Wonder Woman gets new release date as Warner Bros. shuffles around films

New, 35 comments

It's a good day to be a Wonder Woman fan.

Warner Bros. announced today that it had shuffled around the release dates for a couple of its films, including Wonder Woman. The film, which was originally supposed to hit theaters on June 23, 2017, will now be released on June 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio's adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic, The Jungle Book, also received a new release date a full year later than originally planned. The film will now roll into theaters Oct. 19, 2018, instead of Oct. 6, 2017. Warner Bros. didn't provide any specific reason as to why the film was pushed back, but Polygon has reached out to the studio for comment.

Warner Bros. also announced the release dates for three untitled films, including two DC-related projects. Audiences can expect two more superhero movies on Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019. Although unannounced, chances are that one of those spots will be taken for Ben Affleck's standalone Batman film. The actor, who played the caped crusader in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, recently confirmed that he was working on the script for the movie and would be directing it.

There's also a good chance that the other date could be taken for a second standalone Superman film. Snyder said that he had plans to move forward with the project, with Henry Cavill on board to reprise his leading role.

The studio will release another untitled film in The Jungle Book's original spot, but this will have no connection to the DC cinematic universe.
