We’ve been hearing for a little while now that Warner Bros. might be cooking up a new plan for the release of Wonder Woman 1984. Now those plans have become concrete.
Overnight the studio has confirmed that the film, originally due for release back in June, will now hit both cinemas and HBO Max in the US on December 25. This will give fans in America the chance to go to a cinema if they have the opportunity, whilst those who would prefer to watch at home can do so without the fear of being exposed to Covid.
HBO Max recently confirmed it will soon be coming to the Amazon platform which leaves Rocku as the only major platform still unsupported by the service. What HBO Max still cannot offer however is 4K streaming which will upset some fans.
Both Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins have released a statement on the announcement:
I can't wait for the world to see this amazing woman on the screen. She'll blow your mind and warm your heart. @GalGadot killed it in this film, and she does all that great and hard work for only the most honorable reasons. She is a true #Wonderwoman so I hope you enjoy #WW84 https://t.co/Q7fYuNAEab— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) November 19, 2020
Unsubstantiated rumours point to Wonder Woman 1984 shifting release dates in international territories to December 16. Whilst we wait for confirmation on this date we can confirm that the studio does still plan to release the film theatrically in all markets where they are able to do so.
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.
