"Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot made the announcement on Twitter Monday alongside a logo of the film with its new release date.
"Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!" Gadot said.
The sequel, from returning director Patty Jenkins, was originally set for release on Nov. 1, 2019.

The project has now been removed from Warner. Bros.' release schedule.
"We had tremendous success releasing the first 'Wonder Woman' film during the summer, so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did," Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein said in a statement.
"This move lands the film exactly where it belongs."
