'Wonder Woman 1984' has changed it's release date from November 1st 2019 to June 5th 2020.
Comic book fans are having a rough time of it recently, as it seems just about every highly anticipated superhero movie is getting pushed back these days. From 'Dark Phoenix' to 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3', it's quickly becoming commonplace that movie schedules will suddenly change - either due to reshoots and cast availability, to directors being fired from projects. However, DC's 'Wonder Woman 1984' is the most recent movie to be pushed back, and it's more for financial gain.
Warner Brothers have said they moved '1984' on seven months due to a "changing competitive landscape"; meaning that they reckon the original November spot for Patty Jenkins' return might have underperformed at the box office. It's fair to say that around that October/November time is a very busy couple months for movies in 2019 - 'Sonic the Hedgehog' (yes, really), 'Terminator 6' (yes, really), 'Frozen 2', 'Kingsman 3', and 'Joker' will all be releasing around that time, so theatres will already be overstuffed for choice.
Gal Gadot made the announcement on Twitter, saying "Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!":
