‘The Batman’ release date delayed over COVID-19

Matt Reeves' film gets a new release date

With most film and television sets currently in a holding pattern, it should come as no surprise that director Matt Reeves’ highly-anticipated The Batman has seen its release date pushed back at least four months.

The film was initially set to hit theatres on June 25, 2021, but the studio has eyed October 1, 2021 as a new release date, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Batman, which Reeves has confirmed will not be an origin story, stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, John Turturro, Jayme Lawson, and Peter Sarsgaard.
