“At this point the news will be the premiere of a movie and not its delay.” Surely you have thought about it too. And is that day yes, day too, we have to echo the agenda movement of a new film that has decided, given the COVID-19 situation, to postpone its release rather than lose more money in movie theaters that are not going to be filled. Yesterday without going any further we received the news of Dune and today we must do the same with several DC titles (which shares a distributor with Villeneuve’s proposal), which is sure to make you wonder how the release plan of the Marvel opponent looks. The answer, of course, you have below. Keep reading.
More and more delays
This is a non-stop although deep down we all expected it. After an unprecedented pandemic that paralyzed the world for months in early 2020, many believed that the second half of the year would be the time for recovery. We would all have learned to live with the virus (waiting for a vaccine), the new normal would impose and little by little business would begin to roll as always … But nothing could be further from reality. Although it is true that some sectors are recovering little by little, many others continue to have the worst year in their history and among them is the film industry.
Totally orphan of titles To premiere, it was expected that many of the blockbusters would be concentrated from October to December, however, every day we find out about a new movie that falls from the plan. From Black Widow (which has caused that we have never been so long without a Marvel film on the billboard) to the recent Dune, of which Warner Bros. announced yesterday that it moves to no less than October 2021 (we practically have to wait another year, crazy).
The different DC titles have also danced non-stop. Wonder Woman 1984 has been postponed several times but at least holds in December (for now), while we just learned that The batman it also falls from your first scheduled date, moving to 2022 and causing the displacement of other titles. And beware that we already sneak into 2023 …
DC’s provisional agenda in theaters
You know how this goes: today Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to launch in December and tomorrow announces again that it will be July 2021. Even so, we wanted to do a review so that you more or less have clear the new dates of the great franchise of superheroes and know how the premiere plan is going after so much dance of dates. And the changes have been important.
To start moving the film Dune to October 21, 2021, which was the date of The batman, has caused the Pattinson tape to move to 2022. Other movies like The Flash or Shazam 2 have also been relocated, while Black adam, which had a date for December 22, 2021, for the moment there is no new date assigned:
- Wonder Woman 1984: December 25, 2020
- The Suicide Squad: August 6, 2021
- The batman: March 4, 2022
- DC Super Pets: May 20, 2022
- The Flash: November 4, 2022
- Aquaman 2: December 16, 2022
- Shazam 2: June 2, 2023
- Black adam: pending new date
