Wonder Woman 1984 is currently on its sixth release date, and it seems that not everyone is confident in that one as well.
As the coronavirus pandemic has drug on, movies have had to change release dates multiple times. One of the hardest hit has been Wonder Woman 1984 that just can’t seem to find a happy location.
The latest move placed the sequel on Dec. 25, but even director Patty Jenkins seems to lack confidence at the moment. Speaking with Variety, Jenkins said, “I don’t think anybody can be confident of anything right now. We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like.”
Jenkins added that she was “very hopeful” and that “it feels totally possible to me.”
The director has spent more time with this film than most directors at this point, and it has been an odd adventure. “It’s unbelievably surrealThe biggest surreality about it is it’s supposed to be one adventure, right? You sign on to the movie, you write the movie, you direct the movie, you make the movie, the movie comes out, and you move on. Instead, like, I spent three years doing one thing, seven days a week, and then I just popped out of it to just nothing. No evidence of that [work].”
“For the longest time, the only people who’d seen the movie were the people who’d worked on the movie,” said Jenkins. “We just showed our own agents. That was thrilling, to finally get to talk to people who didn’t know what the movie was. But it’s super weird to go from making a movie with such detail and being so excited for the experience of people getting to share in that with you, and then just going on to cleaning your house and cooking.”
Will the Christmas date hold? We’ll just have to wait and see what the status of the pandemic is as we get closer.
Wonder Woman 1984 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 25.
