‘Wonder Woman’ sequel’s official release date announced

Whilst we are well aware about Wonder Woman 2‘s filming being underway currently, lead star Gal Gadot confirmed the release date of the same through social media. Titled Wonder Woman 1984, the DCEU production is set to hit the theatres on 5 June 2020. That’s quiet a long wait considering its over 18 months away, whereas it was initially scheduled to release in November next year. So the fans could be excused to have been irked on hearing the news of the release being pushed by almost seven more months. 2017’s Wonder Woman was a monstrous hit at the global box-office, raking in $821 million which remains the highest figures posted by a DCEU movie till date. Its sequel is set in the testing circumstances of the Cold War in the 1980s (hence the title) as Diana Prince comes to conflict with the Soviet Union. Also, she’d be battling a new villain in Cheetah, a savage feline who was the arch-enemy of Wonder Woman in the DC comics. Gadot broke the news on her official Instagram handle by posting a teaser poster of the movie that’s captioned: “Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. 5 June 2020. Be there, or be square!” A DC Entertainment production, Wonder Woman 1984 is directed by Patty Jenkins.
