Warner Bros’ Marvel Lady was an enormous important and financial success earlier this 12 months, and regarded by many to be the brightest spot to date within the younger DC movie universe. Whereas the Amazonian princess shall be gracing the large display once more on this weekend’s Justice League, her subsequent solo outing simply obtained a bit bit nearer. Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 2 is transferring up six weeks, from December 13, 2019 to November 1, 2019. Whereas no official cause was supplied for the rescheduling, this transfer was more likely to keep away from the leviathan that would be the trilogy-capping sequel Star Wars: Episode IX on December 20, 2019.
This transfer, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, comes after the discharge date change for Star Wars: Episode IX. Regardless of Disney’s greatest efforts to return to the normal Might launch for movies set in that galaxy far far-off, the change from Colin Trevorrow to The Pressure Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams necessitated the discharge date be pushed again. This additionally comes on the heels of Thor: Ragnarok‘s success within the first half of this month, additional proving the discharge of a significant superhero movie is now not certain to any month or season.
Assuming Star Wars: Episode IX‘s altered launch date did issue into Warner Bros’ resolution to launch Marvel Lady 2 sooner, there may be nothing incorrect with that. It’s merely pragmatism. Star Wars has owned December for the previous two years (and can possible quickly be three with The Final Jedi developing), and attempting to compete with the ultimate movie on this trilogy could be extremely silly from a enterprise standpoint. By transferring the movie to early November, Marvel Lady 2 now has extra runway to dominate the field workplace till Star Wars takes over. With time between big releases, studios can maximize out there audiences and never drive folks to sacrifice one movie to see one other. This not solely helps Marvel Lady 2, nevertheless it additionally helps Star Wars.
Marvel Lady 2 is a part of DC’s bold new film slate, and regardless of some hiccups and rumors, it has begun coming together. Star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins are each on board for the sequel and shall be well rewarded for his or her efforts, and Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham now engaged on the story with Jenkins. Whereas we do not know a lot about Marvel Lady 2 but, it has been reported that it is going to be one other prequel, this time set in the 1980’s.
