Warner Bros., in a move that was perhaps designed to allay any fears that some folks might (briefly) agonize over which fandom to indulge first at the box office next December, has announced the release dates for Wonder Woman and Justice League: Part One. The Patty Jenkins-directed tale of the superhero with a bespectacled alter ego (no, not that one) was said to have a June 2017 release date, and now it’s been confirmed that the movie will premiere on June 23, 2017. Meanwhile, the first film in Zack Snyder’s Justice League series will officially premiere on November 17, 2017. This leaves you plenty of time to see either—or both—before Star Wars: Episode VIII arrives in theaters in December 2017 to obliterate the competition.
To tempt the masses, Warner Bros. released the first footage of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman earlier this week, as well as some drab concept art for Justice League that’s surprisingly free of the mostly mythology-free villain that Snyder hinted would feature in the film.
With Wonder Woman and Justice League, Warner Bros. is now five movies-deep into the so-called “D.C. Extended Universe,” following the dour Man Of Steel, the gloomy-looking Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and the Suicide Squad movie whose new trailer suggests it won’t be as much of a drag as the impending Gothamite-Kryptonian clash.
