Patty Jenkins wants to move up the release date of Wonder Woman 1984

Patty Jenkins now wants to move up the release date of Wonder Woman 1984, despite being the one responsible for pushing it back in the first place.

At San Diego Comic-Con International 2017, Warner Bros. made the announcement that the second solo outing of Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, would bow into theaters on December 13, 2019. Few months later, the studio decided to move up its release to November 1, 2019. But almost a year later, it was pushed back to June 5, 2020.

Fans are a bit disappointed that Wonder Woman 1984 won't make it to the theaters this year, even when its production had wrapped up last December. And apparently, Jenkins too is frustrated about having to wait for the movie's release. But she has none but herself to blame for that.

A new interview clip has surfaced on web where we find the director revealing that she was the one who had been lobbying for the summer 2020 release date. But now that she has watched the first cut, she badly wants to release it sooner. In her words:

It's so funny. For all the entire time that we were making the movie, I was lobbying – because they were wanting to move it up much earlier – and I was like, "˜You guys, it’s got to be summer of 2020, like it’s got to be,' and that’s what I always wanted. And now, I’ve just screened a version of the film, and now I’m like, ‘Oh my god, can we move it back up again, I’m dying to release this film.' But of course, it's good and it's fun, but it's frustrating to have to wait.

You can check out the interview clip below!

Although Patty Jenkins is now confident enough about Wonder Woman 1984 that she wants to move it back to its 2019 release date, Warner Bros. won't probably do that now. It has already given the November 1 release slot to Ed Norton's Motherless Brooklyn, while Paramount Pictures is releasing Tim Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate on that day. But perhaps, the studio could move it up a few weeks and launch it in April or May of 2020, with Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey arriving on February 7, 2020.
