Well, the studio and director are certainly doubling down on Wonder Woman 1984 releasing in theaters, but whether it will release on Christmas Day is anyone’s guess at this point. However, using deductive reasoning, there is a very high chance that WW84 will be delayed to a 2021 date.
In an interview with Reuters, Patty Jenkins reiterated that Warner Bros. is still not planning on releasing Wonder Woman 1984 through any streaming services like HBO Max or VOD at this time, despite the film’s continuing delays due to the pandemic.
Some of this year’s major Hollywood films, including Walt Disney Co’s “Mulan,” skipped cinemas and went straight to streaming. Jenkins said that option is not under consideration for her sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984.”
Jenkins also voiced her worries about a future world in which the theatrical experience is non-existent:
“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.”
Finally, the filmmaker stated that she hoped Wonder Woman 1984 will be “one of the very first ones to come back [to theaters] and bring that into everyone’s life.”
