Minecraft and Black Adam seem to have been pulled from the schedule entirely by Warner Bros., so it is uncertain when these movies will release. The much-awaited Wonder Woman 1984, however, is still expected to be released on December 25, 2020. That said, given the fact that most movie theatres have had to shut down due to the pandemic, it’s probably likely that the release date of the movie will be pushed to next year as well.

The good news is that fans have a lot of great movies to look forward to in 2021, 2022, and 2023!
