It looks like the DCEU has finished up productions for 2018. Todd Phillips had just recently announced the wrap of his Joker movie, and now news has come out that Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins have finally wrapped production for Wonder Woman 1984.
The announcement comes from Gal Gadot’s Instagram:

We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special.. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I'm so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie. Couldn't ask for better partners on this.. I'm so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves .. I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you! Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience.. This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud… Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day. I'm so happy and excited, can't wait to share it with you in 2020! ❤️ Gal
Originally the movie was set to come out November of next year, but WB had opted to give WW84 a June 2020 release date. Fans shouldn’t worry though, as this move looks more of a tactical strategy. There wasn’t any news of trouble within the production… that we know of.
As for the story, Wonder Woman 1984 is set to place Diana during the end of the Cold War. We know that Kristen Wiig has been cast as the antagonist Cheetah, but some are convinced that there is a bigger villain that is yet to be announced. The speculation is pointing toward Pedro Pascal’s character who is suspected to be Hades in disguise. How else would Steve Trevor be brought back to life if not by the Lord of the Dead?
For now, Wonder Woman 1984 stands to be one of two DCEU films announced for 2020. Birds of Prey will come out February of the same year, and there’s still plenty of time to start production on a third 2020 movie—hopefully Matt Reeves’ The Batman solo film.
After the success of Aquaman, it looks like the DCEU is back, and it may be a matter of time before we get some announcements for more DC solo films.
