Wonder Woman 1984, set to be the next installment in the DC Extended Universe film franchise, has been officially postponed to August 14, 2020 in light of the ongoing pandemic worldwide. The announcement was made by the film’s director, Patty Jenkins, via her Twitter account.
“We made Wonder Woman 1984 for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema,” Jenkins said. “In these terrible times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film… and pray for better times for all by then.”
The film was originally slated for a June 5 release in theaters. Wonder Woman 1984 sees Gal Gadot return to the title role, joined by Chris Pine returning as Steve Trevor, as well as by Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah and Pedro Pascal as Max Lord.
