When we greenlit Wonder Woman 1984, it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen, and we are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on Aug. 14. We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.
Prior to the June release, Wonder Woman was originally in line to hit theatres on 1st November 2019. The film was pushed back to June 2020 with the intention to turn this into a summer blockbuster.
