It looks like fans won’t need to wait quite as long for Wonder Woman 2. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman sequel has been moved up to Nov. 1, 2019, from its initial date of Dec. 13, 2019.
The shift in release date isn’t overly surprising when you note that Lucasfilm moved Star Wars: Episode IX to Dec. 20, 2019. With its new release date, Wonder Woman 2 doesn’t need to worry about competing with the biggest franchise on Earth.
Released earlier this year, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman broke multiple box-office records to become the highest grossing superhero origin story of all-time. Wonder Woman is currently the highest-rated film in the DC Extended Universe and the studio clearly wants to get started on a sequel.
Earlier this week it was rumoured that Gal Gadot was refusing to return for the Wonder Woman sequel unless Brett Ratner is removed from the project. Ratner is currently facing multiple accusations of harassment and Gadot doesn’t want anything to do with him or his company.
