Scheduling movie releases is a tricky business. Just as James Cameron doesn't want his Avatar sequels to clash with the Star Wars movies every Christmas, so too do the studios behind the current superhero movie mania have to deal with a lot of variables in order to arrange their movie calendars in a way that won't get all the comic book universes overlapping.

In latest movie release news, Warner Bros. has announced a few shifts to their initial plans: Godzilla 2 is moving, Godzilla vs. Kong has a release date, and there are two untitled projects, one of them probably being Green Lantern Corps.

Green Lantern Corps Might Have Been Pushed Back

Warner Bros. moved an untitled movie from June 19, 2020 to July 24, 2020, which means it will come out two weeks after Marvel's untitled movie and currently marks the end of the 2020 summer. That movie is widely believed to be Green Lantern Corps, the new take on the Green Lantern saga that should help everyone forget Ryan Reynolds's version in case Deadpool hasn't done that already.


Godzilla vs. Kong Gets A Release Date

The studio also addressed their Godzilla movies, with Godzilla 2 being moved from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2019 in order to avoid a direct clash with Transformers 6, which is set for release on June 8, 2018. Meanwhile, proving that Warner Bros. has high expectations for both films, Godzilla vs. Kong has found a slot on May 29, 2020, only a year after Godzilla 2.

They announced a "WB Event Film" for December 25, 2018 as well, where it will have to shine among one of Disney's live-action movies and Sony's animated Spider-Man movie.
