While most fans are disappointed to hear that they will have to wait a little longer for the highly-anticipated sequel, others are more curious about the reason behind the schedule change or seem to approve of the decision to move the release date out of the busy award season.

"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", Warner Bros. said in a statement.

When you woke up Monday morning, the release of Wonder Woman 1984 was just about a year away.

Warner Bros. will now release three comic book-inspired films in 2019: Shazam! in April and its Joker origin story in October, as well as Vertigo Comics' The Kitchen in September.

This new date could also shift Red Notice, an action flick that stars Gadot alongside former Fast and Furious cast mate Dwayne Johnson.

Wonder Woman 1984's new release date was previously going to be used for The Six Billion Dollar Man.

The sequel reunites Gadot with co-star Chris Pine. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Jenkins has characterized 1984 as a "totally different film" than its predecessor, saying it draws upon "things that we love" from the first, but is "its own movie completely" and "an entirely new adventure". "June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!", she wrote.
