Israeli actress Gal Gadot announced Monday that the sequel to Wonder Woman will be released seven months later than originally planned.

"Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home," Gadot tweeted. "June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!"

Despite Gadot's upbeat tone, the new date marks a seven-month delay in the film's release. The sequel to 2017's smash hit Wonder Woman - titled WW84 - was originally slated to be released on November 1, 2019. It was not immediately clear what Gadot was referring to by the "changing landscape."

But Warner Bros. executives followed Gadot's tweet by noting that it was thrilled to release the film in the summer, when many movies see greater box office success. The original Wonder Woman - which made more than $800 million - was also released in June.

The much-anticipated sequel to the film is set in the 1980s during the Cold War, and has been filming around Washington, DC, this year.

The delay to June 2020 moves the film away from competition with the supervillain movie Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix, which is slated to open in October 2019. But Red Notice, an art heist thriller starring both Gadot and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is now scheduled to open just a week after the Wonder Woman sequel.

Of course, a great deal could still change between now and June 2020.
