Wonder Woman Fans, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that Wonder Woman 1984 it looks like an epic sequel; the bad news is that Wonder woman 2 It has a new release date. Gal Gadot tweeted on Monday, October 22, that Wonder woman 2 will be launched on June 5, 2020. The film was originally scheduled to premiere on November 1, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In a statement provided to THR And other outlets, Warner Bros. President of the domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, cited "the changing competitive landscape" as the reason for the Wonder Woman delayed release of the sequel.
"We had a tremendous success launching the first Wonder Woman During the summer, when we saw the opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did it, "Goldstein said in the statement. This movement takes the film exactly where it belongs. "
2017 & # 39; s Wonder Woman It was a summer blockbuster, so it makes sense to keep the sequel on a similar schedule. Still, the news will not be comforting for the fans, who have waited for the movie since the first time. Wonder Woman 1984 The photos were released last June.
Like Goldstein's statement, Gadot's tweet also mentions the "changing landscape." The star tweeted on Monday,
"Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we can make Wonder Woman come back to her legitimate home June 5, 2020. Be there or square!"
Stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, along with director Patty Jenkins, will return for the next sequel. Kristen Wiig also joins Wonder Woman 1984 Like Cheetah, the villain Diana Prince will face off.
Jenkins also tweeted about Wonder woman 2release date on Monday, writing that she "can not wait for the day to come".
The first photos of the sequel revealed that Pine's character, Steve Trevor, is still alive, after a shocking ending to the original film. In the first Wonder Woman, Steve sacrificed himself on his plane, and it definitely looked like he had not come out alive. So Steve's photo in a tracksuit is a pretty big surprise, and it does not help that the fans have to wait even longer to find out what happened to him.
The original Wonder Woman However, it was a successful success for Warner Bros., so it makes sense that the company wants to schedule the release of the sequel to maximize its ability to make money. Wonder Woman broke the box office record for the highest-grossing film directed by a woman. And with the sequel, Jenkins will become the highest paid director in history.
These days, the movie scene is full of superheroes, but that does not mean that exceptional superhero films can not stand out. Movies like Black Panther Y Wonder Woman have resonated with the public for a reason, and it is likely that Wonder Woman 1984 It will be just as successful. While it is an annoyance that fans have to wait to see the movie, the wait will surely be worth it.
