'Wonder Woman 1984' Might Not Open on Christmas Anymore Amid Pandemic

Wonder Woman 1984 is currently scheduled to open in theaters on December 25, but now everyone’s not so sure amid the pandemic.

Pedro Pascal, co-star of the Gal Gadot-led film, which has already moved release dates six times (three since the pandemic), got candid about the reality of the release date in an interview with Variety.

“As far as movie releases are concerned and the tremendous way that the industry is having to improvise around these circumstances, nothing is surprising. We’re all getting used to things shifting day-to-day, hour-to-hour, you know? That’s what we’re all dealing with,” he revealed.

“I don’t think anybody can be confident of anything right now,” director Patty Jenkins told Variety.

“We just don’t know what the course of COVID is going to be like,” she continued, adding that she is “very hopeful” her film can still open in December.

“It feels totally possible to me,” she said.

“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 [work]. I mean, that’s not true. I still work on, you know, Doritos bags bags and stuff like that all the time,” she said.

“For the longest time, the only people who’d seen the movie were the people who’d worked on the movie. We just showed our own agents. That was thrilling, to finally get to talk to people who didn’t know what the movie was. But it’s super weird to go from making a movie with such detail and being so excited for the experience of people getting to share in that with you, and then just going on to cleaning your house and cooking.”

“I don’t know,” Pedro Pascal went on to say about predicting the future of the film.

“That would that would be like assuming I know scientifically, economically, socially so many large things that are just way above my pay-grade. We have information, but still there’s so much more information to be had and sometimes the information feels like it changes so quickly. As maddening and as scary as that feels like to live with on a day-to-day basis, it does make sense, because this is new. Every time I’m like, ‘Well, why don’t we knoowwww?’ It’s like, because it’s a new virus. It just takes time to figure it out.”

In the meantime, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot are teaming up on an entirely separate story that’s making headlines.

Gal Gadot to Star in 'Cleopatra,' Reunite With 'Wonder Woman' Director Patty Jenkins!

Cleopatra is coming to life!

Paramount Pictures just won an auction for a film that has Gal Gadot as Cleopatra, helmed by Patty Jenkins, Deadline reported Sunday (October 11).

The two also work together on the Wonder Woman film series.

The period biographical drama will be written by Laeta Kalogridis.

“This is the first major project package won by Paramount Motion Picture Group President Emma Watts in an auction that came down to Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix and Apple, I’ve heard,” the outlet reported.

“The film will be produced by Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven, Jenkins, Gadot and her Pilot Wave Motion Pictures partner Jaron Varsano. Kalogridis will be the exec producer. Deal closed yesterday after Gadot — the film was her idea and generated by Pilot Wave — took part in a select number of Zoom pitches, accompanied by Jenkins, Roven and Varsano, with Kalogridis laying out the beats of an epic story that is based on the research she did after Gadot enlisted her.”

The report also notes that “there is an accelerated timetable and Paramount prevailed because the studio…created an urgency to mount a big budget theatrical release film as quickly as possible.”

There also appears to be a competition to get to telling the story of Cleopatra first.

“Sony Pictures and producers Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin have for years developed an adaptation of the Stacy Schiff biography Cleopatra. Angelina Jolie was attached and Lady Gaga was later rumored for a possible coronation following her Oscar-nominated performance in A Star Is Born. The list of potential directors has included James Cameron, Denis Villenueve and David Fincher. The film has been through many rewrites, last from David Scarpa. I hear most recently that Eric Roth is working on it, meaning there might be a footrace here between Sony and Paramount to go first.”

Patty Jenkins Says 'Wonder Woman 3' Likely to Be the Last in Franchise

Wonder Woman is coming to an end.

Director Patty Jenkins opened up about the fate of the Gal Gadot-led superhero franchise in an interview with Geek, via ComingSoon.

The sequel to the first Wonder Woman movie of the franchise, Wonder Woman 1984, is still set to hit theaters on October 2.

WW84 gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn’t accommodate in the first movie. I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven’t seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil, she tries to show bad people how to improve. It’s an interesting dilemma. The next one is probably my last Wonder Woman movie, so I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully,” Patty explained to the outlet.

Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig, the stars of Wonder Woman 1984, recently revealed that it “isn’t really” a sequel. See what they said!

Patty Jenkins Shares New Details About 'Wonder Woman 1984'

Patty Jenkins is dishing on Wonder Woman 1984!

During a new interview, The 48-year-old director/writer opened up about what Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) is up to in movie.

According to Empire Magazine, Wonder Woman 1984 opens with Diana working at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., where she can keep an eye out for dangerous mystical artifacts.

“It’s a world with other gods and other lores,” Patty shared with the mag.

While she didn’t say if Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah (Kristen Wiig) and Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) are looking to get their hands on some sort of object, but Patty did dish on why Barbara turns into Cheetah.

“What makes Barbara turn into Cheetah is feeling like she’s never been as good as someone like Diana,” Patty explained. “She reminds me of certain people I’ve known who have such low self-confidence, that they’re always holding themselves back. Then once they start to embrace change, out comes this ugly resentment built up over all those years.”

It was announced last month that the release of Wonder Woman 1984 has been pushed back from June to later in the summer.
