Usually the movie comes out approximate to the tie-in stuff hitting the shelves, but since the pandemic there's been a lot of turmoil in how ancillary product comes out, for example the flurry of Gal Gadot Wonder Woman stuff that appeared last summer, but the release on the actual movie was delayed, moved and did not eventually land until December 25, 2020.
