COVID-19 has changed almost everything around us. No one is allowed outside anymore in most of the countries, streaming services are reducing the video quality for some time, theatres are shut for a while and many movie releases have been delayed. Warner Bros. has taken a step to move the release date of DCEU’s Wonder Woman 1984 from June 5, 2020, to August 14, 2020.
It is assumed that all the theatres will reopen soon when the cases of Coronavirus drop down as they did in China, the origin country from where the virus began spreading. Things are getting normal every day in China and Wuhan is free of COVID-19.
There were a lot of hopes about Wonder Woman 1984 being released on a streaming platform and Warner Bros. even considered it for a while, but then, it’s not gonna happen. Chairman of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, Toby Emmerich said:
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 August 14th. We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.
Flim like Onward, Emma, The Hunt, Birds of Prey, Bloodshot and a lot more are coming to streaming platforms because of the Coronavirus pandemic. They are coming early to the home screen so that the audience will get to watch the movie without going outdoors. Other Warner Bros. releases have been postponed too, Scoob!, an animated film and In the Heights are both delayed and the new release dates are not out yet. Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is set to release on July 17, 2020, and no changes have been made as of today.
On the other hand, Disney has moved the dates of its movies, Black Widow is not releasing on April 1, Mulan, The New Mutants, A Quiet Place Part 2 will have different theatrical releases dates. Here’s a list of All Movie Releases That Are Delayed Due To Coronavirus.
The second Wonder Woman film will take place in 1984 and Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Princess Diana, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Kristen Wiig as The Cheetah, Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta, Robin Wright as Antiope and Chris Pine will be back as Steve Trevor even though the character died in the first part. WW 1984 is directed by Patty Jenkins.
