Wonder Woman 2 delayed, here’s the new release date

2017’s Wonder Woman was a breakout critical success for the often uneven DC cinematic universe. Its sequel is set decades later, in the 1980s–hence the title Wonder Woman 1984–and will take the character into the Cold War. But its debut has been delayed, and it’ll no longer hit theaters next year. Warner Bros. has announced a seven-month delay, pushing the the return of Princess Diana to mid-2020.

Star Gal Gadot, who plays the title character, first shared news of the delay via Twitter. Rather than its planned November 1, 2019 date, it will now release on June 5, 2020. Gadot calls this date its “rightful home,” presumably a reference to its placement among tent-pole summer movies rather than a fall release. The first movie was released in May 2017.

The news was subsequently confirmed in a statement WB shared with GameSpot. “We had tremendous success releasing the first Wonder Woman film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution. “This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”

No other reason was given for the delay other than the “changing landscape” Gadot mentioned. That could mean that next fall is simply getting too crowded or that space has opened up in the following summer. DC has scheduled its Joker movie for October 2019, so keeping Wonder Woman 1984 in the November slot could have overlapped with it. The gap left behind by the movie has already been filled by another film, with the upcoming Charlie’s Angels now set for November 1, 2019.

So far we haven’t seen a trailer for WW84, so details are still scarce. Patty Jenkins is returning to direct, and Chris Pine is coming back in some capacity as Steve Trevor. We also know that Kristen Wiig has been cast as one of Wonder Woman’s most iconic nemeses, Cheetah.
