If you're one of the many superhero fans champing at the bit for the highly anticipated sequel to the 2017 Warner Bros. hit Wonder Woman, you'll want to get a new countdown going for its release. Following Wonder Woman 1984's premiere delay from June 5 to Aug. 14, the film has slotted an even later date and will hit theaters on Oct. 2. "Wow, it's finally happening, & I couldn't be more excited!" Gal Gadot tweeted on June 14. "To all the fans that stuck w/ us through this time, thank u so much! We couldn't have done this w/o you. I'm so excited for you to get to see this #WW84, it will be worth the wait."

Back in July 2019, the studio revealed that the sequel, which will take place during the Cold War in the '80s, wouldn't hit theaters until Dec. 13, 2019. Then Warner Bros. decided to move the date up by a month, opting for Nov. 1, 2019, instead. And then, in October 2018, Entertainment Tonight reported that the DC Comics follow-up had been pushed way, way back to June 5, 2020. Then, of course, the film industry hit a roadblock when the coronavirus pandemic struck, leading to many Spring and early-Summer film premieres to be put on ice - including Wonder Woman 1984. Talk about an emotional roller coaster.

Luckily, the film has only been pushed back by a couple of months after its most recent release date, and it's a pretty optimistic move. Most films have been delayed indefinitely, but at least there's light at the end of the tunnel for Diana and company. Until Oct. 2, we'll have the thought of Diana reuniting with Steve Trevor to keep us going!
