According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, said, “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. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
‘Wonder Woman’ was one of 2017’s biggest success stories that received rave reviews from audiences and critics and became the highest-grossing live-action movie directed by a woman.
The sequel reunites Gadot with director Patty Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine. Meanwhile, Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig are joining the franchise in the follow-up.
