Theaters Darken After Last Delay of “Wonder Woman 1984”
The pandemic has wreaked so much havoc on the film industry that theaters may not survive. Theater chains across the United States desperately wanted people to take their places. Those who reopened hoped that titles like Wonder Woman 1984, James Bond: no time to die, and Black Widow would encourage people to return to the theater at the end of 2020.
But at the end of last month, Marvel announced that it was pushing back Black Widow again. This time until 2021. Warner Bros. Wonder Woman 1984 until Christmas. And, James Bond: no time to die was postponed again until next year.
According to Cinema Blend, after the change in these premiere dates, Cineworld announced the closure of all of its 543 Regal movie sites in the United States. Regal Cinemas is the second largest national cinema chain in the United States. This is only a temporary measure, but it is not known how long they will remain closed.

This will be the first time the character will wear the armor on screen. However, Wonder Woman has worn it in the comics since 1996. The sequel will take place several decades after the events of the first film. Fans will see the character in the 1980s as she battles villains Maxwell Lord and Cheetah.
Chris Pine will return as Steve Trevor, despite his character passing away in 2017 Wonder Woman. Kristin Wiig will also make her DCEU debut as Barbara Ann Minerva (aka Cheetah).
“Wonder Woman 1984” would go straight to streaming

Sources now claim that the reason they did not include Wonder Woman 1984 in their ad is that it goes straight to streaming. Giant Freakin Robot claims that Warner Bros. considered all of his options. They decided at this point that there was nothing left to do but drop the direct-to-demand suite in December.
GFR clarified that this information comes from a single source and has not been corroborated. However, the source has been reliable in the past. Whereas Disney has succeeded with their Mulan release on Disney +, Warner Bros. could most likely take the same path with Wonder Woman 1984. Fans should definitely stay tuned for updates.
