Update: Warner Bros. has confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 will, in fact, be available in theaters and to HBO Max streaming service subscribers on December 25. In a press release, Chair and CEO of WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group Ann Sarnoff said, "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. 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."

It's been something many have speculated would happen. It looks like Wonder Woman 1984, the next DC universe film, will be premiering on the HBO Max streaming service on December 25, 2020. However, it will also be available in movie theaters that are open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The news was first reported in a tweet from user Wario64, who stumbled upon a trailer for the movie on YouTube, which reveals the HBO Max release. The video is now listed as private on YouTube, though GameSpot has reached out to Warner Bros for confirmation. The report has since been confirmed Warner Bros, which said the film will be available for HBO Max subscribers for a month.

The release of Wonder Woman 1984 has been something fans of the character played by Gal Gadot have been excited about for quite a while, only for delays to set the movie back. Originally, the film was supposed to hit theaters in 2019. However, it was delayed until June 5, before moving again to August 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It then shifted to October 2, before settling on the current December 25 release date. However, with many theaters not open, there was speculation it would be pushed even further into sometime in 2021.

Instead, it seems like Warner Bros. is using a similar tactic as Disney did with the digital release of Mulan. Unlike the Mulan release, though, it's worth noting that the alleged release date title card says the film will be available at no extra cost to HBO Max subscribers. To watch Mulan, Disney+ subscribers had to pay an extra $30 for access to the film.

As it stands, the move to offer Wonder Woman both in theaters and on HBO Max has not been officially announced by Warner Bros. Regardless, the release date for the film, at the moment, remains December 25.

Part of the reason they are releasing in December is that they want to campaign WW84 for the Oscars. The 2020 movie field will be very thin and WB thinks it has a shot at Best Director, Best Actress, and maybe even Best Picture.

@hiphipjorge9: I don't disagree, but I certainly like a big screen. Compromise either way.

@xZedZdeDx: He's calling the pandemic a conspiracy and saying the movie industry which has tanked during said pandemic is in on the conspiracy.

@alastor529: Yeah, the volumes it's speaking is that they desperately need numbers. They're only doing "pro consumer" things because they need the consumers.
