The film is slated to release on October 2, 2020
2020 has not been a good year for cinemagoers and cinephiles. Much to the havoc created due to a certain pandemic, Hollywood industry, like many other industries has taken a huge hit. However, cinemas are recovering from the losses and slowly opening up around the world.
Films such as New Mutant and Tenet already saw a theatrical release and thankfully people can begin to be hopeful for other bigger releases. Of the many, Wonder Woman 1984 has been one to watch out for ever since its first instalment released in 2017.
After much delay surrounding the release of the film, Wonder Woman 1984 has finally been locked down for an October 2, 2020 release worldwide.
Running Time of Wonder Woman 1984:
Before the final release date, rumors made the round that the film might premiere on the digital platforms instead of having a theatrical release. Warner Bros debunked these rumours and finally postponed the date from its initial June 5 slot.
Thanks to the Korea Media Rating Board, the duration of the film has been revealed. Clocking at 150 minutes 59 seconds, the sequel stands 10 minutes longer than its predecessor Wonder Woman which was 141 minutes long.
The film is just two minutes shorter than Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs Superman which stood at 152 minutes. Other DC films such as Man of Steel, Justice League and Aquaman clocked at 142 minutes, 120 minutes and 143 minutes respectively.
Suicide Squad stood at 123 minutes and Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stood at the last spot with just 109 minutes.
Joker ran for 122 minutes and Shazam! saw 132 minutes of running time.
Reprising her role as the Amazon princess, warrior and an immortal demigoddess, Diana Prince, a.k.a. is Gal Gadot. The first film saw Diana come into her own as the Amazon warrior and goddess. The sequel will see Wonder Woman in all her glory donning the infamous golden eagle armour that may or may not come with additional powers. Only time will tell.
We last saw Chris Pine’s character Steve Trevor dying in an explosion during the events of the first instalment. However, it appears the American pilot and spy is very much alive and kicking and will join Diana in her future endeavours.
Playing the key antagonist will be Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva or as fans might know her as Cheetah along with Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord, a business mogul.
Other cast members include Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen who return as Antiope and Hippolyta respectively.
The Wonder Woman successor will follow Diana’s journey decades after her last stint with looming threats in the form of Maxwell Lord and friend turned foe, Cheetah.
Returning as the showrunner of the film is Patty Jenkins who has surely brought in yet another amazing chapter of the Wonder Woman’s story.
