On Aug. 22, Jenkins and the cast of Wonder Woman 1984 kicked off the DCFandome event with a virtual panel. Gal Gadot, Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, and Pedro Pascal joined the director in answering fan questions about the upcoming film. 

The movie was originally slated for an Aug. 14, 2020 release. But due to lingering COIVD-19 safety measures, the Jenkins and the studio pushed the premiere date to October 2, 2020.

“I really think the movie is so great on the big screen,” Jenkins said during the panel. “We all worked so hard to bring something that would be a big visual spectacular great time. So we’re gonna stick it out. We believe in putting it in the cinema, but I can’t wait for you all to see more today, we’re going to show a little more. And I can’t wait for the movie to come out soon.”

Halfway through the event, both the fans and the panel were treated with a surprise guest. Legendary actor Lynda Carter, who’s known for her iconic portrayal of Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman in the late 1970s series, made a brief appearance and shared her love for the cast and the new reboot.
