    "Wonder Woman 1984" Is Having Its Release Date Pushed Back (Again), And Will Now Be Released In October

    And it's only one of several big films that are having its release date changed.

    It goes without saying that Wonder Woman 1984 is one of the most anticipated movies of 2020.

    The film was originally supposed to be released on June 5th, but in March, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, it was announced that the film's release date would be pushed back to August 14th.

    But yesterday, the film's director, Patty Jenkins, shared the news that the movie's release date had been pushed back yet again. This time to October 2nd:

    Wish we were sharing our film yesterday but there are more important things going on in our world we'd rather you focus on for now. Thank you to our fans for being so great, by our sides. Can’t WAIT for you to see it! Sending love and healing to the world. See you October 2nd!!

    And, as Gizmodo points out, the decision to move the film's release date might be due to the fact that Christopher Nolan's new film, Tenet, has also had its opening pushed back from July 17th to July 31st.

    Both films are being released by Warner Bros. and given the uncertainty of how the box office will rebound (as movie theaters begin to reopen) it makes sense that the studio would want to space out what are sure to be two of its biggest films.

    But WW1984 and Tenet aren't the only Warner Bros.' movies to have its release dates changed! The Matrix 4 has had its date pushed back almost a whole year — from May 21, 2021, to April 1, 2022.

    The film was in production, but stopped filming because of the pandemic. Godzilla vs. Kong (which was supposed to open this November) will now be released in The Matrix 4's spot of May 21, 2021.

    So yeah, we'll have to wait an extra two months to see Diana Prince kick-ass and an extra year to see Neo back in the Matrix.

    I guess in the meantime I'll just rewatch WW1984 trailer over and over:
