Like many other films, the second Wonder Woman 1984 release date has been delayed by Covid-19. The eagerly anticipated Wonder Woman sequel is being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Warner Bros. has decided to push back the release date of Wonder Woman 1984. Here is everything you need to know about the movie.
When will Wonder Woman 1984 release?
Originally slatted on June 5, 2020, the movie has been postponed and now will release on August 14, 2020.
We made Wonder Woman 1984 for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema. In these terrible times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film to August 14th 2020 in a theater near you, and pray for better times for all by then pic.twitter.com/85ykQ8x6NE

Is there any trailer for Wonder Woman 1984?
Of course! The official trailer of the movie was released way back in December 2019. The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer gives us a good glimpse at the film’s eighties setting, a time important to the director. Here is the trailer for you to have a look:
What is the story and plot of Wonder Woman 1984?
Diana may have faced down the actual God of War in her previous outing, but now she has another villain to face: Maxwell Lord. Lord, in the character’s cinematic debut, is a master of manipulating human desires: we see Pascal’s face all over television screens in the trailer, so it’ll be interesting to see how his powers manifest in 1984. Also, we will see Steve Trevor alive in the movie. Not only did he heroically blow himself up in a plane packed with mustard gas canisters, but in the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, Trevor hardly looks a day older than he did in the Great War. That’s over 60 years before the setting of the sequel.
Who are the cast and crew of Wonder Woman 1984?
Warner Bros have announced that Gal Gadot will be returning to play the titular superhero in the next movie. Kirsten Wiig was confirmed to be playing the villain Cheetah in the new movie. Pedro Pascal has also been cast in the film, but his exact role has been kept under wraps until today (October 25). There’s been speculation for a while about who his character could be – those who said Maxwell Lord, an influential character in the Justice League’s formation, were correct. Director of the first movie, Patty Jenkins, will be returning for the sequel. DC Films’ co-chairman Geoff Johns has confirmed that he’d be involved.
