  On Monday, October 22nd, Warner Bros. announced that Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot, has been pushed back from November 1st, 2019 to June 5th, 2020. In addition to Patty Jenkins as the director, the movie will be produced by a specially selected team consisting of Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, and Stephen Jones.

  The president of Warner Bros.’ domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, said, “We had tremendous success releasing the first Wonder Woman film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”

  Luckily it does not seem as though the delay is due to any issues occuring on the film set. No news or negative press has surfaced from the sequel, making it appear as though the rescheduling is simply a marketing strategy for Warner Bros. After all, perhaps not coincidentally, the new release date is set for  the same opening weekend as Wonder Woman had in 2017. Considering the massive success of the first film, it is logical that the sequel should definitely follow in its steps.

  Muniza Ahmed (11), a big fan of Wonder Woman, said, “I [am] disappointed that [I am] going to have to wait longer to watch the movie, especially because I heard it was moved so that the movie would come out at a time where it could thrive-even though the amount of attention it would get [would not] be [significantly decreased] if it were released [earlier]. Overall, [I am] just glad [they are] continuing the franchise.”

  Alongside Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, starring as Steve Trevor.

  Manaal Sultan (10) is eagerly anticipating the reunion of these two stars. Sultan said, “After seeing the released set pictures a few months ago, [I am] really excited to see [Chris Pine and Gal Gadot] again. I am a little disappointed with the release date being pushed back because now I have to wait longer.”

  Even though it will take a little bit longer until the final product is ready for viewing, many are hoping that the delay will not affect the quality of the film.
