WONDER WOMAN 1984: Even Director Patty Jenkins Is Unsure Whether We'll Still See The Movie This Year

WONDER WOMAN 1984: Even Director Patty Jenkins Is Unsure Whether We'll Still See The Movie This Year

In a new interview Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins admits that she's still unsure whether the sequel will meet its planned Christmas Day release date, revealing how difficult the process has been.

Wonder Woman 1984 was recently moved to December 25th, its sixth release date. However, with few big movies left in 2020, it's widely believed that the sequel will be delayed again, making an already busy 2021 even more hectic. Right now, it seems Warner Bros. is adamant that the DC Comics adaptation won't get a PVOD release, but there's every chance that could change.

Talking to Variety, director Patty Jenkins weighed in on the delay, admitted that even she's not sure whether her Wonder Woman sequel will play on the big screen before the year is over. 

"I don’t think anybody can be confident of anything right now," the filmmaker revealed. "We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like."

Jenkins added that she's "very hopeful" Wonder Woman 1984 will open on Christmas Day as planned, saying, "It feels totally possible for me." She did, however, point out how strange it is to be sitting on a completed movie no one can see for this long. "It’s unbelievably surreal. The 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," Jenkins concluded. "No evidence of that [work]."

It's definitely a shame that there's so much uncertainty surrounding Wonder Woman 1984, and it slipping into 2021 like Black Widow honestly wouldn't be a huge surprise at this point. COVID-19 isn't going anywhere, and it's hard to imagine the sequel turning a profit in the current climate.
