"June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!"

The sequel would have been released a month after the "Joker" which is scheduled to open on October 4, 2019.

Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman franchise, starring Gal Gadot in the title role, had been gearing up for its second solo film to feature the unbelievable Amazon (the fourth appearance of Gadot in the part), but now director Patty Jenkins will have a few more months to polish it up.

Despite Gadot's upbeat tone, the new date marks a seven-month delay in the film's release.

Studio bosses announced Monday that Wonder Woman 1984 won't open until June 5, 2020.

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Warner Bros.' decision to change the release date for Wonder Woman 1984. Seeing how the first film's June 2017 release, plus the positive reception and word of mouth, led to a massive box office haul, it is believable that this is a move to possibly make lightning strike twice.

Wonder Woman now steers clear of Disney's Frozen 2, releasing November 27, the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel, out December 13, and Star Wars: Episode IX, out December 20. "This move lands the film exactly where it belongs". Chris Pine also returns as Steve Trevor and Pedro Pascal joins in an undisclosed role.

It seems as though maybe Warner Bros. just wanted to give Wonder Woman 1984, which has the potential to beat the huge success of the first film, more time to breathe.

In an interview with the Sun past year, writer-director Patty Jenkins revealed her hopes for the sequel. But, I'd imagine, those movies will all bow to the might of Wonder Woman.
