The shift moves the film away from director J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode IX, which will arrive in theaters Dec. 20, 2019.

Starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman earned $821.8 million worldwide, becoming the seventh-highest grossing release of 2017. Gadot reprises her role this week in Justice League, which unites Diana with Batman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg to protect Earth from the threat of Steppenwolf and the invading forces of Apokolips.
