This news was revealed via a box office analyst who was talking to Observer.
The analyst said that Wonder Woman 1984 will most likely change dates for the fifth time and move into either February or June 2021.
This will be due, yet again, to COVID-19 and the fact that people just won’t be ready to go back to cinemas until at least 2021.
Cinemas are closing and even the ones that are open have to adhere to very strict social distancing rules.
This means that even if your movie does get into cinemas, they’ll only be able to get a fraction of the box office takings they’re used to.
Warner Bros. Pictures has reserved a Christmas opening day for Wonder Woman 1984, but expectations are that the movie will be pushed into 2021.
Wonder Woman 1984 looks set to be delayed until 2021
Here’s what the analyst Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Box Office Pro, told Observer:
Optimistically, there’s a window for a big tentpole around the Presidents and Valentine’s Day holiday weekend in February since Marvel’s Eternals vacated that spot. That could be a good fit if the fall and winter fight against the virus goes better than expected and New York, alongside Los Angeles, reopen theatres by then. Perhaps more realistically, June 11 looks like a great spot. Universal just left that weekend wide open with Jurassic World: Dominion’s delay to 2022. It would allow a two-week gap after F9 and a two-week head start on the Venom sequel, both of which will be predominantly male-driven anyway. It’s also part of the early summer corridor where the first Wonder Woman enjoyed so much success.
