Warner Bros.' Long-Delayed MINECRAFT Movie Adaptation No Longer Has a Release Date
Warner Bros. has announced that the long-awaited Minecraft movie — which was originally supposed to make its theatrical debut on May 24, 2019 — has lost its release date of March 4, 2022 and is now undated.
The studio has officially confirmed that The Batman will now take that aforementioned March 2022 date.
Although Minecraft has been delayed once again, Director Peter Sollett (The Village, Almost Family) is still attached to direct the movie. Unfortunately, that's everything we know about it at the time of this writing.
Considering that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic shows little signs of letting up in the Americas, it could be a good while before we learn anything substantial about Sollett's The Lego Movie–inspired production.
Those who just can't get enough of Minecraft should definitely keep an eye on a recently announced Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC that will allow players to join the fight as Steve and Alex on the 13th of October.
It's worth remembering that Minecraft is not the only major video game movie Warner Bros. is producing, as the studio is also working on a brand-new flick based on Mortal Kombat — still coming to theatres on January 15 — and a sequel to 2018's Tomb Raider, which should start production at some point next year.
