Warner Bros have announced that the long-awaited release of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 (or WW84 for short) will finally take place in December 2020.
In what is great news for those of us who like to enjoy new movies at home, they also announced that, at the same time as the movie theater release, it will also be available to watch on the US streaming service, HBO Max. But of course, only if you’re based in the United States, right?
If you’re outside of the US, you’ll either have to brave a trip to a local movie theater or wait for one of the rumored streaming deals to come around for your local market, likely well after the initial release.
As you’d expect from us at StreamLocator given this is what we do – you will be able to watch Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max, wherever in the world you are, and this is how.
