When she was asked about the Wonder Woman 1984 release going theatrical day-and-date on HBO Max, she said: “It was the best choice in a bunch of bad choices at the moment,” adding that it was a “heartbreaking experience.”
“It was detrimental to the movie. I knew that could have happened,” she continued.
“I don’t think it plays the same on streaming, ever…I’m not a fan of day-and-date and I hope to avoid it forever,” she said, referring to the hybrid release on HBO Max and in theaters.
“I make movies for the big-screen experience,” she said, adding that she would not make a Netflix movie.
“I like working with Netflix for television, I wouldn’t make a movie there or any streaming service with those terms. It’s hard to market a movie when it has a limited run.”
She also criticized the quality of the movie theater experience in recent years, saying auditoriums play at “80% of their volume,” and the “diversity of content” has dropped.
Nonetheless, Wonder Woman fans should be excited: a third Wonder Woman movie is officially on the way!
