As the Coronavirus aka Covid-19 does its global tour, it looks like Warner Bros. cannot wash its hands clean yet of its Snyder-spawned DC-verse as the long-rumoured and fabled Snyder Cut is delayed. But more importantly, Wonder Woman 1984‘s release date has been pushed back.
DIrector Patty Jenkins has come out to double down on the Wonder Woman sequel being release in cinemas at a later date as opposed to Video On Demand:
We made Wonder Woman 1984 for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema. In these terrible times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film to August 14th 2020 in a theater near you, and pray for better times for all by then
New date. New things to look forward to… And dare we say pretty much having a messiah complex that a this sequel will be what leads the charge in rejuvenating the cinema and movie industry post-Covid-19. We’ll surely be the judge of that one. But we understand too. That stunt-laden scene would be a colossal disservice to all involved if it went straight to VOD.
