Wonder Woman 1984 director talks direct to streaming rumours
Despite the film being pushed back again, Patty Jenkins has confirmed it's still headed for a cinematic release.
Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins has addressed rumours about the upcoming blockbuster potentially heading straight to streaming.
On Twitter she wrote “direct to streaming is not even being discussed. We are still 100% behind the theatrical experience for #WW84 and supporting our beloved theatre business.”
Her post comes a few weeks after it was announced that the film’s release date had been pushed back again from 2nd October to Christmas Day.
Talk of the film being released on streaming began to increase with the recent news that a number of major cinema chains are in trouble.
Cineworld will temporarily be closing all of its theatres across the US and UK and Odeon is to only open a quarter of its theatres at the weekend.
It doesn’t look like this situation will be getting better anytime soon with the confirmation that other huge releases, like No Time to Die, sci-fi adaptation Dune and fellow DC superhero outing The Batman, will also all be delayed again.
Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot as the superpowered Amazon who must face off against the mysterious businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the Cheetah (Kristen Wiig).
"Because I know how important it is to bring this movie to you on a big screen when all of us can share the experience together, I'm hopeful you won't mind waiting just a little bit longer," Jenkins said of the new premiere date.
"With the new date on Christmas Day, we can't wait to spend the holidays with you!"
