‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Impacted by Pandemic

“Wonder Woman 1984,” which stars Gal Gadot, who plays Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), and actor Chris Pine, who plays Steve Trevor, will likely only be able to be viewed on HBO Max in San Diego County.

“Wonder Woman 1984” was supposed to be released on November 2019, and it was delayed to June 2020 due to production issues. The COVID-19 pandemic then pushed it back to August, then October, and to Christmas Day.

It will be released in theaters worldwide or on the streaming service HBO Max. A lot of countries have closed down theaters for awhile, so it is unsure if people will be able to see the film there.

In California, they have a strict policy on reopening indoor based events. The Desert Sun wrote, “That means indoor dining, gyms and movie theaters, among other businesses, must either remain closed or shut down in 41 of the state’s 58 counties.”

San Diego County is now under a stay-at-home order, as of Dec. 6, and is one of the 41 counties that is shutting down indoor based events.

This Christmas Day, if you are planning to see “Wonder Woman 1984” in a San Diego County theater, you might have to wait.

HBO Max launched on May 27, 2020, and now has 38 million HBO and HBO Max customers. It is ranked 14th in most viewed streaming service, according to the web.

“Wonder Woman 1984” has not been given a Rotten Tomatoes rating yet. It will leave viewership questionable leading up to the film being released.

The first Wonder Woman movie, released back in 2017, made $821.8 million in the box office. Anybody that loved the first Wonder Woman movie is going to be excited for when this film comes out.

“Wonder Woman 1984,” with the impacts of COVID-19, might not get to that box office number the first film held.
