This is a monumental decision for Warner Bros. and DC Films to have this highly anticipated sequel be released on HBO Max at the same time as in theaters, especially considering it’s set to be one of the DCEU’s most prominent releases in the near future. It’s still a mystery thinking about how well the film could do when released in theaters during a pandemic, but thankfully it’s now official that this new entry will be available to fans everywhere in just under a month and a half.
Warner Bros. has just confirmed, via a new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, that the film will be released concurrently in theaters and on HBO Max on December 25, 2020. HBO Max subscribers won’t have to pay any extra to stream the film starting on Christmas Day.
The Hollywood Reporter has reported on the December 25 hybrid release for the Wonder Woman sequel.
Now the questions come as to whether other studios will follow Warner Bros’ lead, even as the world tries to keep fighting the pandemic. Marvel Studios has already delayed their entire Phase 4 slate in theaters until May 2021, even though it has multiple releases set for Disney+ before then, and fans will be keeping a close eye on news from other major studios in the coming weeks as well.
