According to a new report, talks have begun about another potential change to the Wonder Woman 1984 release date.
Sources with the exhibition industry have told Deadline that Warner Bros. is apt to move Wonder Woman 1984 back once again. The rumors are suggesting either late Nov. or possibly bumping Dune from its Dec. 18 release date.
The belief is that Warner Bros. was indeed waiting to see how Tenet would perform upon its release. While it took in $20 million in its opening weekend in the U.S., it has performed well overseas with over $130 million to date. With movie theaters in Los Angeles and New York City still not expected to re-open until late Sept. or early Oct., sending out another major release seems risky at this juncture.
Additionally, if Wonder Woman 1984 was to keep its Oct. 2 release date, it could be seen as competition to Tenet which will need every dollar it can garner in this limited seating capacity environment.
With the way things have been going with the coronavirus, and the current state of theaters, the change to the Wonder Woman 1984 release date has seemed inevitable. Add in that marketing for the film has gone quiet again following the DC FanDome trailer, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time.
Nothing is official yet about the move, but we’re suggesting that you don’t set those plans for Oct. 2 in stone quite yet.
