Wonder Woman 1984 was supposed to be the Christmas gift for theaters after everything they've had to endure in the year 2020. But like every other big-budget release, it appears that WW84's Christmas release may change.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. is debating two different options for the release of WW84. WB is considering either push back the superhero movie to summer 2021 or keep the movie on its December 25 for theaters as a limited run and then put it on HBO Max in early January.

Right now, WB is wanting to make sure that WW84 is played in theaters, no matter what type of release it will end up as. Writer/director Patty Jenkins has also made it clear that her movie is designed for the big screen and is intent on making sure it plays in theaters. A WB representative who spoke to Variety stated that "WW84 will be in theaters."

If not for the recent news of a COVID vaccine that may be released in 2021, I could see WB deciding to release the movie on Christmas and then have it go to HBO Max. But because of the positive news about the vaccine, I think WB will want WW84 to be pushed back to summer 2021. I'm sure theaters will want something as big as Wonder Woman to be around for Christmas to help end their year on a high note and/or to keep their business alive, but I think WB will want to make sure their superhero movie becomes the billion-dollar grossing global success that it could be.

I hope they choose either strategy and keep their word on it having a theatrical release regardless. I believe many people, including myself, would love to see this in a theater, as it should be seen. But unfortunately for theaters and for audiences, it is out of our control, and all we can do is wait and see what WB decides.
