Warner Bros. announces Wonder Woman 1984 has a new release date as it gets pushed back by seven months.
Originally the sequel to the hit 2017 movie was supposed to be released November 1, 2019, but now the new release date is set as June 5, 2020.
“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,” Warner Bros. said in a statement. “This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
Gal Gadot also added: “Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!”
The new Six Billion Dollar Man movie from Warner Bros. originally occupied the June 5 release, but now it is awaiting a new release date.
As noted, there isn't too much competition on the date, with only Disney's Maleficent 2 coming a week prior, Godzilla vs. Kong coming out two weeks prior, an untitled Pixar movie due out two weeks after, and an untitled Fox Marvel movie due out three weeks after, as well as Top Gun 2.
The first Wonder Woman was released June 2, 2017.
