The Gal Gadot-led DC movie originally released on Christmas Eve, December 24 in theatres in India. Six weeks later on February 5, Wonder Woman 1984 arrived on video-on-demand platforms such as Apple TV, BookMyShow Stream, Google Play, Hungama Play, and Tata Sky. Then approximately a month later on March 9, the DC epic was released on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. It’s taken another nine weeks or so for Warner Bros. India to move the Wonder Woman sequel onto streaming with Prime Video, that in turn completes the film’s release cycle.
In total, that’s about four months and three weeks since Wonder Woman 1984 first released in India. That’s a little longer than Tenet which took less than four months to go from cinemas to streaming. But still, it’s a much shorter cycle than usual — due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Before COVID-19, Warner Bros. India would usually wait around six months — case in point, Joker — before sending them to streaming. Warner has a two-fold licensing system in India. Its movies are first available on Prime Video for a year before they move over to Netflix. That means Wonder Woman 1984 will likely release May 15, 2022 on Netflix in India.
In addition to Gadot as Diana Prince/ Wonder Woman in the lead, Wonder Woman 1984 also stars Chris Pine as Diana’s love interest Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as geologist and gemologist Barbara Minerva/ Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as struggling charismatic businessman Maxwell Lord, Robin Wright as Diana’s aunt and Amazon army general Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Diana’s mother and Amazon queen Hippolyta. Patty Jenkins is back in the director’s seat on Wonder Woman 1984. Jenkins also co-wrote the DC movie with Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham. Gadot and Jenkins are also producers alongside Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, and Stephen Jones.
Wonder Woman 1984 is out May 15 on Prime Video in India. In the US, Wonder Woman 1984 returns to HBO Max — it had a simultaneous release in US cinemas and on streaming, but only for first 31 days — on May 13.
