“The Batman” will no longer hit theaters in 2021. In another major release calendar overhaul, Warner Bros. has delayed the comic book adventure and a number of other movies, including “The Flash” and “Shazam 2.”

“The Batman” — starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader — had been scheduled for Oct. 1, 2021. It’s now set to open on March 4, 2022. As reported earlier on Monday, Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic “Dune” is no longer premiering on Dec. 18 and will instead move to the Oct. 1, 2021 date previously held by “The Batman.”

Other significant shifts include the Lana Wachowski-directed “Matrix 4” bowing several months earlier than expected. The upcoming sci-fi thriller — which sees the return of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss — had been set to open on April 1, 2022 and is now debuting on Dec. 22, 2021.

The studio also plans to release two yet-to-be-announced films on June 3, 2022 and Aug. 5, 2022. In turn, “The Flash” starring Ezra Miller vacated its June 3, 2022 slot and moved to Nov. 4, 2022. Meanwhile, “Shazam 2” has been pushed from its Nov. 4, 2022 date and will instead open on June 2, 2023.

Elsewhere, superhero adventure “Black Adam” (previously set for Dec. 22, 2021) and video game adaptation “Minecraft” (originally slated for March 3, 2022) have been taken off the release calendar entirely.

Other than “Dune,” Warner Bros. says the latest release date shuffle is because of production delays. After mandated shutdowns in March due to the pandemic, several Hollywood movies have been given the greenlight to start shooting after. But there have been numerous hiccups in the process. For one, “The Batman” had to suspend filming in the United Kingdom days after it went back into production because Pattinson tested positive for coronavirus. He was cleared to go back to work at the end of September. The upcoming “Matrix” sequel, on the other hand, was completed earlier than expected.

Currently, “Wonder Woman 1984” is still set to release on Dec. 25, 2020. Along with Pixar’s “Soul,” the Gal Gadot-led superhero sequel is one of the only notable movies that hasn’t entirely given up on 2020.

For movie theater owners, the lack of new product to entice audiences is devastating. Nearly 70% of U.S. cinemas have resumed operations since March, excluding venues in New York and Los Angeles. But with lower-than-expected ticket sales, many locations are facing the possibility of having to close down again. Already, Cineworld — the company that owns movie theater chain Regal — announced plans to shutter theaters in the U.S. and U.K.

Robert Pattinson has tested positive for coronavirus, prompting “The Batman” to suspend filming in the United Kingdom days after it went back into production, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Warner Bros. confirmed earlier on Thursday that production was being halted after a crew member tested positive but did not confirm the person’s identity. Vanity Fair first reported that Pattinson was the one who had coronavirus.

“A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating in accordance with established protocols,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement. “Filming is temporarily paused.”

The studio declined to comment about whether or not Pattinson had contracted the virus; a representative for the actor did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Depending on the amount of time that Pattinson has to self-isolate and recover, suspending production could be a costly proposition. “The Batman,” starring Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, was about seven weeks into filming when they had to turn off cameras in March due to the pandemic. The gritty comic book adventure has approximately three months of material left to shoot and hopes to be done filming by the end of the year.

Numerous productions were put on pause when the virus began to intensify last spring, and very few blockbusters have resumed filming amid the global health crisis. “Jurassic World: Dominion” was the first major movie to restart and has been back to work at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. since July. Universal Pictures, the studio releasing the latest “Jurassic” sequel, has taken expensive and extensive measures to ensure the set will remain coronavirus-free. Those safety procedures involve everything from routine temperature checks to renting out a hotel for the cast and crew for 20 weeks.

Since production for “The Batman” was put on hold, Warner Bros. pushed back its theatrical release and now plans to unveil the movie on the big screen on Oct. 1, 2021.

Matt Reeves directed “The Batman,” which also stars Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Jayme Lawson, Andy Serkis and Colin Farrell round out the cast.

Reeves, in a recent panel during DC FanDome, revealed that “The Batman” takes place during “Year Two” of the Dark Knight’s emergence — before his enemies have become full-fledged supervillains.

The Official Trailer for Robert Pattinson new movie The Batman came out yesterday.

No surprise here as many Hollywood productions already are underway in the UK, i.e. Sony’s Cinderella and Universal’s Jurassic World: Dominion (both which we first told you about), but Matt Reeves’ The Batman will return to filming in the UK next month at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.

Filming stopped in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reportedly, set construction began last month. The pic’s panel will be part of Warner Bros.’ DC Fandome on Saturday.

DC FanDome Unveils Schedule, Sets Panels For ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, ‘The Suicide Squad’, ‘The Batman’, ‘Black Adam’, ‘Lucifer’, ‘The Flash’, And More &#8211

Unlike Canada, where incoming U.S. production crews have to quarantine for 14 days before working, that is not the case in the UK as film productions are deemed essential workers.

Warners already has resumed shooting the Village Roadshow co-production The Matrix 4 in Berlin.

