The Batman, Shazam 2 and The Flash have all gotten new release dates as production on all films have been affected due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Wrap, who first broke the news on The Batman has revealed that Matt Reeves’ The Batman will now release on October 1, 2021. The film was originally slated to release on June 25, 2021. While the delay is minor, early reactions from fans on social media have been fairly positive.

Alongside Robert Pattinson is Zoe Kravits as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswalt Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.
While ‘The Batman’ isn’t the only film that’s gotten a new release date. Shazam 2 has also gotten a new release date and will now release on November 4, 2022. Shazam director David F. Sandberg confirmed the new release date via Twitter.
Shazam 2 was originally slated to release on April 1, 2022. The new release date marks a seven months delay for the film.
