Turns out, it’s not actually a “sequel.”
Wonder Woman dominated the 2017 summer box office, and fans of the superhero have long been giddy over the forthcoming “sequel,” Wonder Woman 1984. However, the wait for the next installment has taken longer than expected. Here’s everything we know about the film so far.
WHEN’S IT COMING OUT?
Wonder Woman 1984 will now fly into theaters on December 25, 2020.
The premiere date has changed multiple times since it was first announced. It was initially set for December 13, 2019, then pushed to November 1, and again to June 5, 2020. The opening was then delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, first pushed to August 14, then later to October 5, and now to Christmas Day.
“When we greenlit Wonder Woman 1984, it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14,” Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement, per Variety. “We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”
Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, told The Hollywood Reporter back in 2018, “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.”
