OIn an interview on Monday, Wonder Woman 1984 `s director Patty Jenkins reflected on the challenges that delayed the movie`s release.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the film`s release date bumped back a couple of times. Patty revealed that originally the movie was dated for release late last year.

“I never wanted it to come out in the winter. I was fighting the studio because we were supposed to come out summer of 2020, and then they didn’t have a big movie for 2019,” Patty said.

“I was in the middle of making a limited series, and all of a sudden they announced that they had moved up the release date by seven months, which was going to give me way less time to make the movie than I had for Wonder Woman. I was saying, ‘You guys, why would you guarantee I can’t make as good of a film by making it too quick?’”

“So we argued about that all year, and I had to drop out of doing a whole limited series and only do the first two episodes, and just race to write an 80-page treatment at the same time as I’m trying to direct the show,” she added. “We finally got lucky that it got moved back. It would have been a much worse movie if it had come out then.”

The filmmaker went on to reflect on when she was conducted by the studio informing her the movie would get a release on HBO Max.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first of Warner Bros.’  big blockbusters to bow on HBO Max. In an interview on Thursday, the film`s director said she will only continue with the franchise if the studio commits once more to a theatrical model.
