Warner Bros. has confirmed Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in theaters as opposed to being made available for streaming.
Earlier today, it was reported that Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich is considering making Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 available through streaming as opposed to releasing the film theatrically. However, Warner Bros. has confirmed to IndieWire that the studio is sticking to its plan to release highly-anticipated sequel in theaters nationwide.
Warner Bros. has also not yet announced a release date change for Wonder Woman 1984, which is currently scheduled to hit theaters in early June even as other tentpole projects are being pushed back amid the coronavirus pandemic. The decision to delay the release of certain titles and make others available digitally is prompted by the theater closings in the wake of the measure taken to slow the spread of the virus.
