It was only a matter of time but Warner Bros. has finally announced that it is officially postponing Wonder Woman 1984. The DC superhero movie was originally supposed to premiere in early June. But due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the studio has now switched the film’s premiere to mid-August.
Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich released a statement on the film’s postponement, stating….
“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 August 14. We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”
Accompanying the poster was a statement from Gadot on Twitter in which she shared the film’s new motion poster…
In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead. Where we can share the power of cinema together again. Excited to redate our WW84 film to August 14, 2020. I hope everyone is safe. Sending my love to you all. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/nzPUM7uQ1n— Gal Gadot (@GalGadot) March 24, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t the only film removed from its original release date from Warner Bros. The studio has also delayed the releases of musical In The Heights, the animated Scooby-Doo movie, Scoob! and James Wan’s horror feature, Malignant.
