UPDATE: So, it looks like Warner Bros took down the trailer that confirmed the release date. It has been confirmed and shared by other outlets, such as the Hollywood Reporter.
Wonder Woman just couldn’t catch a break with one delay after another. It once was going to kick off the summer movie season, but now Wonder Woman 1984 fell victim to the beast that is 2020. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the film has had to move its release date multiple times with director Patty Jenkins adamant that the film will play on the big screen. She promised that we will receive the theater experience that we have all taken for granted until these difficult times.
It’s now been confirmed via a new promo for the film, that fans’ return to the DCEU could get a lot more comfortable. The film is keeping its current release date of December 25, 2020, but will also stream on HBO Max. This reveal makes it one of the service’s biggest additions and is sure to lure plenty of more subscribers to the service that launched mid-pandemic this year. The timing is also perfect, as HBO Max was finally added to the Amazon Fire TV service. Current subscribers to HBO Max fret not, you won’t have to pay a dime more to enjoy the film, as it will not be blocked behind a paywall. This announcement also came alongside a brand new trailer, which you can check out right here:
Wonder Woman 1984 will feature the return of Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. This time around it is Trevor that has to adapt to a new world, as Diana must face new foes in the form of Kristen Wiig‘s Cheeta and Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord.
