Before Diana Prince swoops in to save Christmas later this month with the release of WONDER WOMAN 1984, IGN has debuted four new character posters for the upcoming film. Each print features one of the film’s four main characters set against gorgeous, psychedelic backgrounds. Those who lived through the 80s or have experienced enough of the era through osmosis are bound to dig the swirling, neon colors featured in each poster as well as the funky fresh fashions that are on display.
IGN tweeted out the posters on Tuesday, adding something wonderful to everyone’s not-quite-mid-week mood.

WONDER WOMAN 1984 is still slated to hit theaters on December 25, 2020, but it will also launch on HBO Max in the United States on the same day! The film will be available at no extra cost to subscribers but will only stream for the first month of the film’s release. Patty Jenkins confirmed the news on Twitter, saying “Watch it in theaters, where it is made safe to do so (check out the great work theaters have done to make it so!) And available safety in your home on HBO Max where it is not. Happy holidays to all of you. We hope you enjoy our film as much as we did making it.”
In a press-release, WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar said that many things factored into this choice, including the pandemic (naturally), as well as “Our belief in the theatrical experience and, to that end, the importance of exhibitors; Our mission to be strong and supportive partners to Patty, Gal, producer Chuck Roven, and the entire Wonder Woman 1984 team; And finally, the fans, which is where important decisions like this should always start and should always end.” Kilar added:
We believe this decision will bring several benefits. The first and most important benefit is to the fans in the form of unprecedented choice from day one. The second benefit is to the exhibitors, providing an eagerly anticipated movie at a much-needed time while they take precautions in their operations. Finally, we believe that our creative partners and ourselves will benefit from this decision, in the form of fan response both theatrically and via HBO Max in the U.S.