Reeves told me soon after the pandemic shutdown that a quarter of The Batman was in the can, but he wasn’t planning on editing anything at that point. He was going to use his down-time reconsidering “the tone of things. It happens any time you shoot anything. The unexpected — happy accidents and things you didn’t quite expect: That is the lightning in a bottle for something that is alive. I would say that the changes really have to do with ‘Oh, seeing the tone of this’ with these scenes we haven’t done which connect to that part of the storyline. It feels like there might be an opportunity to explore some of that unexpected tone that we found. With these movies, you never have enough prep time, because they’re so complex and so enormous in so many ways. It also gives me a moment to think about the larger sequences that have yet to come up and how I want to realize those.”

Due to COVID-19, the release date for The Batman was pushed from June 2021 to October 1, 2021. The reboot stars Pattinson in the title role, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone.

Variety first had the news about The Batman going back to production. Warner Bros. didn’t provide comment when reached by Deadline.

Christopher Nolan may well be the most secretive filmmaker of all time, and it seems it’s futile to try to keep secrets from a master of secrecy.

In a new Irish Times story on Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet, star Robert Pattinson recalled his attempt to fool the director so he could sneak away from the set to audition for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Apparently, the ruse failed miserably.

“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies,” Pattinson said. “And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test — I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?’”

Nolan, of course, famously put his own spin on Batman with the Dark Knight trilogy several years ago. Pattinson, meanwhile, landed the part, and credits Tenet with helping him get in shape for the role of the Caped Crusader.

“When I’m running on screen I’m generally paired with John David [Washington] who is an ex-NFL player so it was the most unfair thing in the world,” Pattinson told the Irish Times. “The maximum workout I do most of the time is a casual stroll. John David can run all day long. It was good that I ended up being pretty fit. But definitely, at the beginning, there were days I just could not walk afterwards.”

Tenet stars Pattinson and Washington as… well, we’re not really sure, as they attempt to… well, we don’t really know that either. (Remember what we said about Nolan’s secrecy?) What we do know is that Tenet is currently slated for an international rollout starting on Aug. 26, after having its release date pushed back multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will open in select U.S. theaters on Sept. 3.

The Batman, meanwhile, halted filming in March due to the pandemic, and is currently set to be released Oct. 1, 2021.

Johnny Depp is a ruthless and cunning Colonel alongside Robert Pattinson and Oscar-winner Mark Rylance in the historical drama “Waiting For The Barbarians”.

Based on the novel by J.M. Coetzee, the new trailer for the film sees Rylance as the unnamed Magistrate who reevaluates his loyalty to his country while assigned to a remote desert outpost with Colonel Joll (Depp). Joll arrives to help keep tabs on the so-called “barbarians” on the other side of the wall. Prone to terrorizing and torture, Joll has found an eager young officer (Pattinson) who is only happy to uphold his penchant for violence, leaving the Magistrate to question his loyalty to the empire.

Directed by Colombian filmmaker Ciro Gurrera, “Waiting For The Barbarians” premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year and will arrive on VOD on August 7.

“Doesn’t us being here now mean it never happened?” John David Washington asks at the end of the new trailer to Christopher Nolan’s latest high-concept film, Tenet. While the trailer doesn’t necessarily answer that question, it does shed some light on some of what goes down in the latest film from the director who brought us Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, and Inception. John David Washington is catching bullets. Kenneth Branagh is doing a fun accent. And Robert Pattinson is crashing a plane. Not from the air, that would be too “ludicrous,” but it’s a pretty large plane. There’s one question bigger than any plane that has yet to be answered: When is Tenet coming out? While the first trailer said Tenet would hit theaters this July, this trailer has no date listed, probably due to the global pandemic. Even time travel can’t escape the coronavirus.

In a competitive situation on the eve of the European Film Market, A24 has swooped on North American rights to one of the hot indie pics that has just dropped at the market.

In a low-seven-figure deal, the blue-chip buyer has swooped on Claire Denis’ next movie, love story/thriller The Stars at Noon, which has her High-Life collaborator Robert Pattinson and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood breakout Margaret Qualley attached.

Set in 1984 during the Nicaraguan Revolution, the film follows a mysterious English businessman and headstrong American journalist who strike up a passionate romance. They soon become embroiled in a dangerous labyrinth of lies and conspiracies and are forced to try and escape the country, with only each other to trust and rely on.

The project is based on the 1986 novel by acclaimed U.S. writer Denis Johnson. Filmmaker Denis is adapting the novel with Lea Mysius and Andrew Litvack. It sounds like prime territory for the director after movies such as White Material and Beau Travail.

Wild Bunch is launching international sales on the project at the EFM, and buyers are already hot for the package. RT Features and Paris-based Curiosa Films are producing with an eye on shooting later this year. CAA Media Finance brokered domestic, which will include a solid theatrical commitment.

Pattinson is currently making Warner Bros’ The Batman. Denis is coming off sci-fi High Life, which was also bought by A24. Denis told us around the time of that movie how much she’d love to work with Pattinson again. A24 has previously bought a handful of Pattinson movies.

In-demand Fosse/Verdon Emmy-nominee Qualley stars in the Berlin Film Festival opener My Salinger Year and is also due to star in the buzzy EFM project A Head Full of Ghosts. The work of novelist Johnson has been adapted before to the big screen, most notably with Jesus’ Son in 1999.

Qualley is repped by UTA, Management 360 and Sloane, Offer. Pattinson is repped by WME, Curtis Brown, 3 Arts and Sloane, Offer.
