The Delay Of Wonder Woman 1984
However, Princess Diana is not the only one who is not coming to theatres sooner. Other productions that are hindering include Scoob and In The Heights. Warner Bros. is delaying almost all their other releases as well, much like everyone else.
Many theatres are closing down every day and releasing any movie right now will just result in huge losses. The delay comes due to the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns in place because of it. After Black Widow, this is the latest major superhero film that confirms its postponement.
New Release Date In August
Productions like Black Widow and Mulan are postponing without any indication of a new release date. Many manufactures are now facing an indefinite delay. It seems like Warner Bros. can not wait for people to see the film because they have already set a new release date for the film. However, Wonder Woman 1984 is an exception.
In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead. Where we can share the power of cinema together again. Excited to redate our WW84 film to August 14, 2020. I hope everyone is safe. Sending my love to you all. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/nzPUM7uQ1n
