This week, Warner Bros. Pictures has made a few updates to its 2017 film schedule. The studio recently pushed back Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur to February 2017, after its original July 2016 date. But now, the Guy Ritchie-directed epic will debut even later than that. Meanwhile, WB reaffirmed the precise release dates for 2017’s two DC Entertainment films, Wonder Woman and Justice League Part One.
So, it has been announced that the next King Arthur movie will now debut on March 24th, 2017. This is more than a month after its previous February 17th date, which was announced last month. Hopefully, these delays will help the studio and crew to craft a better movie; they certainly have the time for it. Charlie Hunnam stars as the titular legend in the film, which has a supporting cast that includes Jude Law and Djimon Hounsou.
This next bit isn’t exactly “news,” as it has been widely assumed for a couple years. But now, in case anyone had any doubt, Warner Bros. has finalized the schedules for its two 2017 DC films. Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 23rd, 2017, while Justice League Part One will arrive on November 17th, 2017. Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, is currently undergoing production. Meanwhile, the Zack Snyder-directed Justice League will begin shooting in April.
Back in 2014, WB announced a bunch of release dates for “untitled DC films,” including these two. Shortly afterwards, the studio confirmed the years of release for all of the movies, but not the exact dates. So, this is where fans assumed these release dates, but now they’re officially official. Let’s see if the same will happen for WB/DC’s films coming out in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
