Wonder Woman 1984 pushed to 2020 for the HYPE?
The highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 won’t be here any time soon.
In a tweet by the wonder woman who plays the iconic role of the same title, Gal Gadot informs the public of the sudden change. Yes, that’s news because it’s Wonder Woman. Just when people were thinking DC is changing for the better.
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!!!

Wonder Woman, the little things
Wonder Woman 1984 takes place in, well, 1984. Leaked photos and the first-look footage debuted at the San Diego Comic-Con may have calmed us a bit. However, the change of release date continues to stir troubles for fans and even the movie. Steve Trevor is back. Although this is true, it is unclear how he came back. His death (cue the exploding airplane and a devastated Diana) takes place in World War I. That is four decades apart in the timeline. Are the gods involved in this? Will Zeus and Hades be present?
In Patty Jenkins, goddess of film and DC fans’ beloved ally, we trust.
Not only do we know that Steve Trevor is back and that Diana just got hotter in retro clothes. The news of Kristen Wiig, actress extraordinaire, being the primary antagonist as Cheetah also made things much more, exciting. So why the move?
DC does have a thing to make things unbearable. Just when things are going good and fans are quite calm, the Warner Bros. higher-ups come in to ruin the jam! They’ve got no jams! President Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution, confirmed Gal Gadot’s statement. An article by Polygon presented Goldstein’s defense and confirmation
“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”
Basically, they’ve moved the premiere to June 5, 2020, for hype purposes. Their plan is to release the movie at the height of the summer blockbuster season. Because making people wait is fun.
Not the only one
Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t the only movie they’ve butchered. The solo Flash movie’s been moved from 2020 to 2021. Though Shazam will premiere in 2019, along with the new take on Joker, there are more movies in the danger zone. The release of Cyborg, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey and another highly anticipated sequel to Suicide Squad is still uncemented.
Wonder Woman is a legendary movie that has opened doors and chances leading to many changes we see today. The mishandling of this movie is infuriating. Not only that, DC and Warner Bros. thing to lack interconnection within its stories and such things as moves and delays is ruining things. Then there are the cuts, and so much more. It’s 2018, can’t they change for the better?
However, there is no need to panic too much. Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins will always deliver, and so will the other cast members. #WonderWoman2020. We’ll wait
