There’s no better way to end 2020 and Christmas Day than enjoying DC Comics Wonder Woman 1984 which is expected to release to theaters and HBO Max on December 25.

With the lack of movie releases in 2020 and the uncertainty for the future of the DC Comics brand, fans are highly anticipating the release of the sequel to Wonder Woman from 2017.

WarnerMedia Studios settled for dealing with the implications that come with not postponing the movie until 2021 because it’s already been postponed so many times. Wonder Woman 1984 was expected to be one of the number one films in 2020, but because the movie is airing at no additional cost on HBO Max, the movie won’t be making as much money as it would have. 

The original Wonder Woman grossed over $821 million, making it the tenth highest-grossing film in 2017. Of course, fans awaited the sequel after the phenomenal success of the original film.

As the movie is set in 1984, Wonder Woman 1984 is bringing back the nostalgia of the ‘80s through fashion and music. The two main villains, Cheetah and Max Lord face Wonder Woman head-on with the help of Steve Trevor, Diana’s long-lost love. 

The trailer’s release shocked its watchers with the return of Steve Trevor but also with Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig starring as villains in the upcoming film. The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer released in late 2019 and it swept over the nation and left millions of fans guessing. As the movie release date delayed time and time again, the anticipation from fans grew more and more. 

In an interview, Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman 1984, explained how this movie was filmed like no other superhero movie. The team who produced the movie flew all over the world to capture the essence of the 80’s in the movie and “have some of the most extensive, incredible wire work that nobody’s ever done before because no one has ever tried.”

Critics support Patty Jenkins when she said the movie will excite its watchers. “Wonder Woman 1984 accomplishes what we look to Hollywood templates to do,” said Peter Deburge, a movie critic. He goes on to explain in his review how the movie takes its watchers away from their worries and reminds them how much they need a superhero.

After almost a year of waiting, WarnerMedia Studios decided to accommodate unprecedented times and let fans stream the highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 as early as December 25.
