Wonder Woman 1984 bumped two months due to coronavirus

Wonder Woman 1984 bumped two months due to coronavirus”

Wonder Woman 1984 will now hit theaters on August 14.

"Gal Gadot's return to the big screen as Diana Prince in 'Wonder Woman 1984" has been postponed, it was officially announced on Wednesday. There's certainly a worst case scenario here in which we're not mostly back to our regular lives at that point, but given what most experts are saying, that timeframe feels pretty safe. "In these awful times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film to August 14th, 2020, in a theater near you, and pray for better times for all by then". In a statement, Warner Bros.

The second Wonder Woman film sees the heroine reunite (somehow) with Chris Pine's Steve Trevor as she attempts to save the world again in a new, neon-drenched decade.

It had previously been reported that Toby Emmerich was considering making Wonder Woman 1984 available through streaming due to the crisis, with director Patty Jenkins and producer Charles Roven wanting to push back the release to August. The film, which just released a bevy of new stills showcasing star Gal Gadot alongside Kristen Wiig's Cheetah and Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord, joins James Wan's upcoming horror movie Malignant, Jon M. Chu's In the Heights, and Scooby-Doo origin story Scoob! in the WB delays.

Following in its superhero rival's footsteps, the DCEU has delayed its next blockbuster due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Wonder Woman 1984", the sequel to 2017's "Wonder Woman", will now hit theaters on August 14 instead of June 5, and "In the Heights" - directed by "Crazy Rich Asians" filmmaker Jon M. Chu - had been slated for June 26 but now isn't dated for release.
