Wonder Woman 1984 new release date, starring Gal Gadot

The ongoing health crisis resulted in film studios delaying the release of highly-awaited blockbusters, and the same was true for DC's Wonder Woman 1984 , once again starring Gal Gadot. The sequel to the 2017 film, which dominated the box office and garnered critical acclaim, was met with equal anticipation for its original June 2020 release. The pandemic forced theaters to close worldwide and delay the release, but recent promotional art reminded fans of what's to come. After announcing its original delay, the highly-anticipated sequel once again has a new release date, asking fans to wait just a bit longer.


In a post shared via the film's official Instagram account, Wonder Woman 1984 will now be released October 2, 2020:

In response, Gal Gadot expressed her joy and gratitude for fans sticking through the long-awaited release:

Wonder Woman 1984 writer-director Patty Jenkins also took to social media to remark on the film's release delay:


The film's updated release date from August 14 to October 2 comes on the heels of Warner Bros. also delaying the release of Christopher Nolan's Tenet to the end of July, roughly a two-week delay for the latter. As theaters are looking to operate again amid phased reopenings nationwide, Warner Bros. is shifting its films' release slate in response. Wonder Woman 1984 appears to have felt the impact with its push to October.

A difference in a few weeks should be of small concern to fans, especially if Wonder Woman herself can attest to it. As Gal Gadot stated, October 2020 will be well worth the wait to see the return of the Amazonian warrior. In the meantime, it gives ample opportunity to predict whether any of our calculated theories come to fruition .
