'Wonder Woman' Gets a New Release Date

Along with the news that Wonder Woman is arriving a few weeks early, Warner Bros. has also added two untitled DC movies to its upcoming DCEU slate through the end of 2020.

The Wonder Woman solo film starring Gal Gadot has had its release schedule shifted.

Despite the wave of backlash against Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, there were elements to Zack Snyder's movie that stood out.

It has date plans (but no titles) for two other DC Comics-based films, coming out October 5, 2018, and November 1, 2019. While the move up may seem like a vote of confidence, it could also indicate trouble for Sony's Bad Boys 3, which was also slotted for June 2 along with the animated film Captain Underpants.

Wonder Woman isn't the only movie on Warner's docket that's getting relocated.

That third mystery "WB event" film (another mystery "WB event" film was scheduled for August 11, 2017 last year) takes the place of the studio's Jungle Book adaptation by first-time director Andy Serkis.

"I've got to say that personally I'm absolutely thrilled that Warner Brothers have changed the delivery date of our movie", said Serkis.

The studio is also pushing its Jungle Book: Origins film - not to be confused with the Jon Favrau-directed retelling hitting theaters next weekend - from October 6, 2017 to October 19, 2018.
