Despite a snazzy new FanDome trailer, the fact that several major markets — New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco — still haven’t reopened movie theaters and a need to give Tenet room to breathe at the box office are reportedly key reasons behind the new move.
The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman takes place, as the title suggests, in 1984, during the Cold War. Diana (Gal Gadot) is forced to go up against two enemies: the businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig), also known as Cheetah. Though the odds seem worse than ever, Diana is also rejoined by her old beau, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who seems to have been sucked through time and must adjust to an unfamiliar future.
This marks the sixth time the film has been delayed, and the third due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
