Lasso up, it's time to watch Wonder Woman 1984 online with HBO Max. The superhero sequel started streaming today for subscribers and play in theaters where they are open in the U.S..

Wonder Woman 1984 is set during the Cold War. Diana Prince hasn't aged a day since her superheroics in World War I, but society has changed a lot. A new conflict arises in the form of two new villains, media businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and friend-turned-enemy Barbara Ann Minerva aka Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Diana gets a surprising assist from her love interest Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who presumably perished in the first movie.
Wonder Woman 1984 has taken a long and winding road to HBO Max, the fledgling streaming service launched by WarnerMedia. The COVID-19 pandemic forced Warner Bros. to push back its release date multiple times. Then, in mid-November, the studio announced it would send the film to stream on its corporate sibling, at the same time as it opened in any available U.S. theaters. The move was extremely surprising to Hollywood, but paved the way for Warner Bros.' decision to release its entire 2021 slate on HBO Max.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Wonder Woman 1984 online.

While official reviews of Wonder Woman 1984 aren't available yet, the initial social media reactions to early press screeners have been almost universally positive. Here's a sampling:
Huge news: Wonder Woman 1984 is fantastic! The story is excellent & has a great, timely message; it packs in a ton of surprises; and amazing work is done with both Cheetah & Max Lord (Wiig & Pascal are both stellar). Get hyped, because it's the real deal. #WonderWoman1984 #WW1984 pic.twitter.com/9UQLyxn3gxDecember 5, 2020
I was lucky enough to be among the first to (finally!) get to screen Wonder Woman 1984. I adored it. The first Wonder Woman is my favorite of the modern DC films, and #WW84 makes all the smart next steps, telling a very human and very beautiful story for Diana Prince. pic.twitter.com/vzr2mZXIKgDecember 5, 2020
WONDER WOMAN 1984 is — forgive the term — wonderful. It doubles down on the compassion and cheese that made the first so great, as well as its tenacious belief in the best of humanity. A magical, sorely needed beacon of hope in this yearDecember 5, 2020
Honored to have been among the first press to see #WonderWoman1984! I enjoyed the first film, but I loved #WW1984 even more. Although I wish we'd gotten the change to see it earlier, the movie came out at possibly the perfect time for its hope, optimism and message. pic.twitter.com/k2yY32UHrTDecember 5, 2020
I’m so happy to report that #WW84 is an absolute blast from start to finish. An exceptional compliment to the first film, it’s stuffed w/ heart, hope, love, action, romance & humor. @PattyJenks, @GalGadot & team delivered one of DC's best sequels. I was in tears when it ended. pic.twitter.com/ivPkBFmehdDecember 5, 2020
