Yesterday, Warner Bros. announced a new round of delays for some of their most highly anticipated films, including Wonder Woman 1984 and Godzilla vs. Kong.
Wonder Woman 1984, which had already been pushed back previously from June 5 to August 14, has now been moved again to October 2. There was a bit of confusion at first when the official Wonder Woman 1984 Twitter account posted (and quickly deleted) pictures showing the film’s new release date as November 25. The error has since been corrected.
Wonder Woman 1984 Director Patty Jenkins also took to Twitter to thank fans for their continued support and her excitement for them to see the film this fall.
Wish we were sharing our film yesterday but there are more important things going on in our world we'd rather you focus on for now. Thank you to our fans for being so great, by our sides. Can’t WAIT for you to see it! Sending love and healing to the world. See you October 2nd!! pic.twitter.com/BuOjMnlFsQ

At least we’ll still get to see that movie in 2020, though. Godzilla vs. Kong was pushed all the way back from November 20 to May 21, 2021, which had previously been the release date for the fourth Matrix film (and will now premiere on April 1, 2022). This also means that the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer us kaiju fans were expecting/hoping for next month might be back on the shelf for now, too.
Legendary Pictures posted a statement to Twitter from director Adam Wingard, who commiserated with fans disappointed about the delay but assured them the the film would be worth the wait.

Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi espionage thriller Tenet was also delayed, but only from July 17 to July 31 of this year. Considering how far so many other films have been pushed back, I think we can all manage to wait two more weeks for this one.
