With the planned June 5 theatrical launch of Wonder Woman 1984 delayed to Aug. 14, Warner Bros. has updated the movie poster and also is issuing an animated digital poster.
In a social media post, the movie’s star, Gal Gadot, said she is looking forward to a brighter future for people, society and the power of cinema.
“In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead,” Gadot tweeted. “Where we can share the power of cinema together again. Excited to re-date our WW84 film to August 14, 2020. I hope everyone is safe. Sending my love to you all.”
In a separate tweet, the film’s director, Patty Jenkins, reiterated the studio’s support for a theatrical debut rather than offloading the title to retail channels, including transactional VOD and SVOD.
“Wonder Woman 1984 was made for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema. In these terrible times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film … in a theater near you, and pray for better times for all by then.”
