Wonder Woman 1984 was one of the biggest Christmas Day 2020 releases alongside Pixar’s soul and Promising young woman.
On Sunday afternoon, Warner Bros. announced that they had officially accelerated Wonder Woman 3 after the stellar 1984 Wonder Woman box office and HBO Max performance.

According to the studio, Wonder Woman rose past theatrical projections in 1984 and grossed $ 16.7 million at the box office on its opening weekend. The film was shown in 2,100 limited capacity theaters nationwide. Wonder Woman 1984 grossed $ 19.4 million at the international box office that weekend, bringing the total weekend of the DCEU sequel worldwide to $ 36.1 million in 42 markets (including the US and Canada). To date, the 1984 international grand total for Wonder Woman is $ 68.3 million and worldwide sales of $ 85 million – a staggering number to report in a year plagued by dismal box office revenues . Warner Bros. reports that nearly half of HBO Max retail subscribers saw Wonder Woman 1984 on December 25th, in addition to “Millions of wholesale subscribers who access HBO Max through cable, WiFi, or other partner services”. Certain numbers regarding HBO Max viewership were not disclosed at the time of reporting.

One of the most intriguing aspects of Wonder Woman 3’s green light is the story Jenkins has planned for fans eager to see what’s next for Diana Prince. Back in December 2019, Jenkins confirmed that she knew the Wonder Woman 3 story, but remained vague as to whether the film was running. It’s been a year since Wonder Woman was completed in 1984, which means there has been plenty of time to dig into a story and maybe even ponder the return of a certain Wonder Woman 1984 villain.
Another point of interest is Jenkins’ plans Star Wars: Rogue Squadron will affect their work developing Wonder Woman 3 and getting it ready for production. With no set release date for the third Wonder Woman film, there shouldn’t be much of a concern that the loner director can edit both projects. However, fans should keep an eye on them as they develop so they know what release date to put on their calendars.
Wonder Woman 1984 is now available to stream on HBO Max through January 24, 2021. We will keep you updated on Wonder Woman 3 as this project develops. In the meantime, check out all of the new Warner Bros. movies coming out on HBO Max in 2021.
