When it comes to superhero films Marvel has absolutely owned that space. D.C. has tried a couple of times to put together an universe resembling Marvel’s but has sputtered nearly each and every time.
Ben Affleck as Batman hasn’t worked and it looks like he’s on his way out. The Superman films haven’t been a hit either and it also looks like D.C.’s looking for another Man of Steel. There was also the terribly bad Justice League film which bomb at the box office. Now, D.C. may has encountered what looks like another setback.
Arguably, the only film which has been a hit for D.C. was 2017’s Wonder Woman. The film went on to make more than $821M at the box office worldwide. With numbers like that it was only a matter of time until Hollywood produced a sequel. However, fans will have to wait a little longer for the much-anticipated second flick.
Wonder Woman 1984 was scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 1, 2019. But that has now changed.
The film’s star Gal Gadot posted on Twitter Monday that the film will now open on June 5, 2020.
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!!!
