Wonder Woman 1984 Release Delay Causes Disappointment But Fans Believe It Is A Smart Move

Warner Bros. and DC Films’ decision to push the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 has disappointed a lot of fans who were eagerly waiting for the film. Instead of the previously scheduled November 1, 2019 release date, Wonder Woman 1984 will now release seven months later on June 5, 2020.

Gal Gadot herself took to Twitter to reveal the news.

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!!!” Gadot’s post read.

The film will now arrive almost exactly three years after Wonder Woman, which debuted in theaters June 2, 2017. The film went on to receive widespread praise and grossed a whopping $821.8 million at the worldwide box office. Its success immediately paved way for a sequel which was originally scheduled for release in December 2019. However, the release date was moved up to November of that year when Lucasfilm set Star Wars: Episode IX for a holiday premiere. Now, finally, Wonder Woman 1984’s release has been pushed to 2020 making the wait longer for fans.

It is believed that the decision has been taken to ensure Gal Gadot’s superhero sequel faces no competition from the rest of the big film. Notably, November 2019 is going to be a big month with Terminator 6, Sonic the Hedgedog, Kingsman 3, and Frozen 2 already scheduled for release. Considering the overwhelming success of the first Wonder Woman in June 2017, WB took a logical decision to move the sequel to a similar time frame.

The news has already created an uproar on Twitter with fans expressing their views on the release date delay through their tweets. While some are sad as they will have to wait seven more months to see the film, others are fine with the film’s release moved out from the already crowded November month and believe it to be a smart move.
