The theatrical debut of Wonder Woman 1984 has been pushed back from October 2 to a Christmas 2020 release.
Director Patty Jenkins made a statement about the movie and sent love to all of the fans eagerly awaiting the sequel, saying that “First and foremost let me say how much Gal and I love all our devoted Wonder Woman fans around the world, and your excitement for WW84 couldn’t make us happier or more eager for you to see the movie. Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I’m hopeful you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer. With the new date on Christmas Day, we can’t wait to spend the holidays with you.”
The move is not a wholly unexpected, with both New York and Los Angeles area theaters still closed and the understandably underwhelming box office of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (which made only $20.2 million in its opening weekend).
The move also places Wonder Woman 1984 in close proximity to Legendary Pictures Dune, which is currently scheduled for a December 18 release.
