WONDER WOMAN 1984 Could Be Pushed To Next February Or June According To Box Office Analyst

Box Office Pro's chief analyst believes there's a very good chance Wonder Woman 1984 will end up moving from Christmas Day to next year following the news that Soul is now heading straight to Disney+...

Earlier this week, there was another major blow to DC fans when Warner Bros. decided to delay the release dates of The Batman, The Flash, Shazam! - Fury of the Gods, and Black Adam. Dune has also been pushed back by ten months, and all eyes are now on what the studio has planned for Wonder Woman 1984.

It was announced last night that Pixar's Soul will premiere on Disney+ on Christmas Day for free, leaving families with a choice: do they watch that animated flick from the comfort and safety of their own homes or do they risk heading to theaters in the midst of a pandemic to check out the Wonder Woman sequel? 

Director Patty Jenkins maintains that Wonder Woman 1984 will receive a theatrical release, but with twelve superhero movies opening over the course of sixteen months between March 2021 and July 2022, where can the movie slot in? 

Talking to Observer, Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Box Office Pro, shared his thoughts on what could become of Wonder Woman 1984. "Optimistically, there’s a window for a big tentpole around the Presidents and Valentine’s Day holiday weekend in February since Marvel’s Eternals vacated that spot," he explains.

"That could be a good fit if the fall and winter fight against the virus goes better than expected and New York, alongside Los Angeles, reopen theaters by then."

"Perhaps more realistically, June 11 looks like a great spot," Robbins continued. "Universal just left that weekend wide open with Jurassic World: Dominion‘s delay to 2022. It would allow a two-week gap after F9 and a two-week head start on the Venom sequel, both of which will be predominantly male-driven anyway. It’s also part of the early summer corridor where the first Wonder Woman enjoyed so much success."

Whether Wonder Woman 1984 does move from Christmas Day remains to be seen, but it would be no bad thing for Warner Bros. to have the sequel premiere at home and in theaters at the same time.
