There is little doubt that Dune fans have been worried about the movie being delayed after it was confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 will now premiere on Christmas Day. Sadly, it looks like those concerns were spot-on. A new report reveals that the Timothee Chalamet film will be pushed to premiere in 2021 and will take over the release date intended for The Batman.

It was previously announced that Wonder Woman 1984 will once again be delayed and will now premiere on December 25. The sudden change in release date meant that the DC Extended Universe flick would hit theaters just a week after Dune's intended premiere. Although fans were concerned this would mean Warner Bros. will decide to move the Denis Villeneuve movie to a later date, some also believed that the studio was planning to dominate the holiday box office.

Unfortunately, that might not be the case. According to Collider, sources have confirmed that Warner Bros. will be pushing Dune to a later release date in October next year. Interestingly, the date being mentioned is October 1st, 2021.

If that date sounds familiar, that's because it's the intended premiere date for The Batman. Sadly, this could mean that we won't get to see Robert Pattinson's version of the Caped Crusader as soon as we thought as the DCEU flick is now expected to hit theaters in late 2021 or early 2022.

Warner Bros. has not yet issued an official statement about the delayed Dune release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
