Wonder Woman 1984 Release Postponed To August Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

The sequel was supposed to open worldwide in June.

Wonder Woman 1984 has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The upcoming DC blockbuster sequel, starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince's superhero alter ego, was originally scheduled to hit cinemas on June 5, but Warner Bros. has confirmed a new August 14 release date amid the global crisis. 

Wonder Woman 1984 was slated to open here June 4, but is now pushed to Aug 13. 

In a statement, Toby Emmerich , Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, said: "When we greenlit Wonder Woman 1984, it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14.

"We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then."

The studio has also indefinitely pulled In The Heights, an adaptation of Lin-Manuel's musical which was to be released on June 26 (June 25 in Singapore), while the Scooby-Doo animated film Scoob (May 15; May 14 in Singapore ) and James Wan's thriller Malignant (August 14; Aug 13 in Singapore) have also been axed for the time being.

New release dates for those three films haven't been announced yet.

Miranda took to Twitter on Tuesday (Mar 24) to confirm the delay on his musical, which is helmed by Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu and stars Hamilton actor Anthony Ramos.

He wrote: "We had the best summer of our lives filming #InTheHeightsMovie movie last year. We gathered in Washington Heights and told this story, on location in this neighbourhood, with our neighbours in this community.

"We couldn't wait to share it with you. But we're going to have to wait a little longer. With the uncertainty in our world, right now, the release of In The Heights is being postponed.

"When we can safely gather again, flags in hand, we will be there, enjoying this movie in theaters. We'll have the premiere uptown." — BANG
