So when exactly will Wonder Woman 1984 hit theaters? While certain delayed movies like A Quiet Place Part II don’t have a new release date yet, Variety revealed Warner Bros. has nailed down a new time for Patty Jenkins’ sophomore DC blockbuster to hit theaters. And it’s just a few months later, specifically on August 14th. So the rabid DC fanbase won’t have to wait too long until catching up on Diana and her adventure during the Cold War.
Of course, Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t the only movie to end up being bumped for the time being. John M. Chu’s In The Heights movie was due out June 26, based off the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical of the same name. Warner Bros. has pulled the project from arriving in theaters, and unfortunately it doesn’t currently have a new expected ate. Miranda recently expressed his determination to put the movie out in theaters rather than streaming, and it seems the studio is in agreement.
Additionally, James Wan’s upcoming thriller Malignant and the animated Scooby Doo movie Scoob have both been pushed back. Scoob was going to arrive in theaters May 15th, and doesn’t have a release date. Malignant wasn’t supposed to hit theaters until August 14th, but Warner Bros. bumped the project in order to give Wonder Woman 1984 its new slot. Fingers crossed that theaters are back up and running by that point.
