'Wonder Woman 1984' moves to 2020
Unfortunately, the world will have to wait a bit longer for the return of Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman”. Although “Wonder Woman 1984” has completed principal photography, Warner Bros. Pictures has adjusted the film’s release date. Originally planned to hit the big screen on November 1, 2019, the Patty Jenkins will now arrive as a 2020 summer blockbuster, debuting June 5, 2020.
Details on the specific plot of “Wonder Woman 1984” are still unconfirmed, but it has been confirmed that the storyline will find Diana (Gadot) facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig. The cast is also set to include Chris Pine, mysterious returning as Steve Trevor, and Pedro Pascal in a still unconfirmed role (although there’s one theory about his role that you can check out right here).
Gadot herself confirmed the new date on Twitter, suggesting that a summer release was always the desired outcome:
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!!!

DC Comics fans shouldn’t be too upset about the “Wonder Woman 1984” delay. After all, we’ve still got Aquaman arriving this December and two more live action DC Comics films still on the way in 2019. Shazam!, starring Zachary Levi, arrives April 5, 2019 with Joker, featuring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime, following on October 3, 2019. There are plenty of other films in active development, too, including another Suicide Squad, a Birds of Prey movie that will feature Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and a new Batman movie written and directed by Matt Reeves.
