The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman certainly has a lot to live up to, and Wonder Woman 1984 has been filming since this summer. We have been given glimpses of Kristen Wiig’s villain Cheetah, as well as the surprising return of Steve Trevor. Today, the film’s lead star announced a change in the movie’s release date.
Gal Gadot announced today via social media that the release of Wonder Woman 1984 is being moved back from it’s original release date of November 1, 2019. Now, it will come out six months later on June 5, 2020. The actress said, “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!!!”

The change in the release date means that a full three years will have passed since the release of the Amazon princess’s first solo film. Since then she has also appeared in last year’s Justice League alongside her male counterparts. This also means that the DCEU will only have one film coming out next year – Shazam! – as the standalone Joker film has been separated from the DCEU timeline.
As of yet, no major details are known about what we can expect to see in Wonder Woman 1984 other than what we have already shared with you. But given the fact that it has the same director Wonder Woman, I think that it’s safe to say that we can expect great things.
Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot, Kristen Wiig, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Pedro Pascal, and Chris Pine.
