Fans will have to wait a little bit longer for the next “Wonder Woman” movie, “Wonder Woman 1984.” After the huge success of DC’s original starring Gal Gadot, the new movie has been pushed back to June 5th, 2020. In a statement, the studio Warner Bros. put a positive spin on the delay, since now it will come out in the same month as the “Top Gun” sequel “Top Gun: Maverick.”
“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,” the studio wrote. “This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
Taking to Twitter, the film’s star Gadot also posted a statement announcing 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!” she wrote. Check her tweet out below.
