Pictures theoretically along with its digital streaming on HBO Max as well. This news was confirmed at a press release from Warner Bros. Pictures that the film will be made available for one month on HBO Max digital platform and will be premiered in international theatres on December 16th, 2020.

Therefore, it is excellent news for all HBO Max subscribers as they have the opportunity to watch the film in the comfort of their homes. The per month streaming cost of HBO Max is around $14.99 and beyond the monthly subscription fee, it won’t cost you anything to watch the film.

The reason behind releasing the movie on HBO Max grows over with the uncertainty that comes with the theatre release of shows and films. Due to COVID-19, many TV shows and films had to face a long delay in the premiere launch and now they are all waiting for the pandemic situation to normalize so that shows and films can be released internationally. Also, if theatres open, there is still that uncertainty about people coming and watching the film whose outcome is most likely on the negative side. This is why Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to release the movie on HBO Max so that the number of subscribers can also boost up to a higher level and the movie reaches a massive number of audiences.

Wonder Woman 1984 was originally planned to release in June 2020 but due to the worldwide pandemic, the movie had to face a long delay. However, after several months of patience, the movie is finally releasing on December 16th in theatres worldwide. Fans have been waiting for a long time now to watch their favorite superwoman once again. Also, Gal Gadot fans are very excited to see her reprising her role as Wonder Woman. The first movie made a massive profit of $800 million worldwide and the audience has high hopes for the second installment of the movie as well. Let’s keep the hopes high and wait for our favorite female superhero to arrive soon.
