After their recent premiere event in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment had intended on having a premiere event in New York on March 16th. Those plans have now been cancelled over health concerns as it relates to the coronavirus. Here is a statement from representatives of Warner Bros.:
“As the impact and spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, Warner Bros. is placing added emphasis on the health and welfare of its employees, talent and fans. To help minimize risk of exposure, Warner Bros. has opted to take preventative measures and cancel the New York premiere of “Superman: Red Son” on March 16, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, and we look forward to seeing you at future events.”
The movie is already available digitally, and will follow with a physical release in a couple of weeks. With one premiere already in the books, you could understand why Warner Bros. might have felt like this was an unnecessary risk. Plus, fans already have a way to see the movie in the safety of their own home.
