Warner Bros. has moved Wonder Woman 1984 back seven months from Nov. 1, 2019, to June 5, 2020. The sequel, which is set in 1984, replaces Mark Wahlberg’s Six Billion Dollar Man, which has been taken off the schedule.
Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, said, “We had tremendous success releasing the first ‘Wonder Woman’ film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
The first movie earned $821.8 million worldwide, including $412.6 million in North America. The movie is the highest-grossing film with a female director, as well as the 25th-highest-grossing movie of all time in North America. Patty Jenkins is returning to direct, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine set to reprise their roles alongside newcomers Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal.
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!!!

We’re so incredibly excited to see Kristen Wiig’s role as Cheetah in the film, but good things come to those who wait, right?
