After shifting release dates several times, Wonder Woman 1984 has finally locked down a release date, with a slight twist to it.
After weeks of rumors, it’s finally been announced that Wonder Woman 1984 is officially getting released on December 25 with no more delays to occur. The reasoning for this is that the Patty Jenkins-helmed and Gal Gadot-starring DCEU film will be released simultaneously on HBO Max and in whatever theaters are open by then.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be the second blockbuster to be released on a streaming service after Mulan was released on Disney+ in September. However, it has been confirmed that the film won’t cost any extra for subscribers.
After moving release dates several times, it’s nice to finally have a confirmed date for the long-awaited sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman. Originally supposed to be released in December 2019, it was moved up to November 2019, before being delayed to June 5, 2020.
Due to theater closures because of the COVID-19 pandemic, release for the film was delayed to August 14 before being pushed back again to October 2 and then finally to its final release date of December 25.
It’s been a wild ride, but it seems like Warner Bros. is willing to make the bet that they will make more money through HBO Max after taking a slight hit with Tenet earlier in the year. At the very least, they seem keen to make some of their money back instead of delaying even further.
With Wonder Woman 1984 now releasing on HBO Max, it will be the first DC Comics property to be newly released on the service. It will be followed by the likes of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Titans and Harley Quinn seasons 3, Young Justice season 4, and Doom Patrol season 3.
