With theaters closing down again due to COVID-19, it was only a matter of time before the movie-release musical chairs started up again. And the latest casualty is the Caped Crusader.

Warner Bros. announced Monday that "The Batman," director Matt Reeves' anticipated movie introducing Robert Pattinson as the latest cinematic Dark Knight, has been delayed from Oct. 1, 2021, to March 4, 2022. Taking its spot next year: Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic "Dune," which has shifted from its scheduled Dec. 18 release this year.

One piece of good news, at least for Keanu Reeves fans: The upcoming fourth "Matrix" movie is actually moving up on the calendar, from April 1, 2022, to Dec. 22, 2021.
