Director Patty Jenkins fears her Wonder Woman sequel will become the latest blockbuster to miss a 2020 debut.
The release of the much-anticipated DC Comics film, Wonder Woman 1984, has already been bumped twice due to the coronavirus pandemic, and now the director admits she can’t be sure the movie will hit cinemas in time for Christmas.
"I don’t think anybody can be confident of anything right now," Patty says. "We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like."
The film is currently slated to open on 25 December and Jenkins remains hopeful about the Christmas Day release.
"It feels totally possible to me," she tells Variety. "It’s unbelievably surreal. The biggest surreality about it is it’s supposed to be one adventure, right? You sign on to the movie, you write the movie, you direct the movie, you make the movie, the movie comes out, and you move on. Instead, like, I spent three years doing one thing, seven days a week, and then I just popped out of it to just nothing. No evidence of that."
The film, set in 1984, reteams Wonder Woman Gal Gadot with Chris Pine, while Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig portray the movie's villains.
