Recently, Warner Bros. risked the launch of “Tenet” on the big screen, becoming the first blockbuster since cinemas were closed in March due to the pandemic. The $ 200 million film, directed by Cristopher Nolan, grossed $ 20 million over the first weekend.
Sources say the studio waited to evaluate domestic ticket sales for “Tenet” before making a decision on postponing “Wonder Woman.”
The launch of “Wonder Woman 1984”, directed by Patty Jenkins, has been postponed several times due to the pandemic. Initially, it was to premiere on June 5, then it was moved to August 14 and October 2.
The production of the film cost about 180 million dollars, without taking into account the high global marketing fees.
