is the latest film to be delayed as movie theaters across the country shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The film, which was supposed to open on June 5th, will now open on August 14th. Warner Bros. has also delayed In the Heights, a movie based on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical, indefinitely. Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated film, Tenet, is still on schedule for July 17th at this time.
“When we greenlit Wonder Woman 1984, it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14,” Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures chairman, said in a statement to Variety. “We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”

Wonder Woman 1984 follows Disney’s Mulan, Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, and Universal’s F9 in being delayed instead of receiving a digital-first release. DreamWorks’ Trolls World Tour will forgo a theatrical release completely and go straight to digital retailers like Amazon and iTunes.

They would have lost such an insane amount of money by releasing digital.

Delay loses a lot too but not nearly as much.

When you think about it Max Lord saves the day.

Patty Jenkins made a movie where a rich white man telling everyone in the world what to do is what saves us all, including Wonder Woman.

The idea that a man has the power to command people to make wishes and then renounce them must appeal to TDS afflicted individuals. It seems like one of their core beliefs.

Lord as main villain plus the hackneyed park rapist who gets gratuitously beat up position this movie as heavily invested in modern feminist symbolism. It has very little else to offer imo. Boring and dull for most of the runtime. PJ mastering the corporate crap production line. No doubt the token lazy feminism eases any guilt over writing such a bad story.

Isn't it Wonder Woman that tells the world what to do?
