Pushed back to 2020
The DCEU is ready to stand back up after a rocky justice league and a whole year without releasing another movie, but if you were looking forward to two movies in 2019, you may have to be more patient.
Gal Gadot took to Instagram and twitter to announce the movie date has been moved from the 1st of November 2019 as originally planned to later on the 5th of June 2020. She claimed this is due to the changing landscape and bringing the film home.
The changing landscape could mean there are many changes in the planning of DC movies moving forward. This comes after Ezra Miller’s Flash has also been pushed forward, and the batman solo movie has not found a grounding yet. There is also plans for a Birds of Prey team up, New Gods film, a sequel to Suicide Squad and a Green Lanterns Corps movie all planned in the near future.
The film will premiere almost 3 years after the first and would look to mirror the success of the first summer blockbuster movie. Though it’s pretty early to call June a home just after one film, the breathing space to finish production and market the movie might just be what the film needs to beat the first movie success and cement June as Wonderwoman month.
With Shazam the only DCEU movie for 2019, fans would hope for its success to keep the universe alive. However, Joaquin Phoenix-led Joker coming out later in the year might satisfy fans until another DCEU release, though it’s not set in the current universe.
Wonderwoman 1984 will be set in the 80’s and will see Diana battle Barbara Ann Minerva, a.k.a. Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig. Not much has been revealed yet about the plot. Patty Jenkins will return on the director’s chair, while Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright reprising Steve Trevor, Hippolyta and Antiope, respectively. Newer actors include Pedro Pascal, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel and Gabriella Wilde in unannounced roles.
