With the recent release of Wonder Woman: 1984 its reception among audiences and critics has been mostly positive. Although despite its debut on HBO MAX, it has done fairly well critically and financially. Wonder Woman: 1984 is among the first big-budget films to test against streaming and theatrical releases and it has delivered on both. According to CNBC.com; “The first movie in its experiment to release its films simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. The result? “Wonder Woman 1984″ set a pandemic theatrical release record with $16.7 million in box office sales in the U.S. and Canada.” They also mentioned that the streaming Numbers are a bit “fuzzy” at the moment.
In relation to the success of the film, it has been confirmed that the next Wonder Woman film will happen. Variety.com says; “As fans around the world continue to embrace Diana Prince, driving the strong opening weekend performance of ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ we are excited to be able to continue her story with our real-life Wonder Women — Gal and Patty — who will return to conclude the long-planned theatrical trilogy,” said Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich.”
This would be among the few D.C. films to get its third outing, with Batman leading that slate of films. This could also help the D.C.E.U. keep up with Disney and their Marvel properties. There’s hardly any news about the third installment but it’s great to know it’s coming. It’s also great to know that it’ll be a full theatrical release, making the money that deserves to be made.
