(Games Radar) – WarnerMedia is reportedly considering releasing Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max just a week or two after its theatrical premiere, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced studios worldwide to delay movie release dates and take theatrical releases straight to streaming, but Wonder Woman 1984 remains the only true-blue blockbuster flick still slated to release in cinemas in 2020. But as coronavirus cases surge and Wonder Woman 1984’s Christmas release date nears ever closer, discussions are underway at WarnerMedia about whether to delay the movie until 2021 or opt for a quick-to-home streaming release.

While it might seem like a devastating blow to cinemas moving Wonder Woman 1984 to streaming, some theatre owners are reportedly open to the idea, as they see it as preferable to WarnerMedia delaying the movie’s release altogether.
