What time is Wonder Woman 1984 released on HBO Max? How and when to watch online

One of the biggest cinematic releases this holiday season seas Gal Gadot reprise her titular role in the hotly-anticipated Wonder Woman 1984. The film is the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman and provides the ninth feature film set in the DC Extended Universe.

Gadot stars alongside Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal in the Cold War superhero thriller, set in 1984. This release has been in the offing for some time now after production wrapped in December 2018, but pandemic disruption has caused a sizeable delay.

Speaking about her experience in the role, Gadot said recently: "The first movie, when I was told I'm going to shoot my own Wonder Woman, I was like, ‘Oh, my God, they're going to find out I’m not a real actress and I can’t do it. They're going to call my bluff. And then Patty [Jenkins, the director] and I did it. We did it together.”

When will Wonder Woman 1984 be released?

After the chaos of 2020 it is no surprise that the release for Wonder Woman 1984 has been pushed back by over a year from the originally scheduled date. After those delays WW84 will finally be released in the United States and Canada on Christmas Day 2020.

It will be available to watch in selected IMAX and Dolby Cinemas from the 25 December, with streaming on HBO Max available the same day. Film lovers lining up Wonder Woman 1984 for Christmas Day viewing will be able to stream from 9am Pacific Time or 12pm Eastern Time on 25 December.

Despite the disappointment of months of delays, Gadot told USA Today that she is delighted at the thought of becoming Christmas Day viewing for families around the world:

The thought of having families watching this movie on Christmas Day just warmed my heart. And it's come to a place where I don't know when the theatres are going to be back.”
