Report: Wonder Woman 1984 May Be Delayed Again
In theory, Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to come out in theaters in just over three weeks. However, making its October 2 release date may no longer be an option. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is likely to push the Wonder Woman sequel back into November or even December. But if Wonder Woman 1984 is held until December, then Dune could also be forced out of its December 18 release date.
This isn’t the outcome favored by Warner Bros., but the reality is that many theaters have yet to reopen. Movie theaters in Los Angeles and New York remain closed, and those cities represent two of the biggest film markets in the country. Additionally, the coronavirus pandemic is far from over. Many fans still don’t feel safe returning to theaters, even with social distancing rules in effect.
One of the big reasons Wonder Woman 1984 may get pushed is because of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. That film opened to only $20 million in limited release, far below a typical opening for a Nolan film. To recoup the movie’s $200 million budget, Warner Bros. may decide to keep Tenet as far away from Wonder Woman 1984 as possible. Deadline also notes that Wonder Woman 1984 has had a suspicious lack of promotion for a film weeks from release.
Additionally, the report notes the possibility that Marvel and Disney may push Black Widow back as well. If so, Wonder Woman 1984 could take over Black Widow‘s release date on November 6. However, neither studio has made a move yet.
