Is Wonder Woman 1984 going to debut on streaming platforms? Not is director Patty Jenkins has anything to say about it.
In a new interview with Reuters, Jenkins was asked about the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on cinema globally. The director is rightly concerned that the global pandemic may have irrevocably changed the cinema experience.
“If we shut this down, this will not be a reversible process,” the filmmaker said. “We could lose movie theater-going forever. It could be the kind of thing that happened to the music industry where you could crumble the entire industry by making it something that can’t be profitable. I don’t think any of us want to live in a world where the only option is to take your kids to watch a movie in your own living room, and not have a place to go for a date.”
In a later tweet Jenkins would reaffirm that Wonder Woman 1984 WILL be a theatrically released movie saying “direct to streaming is not even being discussed.” That should hopefully put those pesky rumours to bed…
Gal Gadot returns in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman 1984. The film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. And Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins.
Wonder Woman 1984 is expected to hit cinemas across the UK on December 26, 2020.
