‘The Batman’ Release Date Pushed To Spring 2022
It’s been months since COVID-19 shut down major events and movie premieres, and the impact is still going strong as The Batman is one of the latest films to get pushed back because of the pandemic.
The film, starring Robert Pattison as Batman, will be released on March 4, 2022, instead of Oct. 1, 2021, Warner Bros. announced Monday (Oct. 5th).
But all hope isn’t lost with movies scheduled to debut next year. The release date for Matrix 4 was actually pushed up from April 1, 2022 to Dec. 22, 2021.
One face that won’t be returning for that movie is Laurence Fishburne.
In speaking with New York Magazine about his absence in the upcoming film, Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus in the popular movies, said:
“I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great.”
Acknowledging that Morpheus is one of his most well-known characters, Laurence Fishburne goes on to say,
“It is probably the role that I’ll be best remembered for, which is great; it’s not the only thing I’ll be remembered for, which is better.”
Meanwhile, Jada Pinkett Smith is said to be in negotiations to reprise her role as Niobe.
As for other movie changes, Wonder Woman 1984 is keeping its release date for Christmas Day of this year.
The news comes just after the ninth installment of Fast & Furious franchise was postponed once again.
The Universal movie was supposed to debut in theaters on April 2, 2021, but now, the new James Bond film No Time To Die will premiere on that date instead. F9 has been pushed back to May 28, 2021.
