The movie business evidently took a big hit due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Various theatres across the globe have been shut down since as early as January 2020 to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Various films like No Time To Die, Mulan and A Quiet Place: Part II were previously put off their release schedules for new release dates. Now, it is revealed that Wonder Woman 1984 has also been pushed to August 14, 2020, from its original June 5, 2020 release date.
Both Gal Gadot, the star of Wonder Woman 1984 and Patty Jenkins, the director, took to their respective Twitter handles and announced that their film has been pushed to August 14, 2020, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Patty Jenkins expressed that her film Wonder Woman 1984 was made to be experienced on the big screen and thus she is excited to bring the film on the silver screen instead of the streaming service it was earlier rumoured to release on. Check out Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins' tweet below -
