The follow-up to Gal Gadot’s first solo adventure as Woman Woman has officially been pushed up 7 months – to 2020.
The news will come as a worry to DC fans who have been optimistic about Wonder Woman 1984 after the critical success of the first film, Wonder Woman. The sequel, set during the Cold War, was originally intended to be released on November 1st 2019.
Wonder Woman 1984 will see Diana in the 1980s, butting heads with the Soviet Union and coming face to face with the Cheetah, as played by Kristen Wiig. Gadot is naturally in line to return as is Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielson with Patty Jenkins directing once again.
Gal Gadot took to Twitter to announce the news, claiming the delay takes Wonder Woman 1984 back to its “rightful home”.
Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!
