Now joining the list of postponed titles is Warner Bros’ “Wonder Woman 1984.” The film, directed by Patty Jenkins, was initially slated for a North American release on June 5. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is now being pushed to an August 14 theatrical debut.

Due to the increasing concerns of the coronavirus, many huge studio releases have taken a step back. They have either shelved their features indefinitely or rescheduled them into later in the year. This has happened with Disney’s properties, including the anticipated global rollouts of both “Black Widow” and the live-action adaptation of “Mulan.”

Director Patty Jenkins announced the postponement via Twitter:

“Wonder Woman 1984,” which stars Gal Gadot in return as Diana Prince, debuted its first trailer back at CCXP Brazil, where Jenkins and Gadot both took the stage to talk the heroine’s journey into the 1980s. Also in the cast are Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig’s Barbara Minerva/ Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal’s Max Lord.

Other titles that have been confirmed for later premieres include MGM’s “No Time to Die,” moving from an early April release to November. The pandemic has halted many feature productions, including Matt Reeves’s “The Batman,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “Nightmare Alley,” “Mission: Impossible 7” and Baz Lurhmann’s Elvis Presley feature, which stars the recently medically isolated Tom Hanks.

Select titles have also been moved to earlier streaming and VOD availability, with studios banking on the comfort of many who are staying at home when many U.S. cities have been announcing shelter-at-home orders and revised public restrictions to fight the spread of COVID-19. “Birds of Prey,” “The Invisible Man,” “Emma.,” and “The Hunt” are now available on VOD. As the pandemic continues, the industry can only wait and see what comes next for the year’s summer releases.
