Wonder Woman 1984 back to Summer 2020 release date.

Saw this via GeekTyrant, and I wondered why.  Apparently, it’s strategic:

Even though Wonder Woman went on to make over $820 million at the box office, it opened to just north of $100M. The miraculous nature of its run was the quality of the film and its cultural impact that allowed it to keep making a ton of money throughout the summer. This still could’ve been possible in the November 2019 slot, but would also put the sequel’s legs up against SonicTerminator 6Frozen 2, and more. There’s still plenty of competition in the summer of 2020, but after the success the first film had in the same window, WB saw an opportunity to move Wonder Woman 1984 back to this time frame after removing Six Billion Dollar Man from their slate.

Yeah, they were going to do Six Billion Dollar Man. Emphasis on ‘were:’ the project is apparently jinxed, or something*. But its leaving, ah, leaves a hole in the schedule that Wonder Woman can happily fill.  Guess we’ll just have to wait a few more months, that’s all.

*I wouldn’t have minded this one, actually.  I mean, dear Lord but the original special effects were cheesy and so was the rest of it.  They might have been able to make something interesting out of this particular sow’s ear.

    They’re doing a “live-action” Sonic the Hedgehog? With Jim Carrey? I’m cringing already.

    I remember watching the last (?) attempted revival of the Bionic franchise back in college. It had the then unknown Sandra Bullock playing the new bionically enhanced person.

      Yeah.. that genre needs to account for Full Metal Alchemist…

      … and the laws of physics, of course.

      The last attempted revival was a TV series in 2007. There was a vague over-arching plot with a “who can you trust?” Vibe. It only lasted for one season.

      Katee Sackhoff played a recurring previous bionic agent who’d gone rogue.
