New 'Wonder Woman 1984' Posters Released
As Wonder Woman 1984's Christmas Day release approaches, Warner Bros. is going all-out with several new posters and a new CCXP TV spot.
Wonder Woman 1984 is releasing simultaneously in theaters and HBO Max on December 25th, and this week Warner Bros. is using #WeekofWonder to promote the film with new posters and behind-the-scenes looks.
Over the last few days, several new theatrical posters have been released, including the IMAX exclusive variant and the awesome one used as this article's cover photo.
Yesterday, four new character posters were released for Diana Prince, Steve Trevor, Barbara Ann Minerva, and Maxwell Lord. I like these posters much more than the ones released at last year's CCXP, although they are a bit over-edited, especially Steve Trevor's and Maxwell Lord's.
Finally, at CCXP on Sunday, a new 60-second TV spot was released. The new spot has a more somber, wistful tone when compared to the two trailers, and sadly doesn't feature many new shots. I was really expecting a third trailer, and the Warner Bros. panel on Sunday was a huge disappointment considering its six-hour length.
It's nice to see the marketing for WW84 ramp up as we get closer to the release date, but none of this feels like the norm for when a new superhero blockbuster releases. The marketing has been strangely devoid of energy even since the HBO Max release announcement, a notion which the new TV spot only furthers. I don't think that releasing a second trailer at DC FanDome was a smart idea when the pandemic makes movie release dates so unpredictable, and the fact that we never got a third trailer only makes the FanDome release more disappointing. I wish we were getting more TV spots and a third trailer. I don't want anything spoiled, but the movie is 2 hours and 31 minutes long and we've seen less than five minutes of footage from it. I think Warner Bros. could have showed more footage and cut a third trailer that mostly reused older footage, especially considering that four trailers were released for the first Wonder Woman. That being said, I am extremely excited to see Wonder Woman 1984 at home on Christmas, but I'm sad I can't see it in a theater and kind of wish the film had been delayed to June 2021. Then again, all of Warner Bros.' 2021 movies have been sent to HBO Max as well as theaters, so at least it's not a situation unique to WW84.
