“Wonder Woman” Movie Gets Pushed Up; More DC Films Dates Announced


More DC movies. That’s what you wanted right? Right?

Warner Bros. has pushed Andy Serkis’ “Jungle Book: Origins” back a year to 2018 and moved “Wonder Woman” forward three weeks to June 2, 2017.


“Jungle Book” is moving from Oct. 6, 2017 to Oct. 19, 2018 — giving it more than two years of separation from Disney’s “Jungle Book” movie. Both films are based on the Rudyard Kipling book. Disney’s version, directed by Jon Favreau, comes out April 15.


Warner’s “Jungle Book” is using performance capture technology. Serkis said in a Facebook post Wednesday that he was grateful for the additional time.


“I’ve got to say that personally I’m absolutely thrilled that Warner Brothers have changed the delivery date of our movie,” he said. “The ambition for this project is huge. What we are attempting is an unprecedented level of psychological and emotional nuance in morphing the phenomenal performances of our cast into the facial expressions of our animals.”


“Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, who debuted in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” It had been set to open on  June 23, 2017.


Warner Bros. also set dates for two untitled DC films: Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019. An untitled WB event film is slated for Oct. 6, 2017.
