About Coronavirus 2020

Washingtonian is keeping you up to date on the coronavirus around DC.

Earlier this week, Wonder Woman 1984 joined a growing list of Hollywood films that have been delayed because of the coronavirus crisis.

Wonder Woman 1984 is partly set in the DC area, so, in addition to not being able to leave your house, you won’t be able to see all the ways its filmmakers imagined how Washington looked back then.

Commander Salamander back in Georgetown? DELAYED.

The Hirshhorn’s courtyard filled with breakdancers? DELAYED.

Pennsylvania Avenue strewn with period-appropriate cars (and an anachronistic bike lane)? DELAYED.

Perhaps most heartbreaking of all, Landmark Mall brought back to life? DELAYED.

August can’t come fast enough.
