Apparently we have to wait an extra seven months to found out how Steve Trevor could possibly return for the Wonder Woman sequel since movie’s premiere was pushed back from Nov. 1, 2019 to June 5, 2020.
This push was prompted by the success Wonder Woman found as a summer release, according to Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution.
Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, announced the date shift on Twitter. She wrote that the new date is the film’s “rightful home.”
Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!

Wonder Woman 1984 replaced the originally scheduled premiere of Mark Wahlberg’s Six Billion Dollar Man, which has been taken off the studio’s release schedule.
So what’s replacing Wonder Woman 1984 next fall? Another female-driven film—the Charlie’s Angels reboot, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. This is a five week push back for the movie, which started filming in September.
Both movies are now the only films set for release on their respective dates.
