As 2020 continues to be a complete disappointment for movie fans all over the world, this comes as yet another difficult decision for a major studio with so much on the line alongside this movie. With the world still working to make it safe for large gatherings to make their way back into every day life, that aspect of life is proving to be a necessity for big budget action films like Wonder Woman 1984.
A new report from Variety has revealed that Warner Bros. executives are debating on what to do with the release of Wonder Woman 1984 from the DC Extended Universe. Sources close to this story say the most viable options right now are keeping the theatrical debut on December 25, 2020 and having it premiere on HBO Max in early January, or shifting the release even further to the summer of 2021.
Gal Gadot’s DCEU sequel has previously held release dates on June 2, August 14 and October 2 before its currently set debut on December 25, but a continued spike in COVID-19 cases has made it tough for Warner Bros to feel comfortable releasing the movie to the world, especially in major metropolitan areas. With the threat of another widespread shutdown in the mix, the studio has been forced to weigh out its options, even though that puts yet another anticipated superhero movie further out of fans’ grasps
