Wonder Woman 1984 Will Not Get A Digital Release Despite Coronavirus
Warner Bros has given confirmation that Wonder Woman 1984 will not skip out on cinema release. Taking out all the rumors about the movie getting a digital release. The production has cleared that the director Patty Jenkins will indeed get a theatrical run. The news comes after a grave coronavirus outbreak that affected several hundred thousand globally. Taking over 17,000 lives worldwide, the virus has forced the entertainment industry to shut down. It is for this reason that Universal studios pushed the release of Emma, The Invisible Man and The Hunt to video-on-demand. However, Warner Bros will continue to stick by their original plans. They will release the film nationwide as per their schedule.
Wonder Woman 1984 To Continue As Per Plans
Warner Bros has not announced a delay in the release date of Wonder Woman 1984. Gal Gadot’s latest movie is still set for release on June 5. Speaking of Warner Bros., the company has also not announced whether they will be delaying the release of streaming service HBO Max. However, do note here that the release of the streaming service will not benefit the new Wonder Woman movie. The movie did not have a plan for digital release anyways.
In Wonder Woman 1984, Gadot will reprise her role as Amazonian. She will reunite with co-star Chris Pine, Connie Nielson, and Robin Wright. This time, Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig will also join these stars. As studios scramble to anticipate the release of their shows or continue production, the Wonder Woman movie seems to be taking a bold step. Call it brave or call it otherwise, the decision comes as the US becomes third in the ranking of most cases in coronavirus.
Warners previously had to release Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey ahead of schedule. After getting a somewhat disappointing start since its opening with $200 million globally, the movie will now become a digital opportunity as the governments hold a lockdown in their country.
