Warner Bros has officially pushed back The Batman from its original June 2021 release date to October of 2021. The studio has also delayed the majority of their DC slate, with the exception of the already completed Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad.
It seemed inevitable, but Warner Bros finally made the decision to delay Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman from its initial June 2021 release date to October of 2021.
The Batman‘s Not Heading Home Alone
While it is a shame to see The Batman get delayed, it actually makes more sense to release this film in October as it is more specifically targeted for an October release date. After all, he is a man who dresses as a bat. Also, given that Joker previously released in October and made over a billion dollars at the box office, it makes sense that Warner Bros. would want to release it in that space.
Additionally, Warner Bros. has also changed the release dates of two other DC films, with The Flash being brought forward to June 3 of 2022 and Shazam! 2 being pushed back to November 4 of 2022 from initial date of April 1.
Besides the myriad DC films, Warner Bros. has also delayed the Elvis biopic to Nov 5, 2021. They have also pushed back The Many Saints of Newark, a look at Tony Soprano’s formative years, which will now release on March 12 of 2021.
