The film was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres on 1 November, 2019, reported Variety. The vacated slot has now been taken by Charlie's Angels reboot, Sony announced hours after Warner Bros. decided to push back the release of the sequel to Wonder Woman, informed Variety.
"We had tremendous success releasing the first Wonder Woman film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs," Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.' president of domestic distribution, said in a statement.
The sequel reunites Gadot with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine, with Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig joining the franchise. The original film revolved around Amazon princess Diana who set out to stop World War I, believing the conflict was started by the longtime enemy of the Amazons, Ares, after American pilot and spy Steve Trevor crash-landed on their island Themyscira and informed her about it.
