I'm a little skeptical that Delta played too big of a role in the box office. I think the bigger factors are HBO Max and Suicide Squad wasn't exactly loved when it was released. I mean as was mentioned in the episode Birds of Prey opened to a similar box office before COVID-19.

I think it's *part* of the issue, but mostly in confluence with other factors. Like, disease AND I can watch it at home is a bigger driver of people avoiding theaters than either alone.
