DC’s tentpole WONDER WOMAN sequel moves to kick off summer movie hype!
Wonder Woman was a smash hit in 2017, but fans who are eagerly anticipating its follow-up Wonder Woman 1984 will have to wait a little longer.
After Mark Wahlberg‘s Six Billion Dollar Man was removed from movie schedules worldwide, Warner Bros quickly decided to move Wonder Woman 1984 into the previous film’s June 5, 2020 release slot.
Why? Because after a successful late May release for Wonder Woman, the studio feels this should be a summer series.
“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,” said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros, according to Variety.
Statements aside, it was star Gal Gadot who announced the news to the masses via Twitter with a very similar message:
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!!!

Meanwhile, both the Charlie’s Angels reboot and the latest Terminator film are slipping into the sequel’s vacated November 1, 2019 release slot.
