Wonder Woman 1984 gets delayed yet again, and this time, it’s set to debut around the holidays!
The Wall Street Journal recently revealed that the Gal Gadot-led film will make its way to theaters later this year. Now, Variety just confirmed the delay, adding that Wonder Woman 1984 will now be released on December 25, 2020.
It comes to no surprise that the movie will abandon its October release date, given the lukewarm ticket sales of Warner Bros.’ Tenet. Initially set for release in November 2019, Wonder Woman 1984 was pushed back to June 5, 2020. The coronavirus pandemic then further delayed the film to August 14, before landing its October 2 release. This Christmas Day release marks its 4th delay so far.
“Patty is an exceptional filmmaker and with Wonder Woman 1984 she has delivered an incredibly dynamic film that moviegoers of all ages around the world will absolutely love,” Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group chairman, told Variety. “We’re very proud of the film and look forward to bringing it to audiences for the holidays.”
Director Patty Jenkins expressed her gratitude for the fans as they await WW84’s release. “Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I’m hopeful you won’t mind waiting just a little bit longer,” she adds. “With the new date on Christmas Day, we can’t wait to spend the holidays with you!”
Warner Bros. has seen massive success in releasing DC projects over the holidays, take 2018’s Aquaman for example. Hopefully, Wonder Woman 1984’s Christmas release proves to be a success as well.
