In a move that will surely shake the industry, Warner Bros. makes the decision to debut DC Comics blockbuster Wonder Woman 1984 on their streaming service, HBO Max.
The studio is planning to release the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel on Christmas day on HBO Max with a limited theatrical release. Although we’ve seen similar shifts in release strategy recently, including Warner Bros. debuting Scoob! on VOD then HBO Max, 1984 serves as the biggest film yet to make the drastic adjustment.
Warner Bros. seemingly released the news too early via their official trailer, which has been made private.

In a world where Walt Disney was forced to move major blockbuster Mulan to streaming, making Disney+ customers pay a hefty fee to watch it, it’s not all too surprising Warner Bros. makes a similar move. However, instead of putting a premium price tag on top of the streaming fees, Wonder Woman 1984 arrives on the HBO Max at no extra cost.
