Wonder Woman 1984 delayed due to coronavirus pandemic

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman 1984 Pushed Back Due To Coronavirus Outbreak

The film, which just released a bevy of new stills showcasing star Gal Gadot alongside Kristen Wiig's Cheetah and Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord, joins James Wan's upcoming horror movie Malignant, Jon M. Chu's In the Heights, and Scooby-Doo origin story Scoob! in the WB delays.

The Wonder Woman 1984 release date has been pushed back into August, giving the film a better shot at a cinematic debut in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Wonder Woman 1984", the sequel to 2017's "Wonder Woman", will now hit theaters on August 14 instead of June 5, and "In the Heights" - directed by "Crazy Rich Asians" filmmaker Jon M. Chu - had been slated for June 26 but now isn't dated for release.


Responding to the news, Gadot said: "In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead. When we can safely gather again, flags in hand, we will be there, enjoying this movie in theaters". "Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on August 14th", Warner Bros Motion Picture Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement. I hope everyone is safe. Second, it's worth pointing out that this could be an absolutely tremendous opportunity for Wonder Woman 1984. "Sending my love to you all".

The superhero movie was scheduled to premiere on June 5 in North America and will now debut August 14, the AT&T Inc. unit said.

While in the comics, Wonder Woman's armor is a basic protective uniform she has to put on manually, in the movie it appears to have a mystical origin, covering Diana's body automatically and allowing her to fly without an invisible jet. With a little luck, we'll still get to see Wonder Woman storming the Reagan era by summer's end. But Warner Bros. stuck to their guns and maintained that Wonder Woman 1984 would release in theaters in June as planned.
