The world has been living during a completely unprecedented time in history. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the entire movie business to shut down temporarily with films like Mulan and Scoob moving to on-demand services. The two big superhero franchises, Marvel and DC, tout some of the biggest damages to date with huge projects in various states of abeyance. Thanks to a new report from Deadline, it appears DC and Warner Bros will look to move Wonder Woman 1984 to another new date, which would affect the studio’s entire slate of films.
During the historic DC Fandome event, fans were treated to a brand new look at the highly anticipated sequel. First glimpses of Gal Gadot’s hero going toe-to-toe with Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah has fans all over the world eager to see the full story play out. However, fans may have to wait until November or December to see the latest DCEU feature. Additionally, Warner Bros will likely move Dune from its current December 18 weekend release to sometime in 2021 as well. With the first Dune trailer hitting the internet just this morning, it would be disappointing, to say the least.
Originally slated for a June 5th release, Wonder Woman 1984 holds a current October release. This next move is likely done hoping major US cities will open theaters in time to give Wonder Woman and Tenet their own time to shine. In May, Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, revealed the intentions behind the bevy of moves in a statement. “When we greenlit Wonder Woman 1984, it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen,” Emmerich said. “We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”
The sequel to 2017’s groundbreaking Wonder Woman will be set during the ’80s and feature the return of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. Standing in Diana’s way will be Wiig’s Cheetah and Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord.
