2017’s Wonder Woman is perhaps one of the biggest hits that year – and one of the best superhero movies ever made – which makes this sequel a movie that fans are excited about. We think Gal Gadot rocks in her new golden armor, right?

Starring: Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter
Original Release Date: August 21, 2020
New Release Date: September 1, 2020
Those who grew up in the ’80s know who Bill and Ted are so it’s no surprise that fanboys are going gaga over the return of this most excellent pair of musicians if you can call them that.

New Release Date: October 16, 2020
Ten years ago the last of the Cabrini Towers was destroyed, the Candyman is once again set free and unleashes terror in Chicago.

Starring: Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Charlie Heaton
Original Release Date: April 13, 2018
New Release Date: August 28, 2020
This movie has been rescheduled a couple of times to avoid coinciding with other X-Men movie releases, namely Deadpool in 2018 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix in 2019. We’re just glad that it’s finally scheduled for release.
10. Top Gun: Maverick
Starring: Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, and Val Kilmer
Original Release Date: June 24, 2020
New Release Date: July 2, 2021

We hope that this pandemic goes away soon so we can all enjoy life the way we used to and hit the theaters as soon as we can.
