There's Going To Be A Wait For Wonder Woman Sequel

Hopefully your superpower is patience.

Despite breaking box office records, making more than $800 million worldwide, the hotly anticipated sequel to Wonder Woman will now hit cinemas three years after the release of the first film.

Not much is known about the sequel other than it seeing the return of both Gal Gadot and Chris Pine -- joined by Kristen Wiig.

Wiig is set to play Barbara Minerva, who eventually becomes Cheetah, one of Wonder Woman's greatest foes. Pine is somehow back in the fold, despite his character's explosive end in the first film.

The movie, titled Wonder Woman 1984 (because it's set in 1984) will now hit cinemas on June 5, 2020 -- despite it previously being set for a November 2019 release.

Gadot and the film's director Patty Jenkins both tweeted the announcement putting a positive spin on the delay with Gadot saying she was "super excited" to return to the film's "rightful home".

The Hollywood Reporter, Warner's president of domestic distribution said the first film saw "tremendous success" being released in June 2017.

"When we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs," they added.

Wonder Woman 1984 is one of the few remaining projects of Warner's DC Extended Universe after the studio announced that both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill would not return to their roles of Batman and Superman respectively.

The future looks uncertain for the other members of the critically panned Justice League, with Ezra Miller's standalone Flash movie still up in the air. Jason Momoa's Aquaman is set to hit cinemas next month.
