‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Moves Release Date Back 7 Months

If you were a fan of the first Wonder Woman then you’ll unfortunately have to wait a little longer before you can see the sequel to the hit 2017 super hero film.

Wonder Woman 1984 will now open June 5th of 2020, putting the film in the same general area that the first movie opened in to great success.  The movie was first set to open next year, November 1st 2019.  However, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, tweeted the news on Monday of the change.

Warner Bro.’s president of domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, said in a statement moments after the tweet went out:

“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.”

Wonder Woman 1984 reunites Gadot with previous Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, and co-star Chris Pine, with Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig joining the franchise. The 2017 film broke many records grossing more than $412 million in North America and $821.8 million globally.

Lately, there has been pretty much nothing but setbacks in regards to the DC superhero universe. And while a movie moving back its release date is normally a sign of trouble, this seems genuine.  The film did so well in the same spot in 2017 that it only makes sense to release the sequel in the same area.  Don’t fix what isn’t broken.

What do you think of this move?  Is it a sign of weakness, or a sign of confidence? Leave a comment below and let’s make a discussion out of it.

Also, I have an announcement that I made regarding a Podcast that I am building.  Click here to see the details.

We Finally Have Movement on the ‘Suicide Squad’ Sequel

Its been just over two years since the Suicide Squad  movie hit theaters back in August of 2016, and the landscape at Warner Bros. has changed a lot since then.  With announcements of movie cancellations, “mustache gate,” the constant revolving door of directors coming and going off The Flash, and the still constant questioning on if we have a Batman or not – it has been really iffy on if we would actually get a Suicide Squad 2.  However, it looks like there might actually be some movement on the project.

Todd Stashwick, the co-writer on Suicide Squad 2, recently said in an interview with Discussing Film:

We have finished our draft and I’m really proud of it… It’s a sequel to the first film.  Again, I can’t say anything else.  Our intention is to tell an exciting story, deepening these characters.”

The key quote here is “We have finished our draft.”  They have turned in an actual script.  This is something that a lot of people, including myself, never thought would happen.

At this time, there are three movies that DC fans can look forward to, Aquaman, Shazam!, and Wonder Woman 1984.  It is safe to assume that if these movies are a success then the script for Suicide Squad 2 will be greenlit and production will start very soon.  However, if they fail at the box office or critically, then this may be the last bit of news we get on a new Suicide Squad movie.
