Another Superhero Film Delayed; Wonder Woman 1984 Postpones Release Date


Warner Bros. has officially announced that it has postponed its upcoming superhero flick, Wonder Woman 1984, as the world continues to battle the ongoing pandemic.

The movie’s director, Patty Jenkins, responds to the delay in a Tweet with a new motion poster, citing that she’s “excited” to set a new date for the film:

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot also shared the news on Twitter, echoing the director’s words:

The film was initially slated to release on 5 June but has now been delayed to 15 August this year.

The studio thought that it’d be “realistic” for cinemas to be up and running again by the time August comes. Hence their reason for confidently placing the 15 August release date for Wonder Woman 1984.

Earlier this month, many other movies had faced inevitable delays as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip the world.

Movies such as No Time To Die, A Quiet Place Part II, and even Black Widow have all faced delays. Some of these movies have not set a new release date yet.

Other movies that have also just been added to the delay list include a film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical In the Heights and the animated film Scoob. Both movies were slated for a 26 June and 15 May 2020 release, respectively.

James Wan’s new horror film, Malignant, has also been pulled from its original 15 August release date. It had to make room for Wonder Woman 1984.

While Warner Bros. has yet to set a new release for those three movies, the studio is currently looking for new dates to slot them in.
