    I had my fingers crossed that Rian Johnson would come back. Or we'd get really lucky and maybe they'd snag Spielberg.

    Not sure how I feel about Abrams coming back as the replacement.

    It's a fine, if not boring, choice

    That's the word I was looking for, it's a boring choice but I guess they wanted to play it safe.

    The film has now been pushed back to (you guessed it) December 2019.

    There was no way that was not going to happen. The director thing is just a convenient excuse.


    And now where will Wonder Woman 2 move to?

    I would think they would put Wonder Woman for November now at this point, and to have a date similar of Justice League.

    Possibly. Will probably wait till Justice league comes out and see how it does. If it does poorly, they may shift to Summer.
