Patty Jenkins & Gal Gadot Share New Wonder Woman 1984 Animated Poster & Words of Hope
The production and premiere delays due to the spread of COVID-19 have been unprecedented, but that, of course, doesn’t mean that we’ll never be seeing these films. What we are dealing with is a tremendous amount of uncertainty; the novel coronavirus does not have a finale date, so nobody knows for sure just when we’ll have this under control and it will be safe for all of us, including the studios, filmmakers, their casts and crew, and theater owners and employees can go back to work. Yet that day will come. With that in mind, the two driving forces behind Wonder Woman, co-writer/director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot, have taken to Twitter to share words of encouragement and a new animated poster. Their input comes after Warner Bros. announced that they’ve pushed back Wonder Woman 1984 from June 5 to August 14, joining a ton of other major releases in delaying their premiere, from Marvel’s Black Widow to the 25th Bond installment No Time to Die.
Check out the new poster, and Gadot’s hope for a brighter future, here:
In these dark and scary times, I am looking forward to a brighter future ahead. Where we can share the power of cinema together again. Excited to redate our WW84 film to August 14, 2020. I hope everyone is safe. Sending my love to you all. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/nzPUM7uQ1n

Jenkins’s Tweet preached the power of cinema (writer/director Christoper Nolan agrees) and to look ahead to August when, hopefully, people can once again come together in a theater to watch WW84:
We made Wonder Woman 1984 for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema. In these terrible times, when theater owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film to August 14th 2020 in a theater near you, and pray for better times for all by then pic.twitter.com/85ykQ8x6NE
