Delays, delays and more delays!

Two movies we’ve been hearing quite a bit of updates about in recent times are being pushed back from next year into 2011. These two movies are Green Lantern and Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

A few weeks back, Screen Rant reported on the hefty $150 million budget that was being allocated by Warner Brothers for the production of Green Lantern. In that article, Screen Rant writer Kofi discussed the strange December release date for the Green Lantern movie that was set to open in December of 2010 and hoped that we wouldn’t get close to that date and see it mysteriously get pushed back to the following summer (a la Harry Potter 6).

Well, three weeks later it happened and now Green Lantern is scheduled to open June 17, 2011. It will share the summer with several Marvel superheroes from upcoming Thor and Captain America movies as well as Sony’s Spider-Man 4. That’s assuming we don’t see even more delays.

As for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, much of the news we’ve been hearing lately has to do with some lead actresses dropping out of the movie. Perhaps that has something to do with the delay as now, instead of an October 8, 2010 release, Sucker Punch will hit theaters March 25 2011.

Interestingly enough, back in February, Screen Rant master Vic discussed many of the upcoming WB movies and pondered which movies would be delayed. Both Sucker Punch and Green Lantern were on that list and now both are being delayed – what a surprise!.

What do you think about waiting many more months for the releases of these two movies?
