Wonder Woman 1984 is the long-awaited sequel of 2017’s Wonder Woman.

Production for the film has been well-underway for a long while. It looked to be on track for its second release date of November 1st, 2019. It was originally scheduled for a later November release.

The film, however, has now been pushed back to June 5th, 2020. This came as an announcement on the star of the film, Gal Gadot’s Instagram.

She wrote, “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!!!”

Warner Bros also released a statement about the move, “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.”

Wonder Woman 1984 takes over the release date for, what was to be, Mark Wahlberg’s Six Billion Dollar Man. That film is now unset and perhaps not happening.

We should wonder if the move also has to do with the latest behind-the-scenes drama for Warner Bros and DC Films. Henry Cavill (Superman) was recently fired from the shared universe and Ben Affleck (Batman) appears poised to leave as well. This comes after a series of less than well-received films, outside of 2017’s Wonder Woman.

Patty Jenkins returns to direct. Chris Pine also returns to star and Kristen Wiig joins the cast as the villainous Cheetah.
