The defender of Themyscira’s second solo outing is delayed by seven months…
Gal Godot’s incarnation of the world’s favourite Thymisciran princess cannot put a foot wrong just now. Not only was her first solo movie an unrivalled triumph, but her involvement in the Justice League movie was the diamond in the rough of a divisive and conflicted DC motion picture.
Her second solo adventure titled Wonder Woman 1984 has entered production and was expected to be ready for release in the run up to the busy 2019 festive period, however, the news is emerging from Warner Bros. which confirms the movie is set to be delayed for a whopping seven months meaning fans will have to wait until June 2020 to be reunited with the defender of Thymiscira.
Warner Bros. President of Domestic Distribution Jeff Goldstein stated:
“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.”
In a time where juggernauts like Solo: A Star Wars Story struggled to reap its reward at the box office thanks to a shortsighted release schedule that saw blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 released just weeks apart it makes perfect sense for Warner Bros. to be careful with Wonder Woman 1984. It’s original November 2019 release slot would have seen it released just weeks after the standalone Joker movie which would have had an adverse effect on the revenue stream.
In the meantime, the next DC Universe movie on the horizon is the visually stunning Aquaman movie. James Wan’s vision of Atlantis is set to be released on December 14th.
The Future of the Force. The future of pop culture writing.
