Earlier this week, the makers of Tenet announced about the shift in its release date for two weeks, to July 31, due to the ongoing pandemic. Warner Bros. went on to announce more changes in their release calendar. All high profile and most-awaited films like Wonder Woman 1984, Godzilla vs. Kong and Matrix 4 have been postponed by months and some even a year.
Patty Jennkins's Wonder Woman 1984 starring Gal Gadot, was all set to release on August 14, but now has been removed from the summer calendar to October 2, 2020. This is the third change in the release date for the superhero film. The sequel was originally set to release in November 2019, but was moved to June 2020 for a summer release.
