Warner Brothers studio announced on Tuesday that it is pushing the release of “Wonder Woman 1984,” which was supposed to hit theaters June 5, by one month amid growing concerns over theater closures as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world.
“When we greenlit ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14,” the chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, Toby Emmerich, said in a statement.
Gal Gadot, the star of the Wonder Woman sequel, tweeted about the change of plans and also shared a new poster of the film.“In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead. Where we can share the power of cinema together again,” Gadot wrote. “Excited to redate our WW84 film to August 14, 2020. I hope everyone is safe. Sending my love to you all.”
