After being pushed back several times, Wonder Woman 1984 is sticking to its Christmas Day release date.
In addition to being released in theaters on December 25, Warner Bros. announced that the film will also be debuting on HBO Max that same day.
“As we navigate these unprecedented times, we’ve had to be innovative in keeping our businesses moving forward while continuing to super-serve our fans,” said Ann Sarnoff, chair and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, which includes Warner Bros. Pictures.
“This is an amazing film that really comes to life on the big screen and, working with our partners in the exhibition community, we will provide that option to consumers in the U.S. where theaters are open. We realize that a lot of consumers can’t go back to the movies due to the pandemic, so we also want to give them the option to see Wonder Woman 1984 via our HBO Max platform.”
This decision to forgo a traditional theatrical release is huge news because Wonder Woman 1984 is expected to be one of the biggest films of the year. Many people thought that the film would be pushed back to 2021 like Black Widow, Fast & Furious, and No Time to Die.
