Warner Brothers is shuffling the release dates of several upcoming films.

The biggest setback is the delay of the new Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson which has been pushed back to 4 March 2022.

Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi saga Dune has moved to 1 October 2021. Other movies delayed include The Flash from 3 June 2022 to 4 November 2022, and Shazam 2 from 4 November 2022 to 2 June 2023. Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson and Minecraft are now undated, reports Entertainment Weekly.

On the upside, the new Matrix film has been scheduled for an earlier release on 12 December 2021.
