The brand new launch date is probably going a approach to give the DC sequel some respiratory room, given Star Wars: Episode IX – the closing chapter of the brand new trilogy from J.J. Abrams – has a launch date of December 20, 2019. Warner Bros. had chosen December 13 again when Episode IX was scheduled for Might 2019, and beneath the wings of Colin Trevorrow.
However when Disney re-hired Abrams rather than Trevorrow in September, it pushed the discharge of Episode IX to December as a substitute. Clearly, Warner Bros. isn’t enthusiastic about going up towards a blockbuster of that magnitude, made significantly extra essential by the truth that it should function the conclusive chapter of the sequence.
The brand new launch date of November 1 for Surprise Lady 2 places it every week away from the as-yet untitled 25th James Bond film, which selected November eight again in July this yr, and confirmed Daniel Craig’s return a month later.
Warner Bros. has additionally cleared the air on current rumours swirling round Gal Gadot, the star of Surprise Lady, who was mentioned to have reportedly threatened to give up except Brett Ratner’s manufacturing firm – RatPac Leisure – was lower off from the movie. Ratner has been accused by a number of girls of sexual assault, together with rape by a former worker.
In response, WB has severed all ties with Ratner, although it should see by way of a co-financing deal that ends in March 2018, fortunately a lot earlier than the discharge of Surprise Lady 2.
In fact the studio cannot afford to lose out on Gadot, given Surprise Lady is the one beacon of hope but for the flailing DC universe. It is also one of many highest-grossing movies of 2017, with over $821 million (about Rs. 5,365 crores) in ticket gross sales worldwide.
