Wonder Woman 2 Release Date Moved
The upcoming sequel to the DC Film is coming sooner than expected!
DC Film's Wonder Woman Sequel Gets New Release Date!
Warner Bros. has announced a new release date for their upcoming sequel to this year's Wonder Woman! Originally the movie was set to debut in theaters on December 13, 2019, but now the sequel will arrive six weeks earlier on November 1, 2019. This is a smart move by the studio as Lucasfilm recently set Star Wars: Episode IX for December 20, 2019 after J.J. Abrams took over that movie, moving from it's original May 2019 release date. As of now, Wonder Woman 2 is the only film sitting on that November 1 slot, although the untitled 25th James Bond film opens the week after on November 8, 2019, and Frozen 2 will arrive on November 22. Gal Gadot next appears as Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman in Justice League this weekend, and is also set to reprise the role in Flashpoint expected in theaters sometime in 2018.
Director Patty Jenkins is returning behind the camera for Wonder Woman 2, and is currently co-writing the script with Dave Callaham and DC Films co-chairman Geoff Johns. The producing credits on the film are still in flux after Zack and Deborah Snyder left DC Films during production on Justice League, and Warner Bros.’ deal with financier RatPac Entertainment is ending soon after the fallout from the Brett Ratner scandal. Gal Gadot played the title role in this past summer’s Wonder Woman, which also starred Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock. The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers. The film took in $821 million at the global box office and was a critical and audience success. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
