Wonder Woman is one of the biggest hits in the DCEU so far, and a lot of people are eager for the release of the sequel Wonder Woman 1984. The film was originally supposed to come out November of this year, but the release was pushed back to June 2020 to give more room for director Patty Jenkins to work. Now Jenkins has confirmed that she has a first draft of the film, and now she wishes it came out earlier.
This was an interview of Jenkins that came out on Facebook:

“I was like, ‘you guys, [the movie has to release] the summer of 2020,’ and that was what I always wanted, and now I’ve just screened a version of the film, and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, can we move it back up again?’”
Admittedly, a November release would have done well for Wonder Woman 2, considering that the only other big film that would come out that month would be Frozen II. With a release set for June 2020, the only competition that WW84 has right now is an untitled Pixar film, which we’ll hopefully find out more about later this year.
For now, 2019 is looking at only 2 DC movies. Shazam! has come out already, and it was actually a big success, and now everyone is waiting on the Joaquin Phoenix led Joker film, which is set in an alternate timeline for DC. Let’s just hope it comes out great and doesn’t become another tumble in the DCEU’s recently steady track record.
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to release June 5, 2020.
