‘Wonder Woman 2’ Pushed Back to 2020

Steve Porter / October 23, 2018

The DCEU’s most anticipated film, Wonder Woman 1984, has been pushed back seven months to June 2020.

Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, Wonder Woman was the first unqualified success for Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe both critically and financially. Not only did it make over $800 million at the box office, it was the most successful film starring a female superhero and the highest-grossing film helmed by a woman. Commentators were confidant that Warner Bros. would get a sequel in the works as soon as possible, and they were right. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot both signed up for the sequel—with an appropriate increase in pay—and Wonder Woman 2 was slated for November 1, 2019.

Now, the film has been pushed back seven months to June 5, 2020. Naturally, Warner Bros. and star Gal Gadot have both said that the move is a good sign. Warner Bros. released a statement: “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. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”

Gal Gadot was more succinct: “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!!!”

We’ll be there, but we’re sure there are other reasons the studio has yet to disclose. We’re still very exited for this movie—now, we just have to wait another seven months.

Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Pedro Pascal, Wonder Wonder 1984 flies into theaters on an invisible jet on June 5, 2019.
