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.

And..in a big piece of info, Carrie Fisher's character will live on; as they will use unreleased footage from VII to bring her back.
I have no issue because otherwise her character has a clunky end...

But isn’t this the exact thing Disney said they wouldn’t do back after TLJ came out?

No I think what they said was that they were not going to do that weird facial reconstruction thing that they did with Tarkin in Rogue One. I could be wrong though.
