After being moved from its previous release date in June, Wonder Woman 1984 is once again changing its release date.
Following the news that Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film, Tenet, would be pushed back two weeks to open on July 31, it has also been revealed that Wonder Woman 1984 is being pushed back again to October 2.
This date range was previously used by Joker in 2019. Both of these change in release dates come amongst the myriad of date changes due to the uncertain nature of theater culture due to the pandemic caused by COVID-19.
October 2 will be the fifth release date that Wonder Woman 1984 has held after the original release announcement for the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman.
Originally supposed to be released on December 13, 2019, the date was subsequently pushed up to November 1, 2019. The film was then delayed to June 5, 2020 before being once again pushed back to August 14 and now October 2 due to the ongoing pandemic.
With its new release date, Woman Woman 1984 is now set to premiere around a month before Black Widow is set to release, the reverse of what they were prior to the delays.
This is not the only DC film news that has been making the rounds as of late. It was just announced that the DC films present on HBO Max would be on a rotating schedule, with the first batch set to leave the service on July 1. In more positive news, it was revealed that Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League would be coming to HBO Max in 2021 and Henry Cavill was in talks to reprise the role of Superman in future films.
While waiting for the chance to finally be able to watch Wonder Woman 1984, here is a list of animated DC Comics films that could possibly tide you over.
