'Wonder Woman 1984' pushed to 2020 release

The sequel, titled Wonder Woman 1984, finds the superhero's alter ego Diana Prince (played by Gal Gadot) traversing the 1980s, as the title suggests, including battling the Soviet Union in a Cold War plot. Moving Wonder Woman 1984 to 2020 means waiting SO LONG, but at least everyone gets their corner to themselves. But as you'd imagine, plenty of fans aren't too happy to hear the news, and weren't shy about expressing their feelings, either.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be the eighth film in DC's extended cinematic universe and will follow next spring's Shazam! . Jeff said the movie is now "exactly where it belongs".

The next film in the Terminator franchise, which is a sequel/reboot being directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller, has been moved two weeks earlier, taking over the November 1, 2019 weekend that was previously held by the Wonder Woman sequel.

"Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home".

However, actress Gal Gadot confirmed on Monday that it would now be delayed until June 2020.

"Wonder Woman" was the highest-grossing film of summer 2017 with US$412.5 million (RM1.7 billion) at the United States box office, and US$821.8 million worldwide. The film is scheduled for release on November 1, 2019. In the tweet, she references the June opening of the first film, and hints that the pushback was to place Wonder Woman back in the successful timing of the original.

Gadot didn't give specifics on what the "changing landscape" is referencing, but assumedly it would be changes to other movies' release dates - or the release of the Joker film one month prior to the previous release date on October 4.

It would have faced Universal's animated movie Abominable and Universal's action-thriller The Hunt on September 27, 2019.
