In a statement released by Integrated Corporate Communications of the media giant, a careful deliberation was conducted before the decision was made.
The safety of the actors and production team is one of the major reasons why the said film will not push through – at least for now.
It was also stated that the upcoming movie has a lot of fight scenes, crowd shots, and physical contact so filming it will be risky amid the health crisis.
“We are committed to following production guidelines under the new normal and the safety of the actors and production team is a top priority. However, because the movie requires complex logistics, crowd shots, and fight scenes that involve physical contact, it will be difficult to give justice to the superhero film while strictly adhering to the guidelines,” it said.
“We are still in the midst of an unprecedented health crisis that makes it also difficult to assess when cinemas will recover and see audiences returning,” the statement added.
