‘Batman’ movie pushed to 2022 as theaters close

Warner Bros. have postponed the release of the much anticipated ‘Batman’ movie on Monday due to a delay in production.

This comes after the lead actor, Robert Pattinson, tested positive for Covid-19 in September, causing production to be halted.

Cineworld also said it would temporarily shutter all of its U.S. and U.K. movie theaters due to disappointing box office results and the postponement of films like “Black Widow,” “Wonder Woman 1984,” and “No Time to Die.”

The move from Cineworld, which owns Regal Cinemas, means more than 7,000 movie screens will disappear for the foreseeable future, forcing Warner Bros. to rethink its distribution strategy.
