DC tentpole Wonder Woman 1984 has had its release date put back due to coronavirus.

The sequel had been due for a US release on June 5, but will now hit the big screen on August 14, 2020.

Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement: “When we greenlit WW 1984 it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theatres on August 14. We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then.”

Warner Bros. also announced that it is delaying the release of Jon M. Chu’s June musical In The Heights, May animated film Scoob! and horror pic Malignant, the latter of which was due to open on August 14.

No new release dates have been announced for that trio of films.

All three titles join a long list of studio titles to have been delayed, including Fast & Furious 9, Black Widow, Mulan, No Time to Die and A Quiet Place: Part II.

Cinemas across the world are now closed as countries impose lockdowns in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.
