It seems as though those who were looking forward to watching "Wonder Woman 1984" in a theater following its June 5 release may face some disappointment.

According to The Wrap, Warner Bros. has been discussing whether or not the DC Comics film, which stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, should be released on streaming platforms due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This, in turn, would result in the superhero film bypassing "theaters altogether."

As revealed by sources, Warner Pictures Group Chairman Toby Emmerich and his team of advisors have reportedly been privately discussing the matter as they look to the future. It has also been said that the conversations have been kept so quiet that not even director Patty Jenkins or producer Charles Roven have been involved.

Those at the top would prefer a theatrical release for the "Wonder Woman" follow-up, but with movie theaters closed for the foreseeable future, they are entertaining the idea of releasing it another way, according to the report. Furthermore, the publication stated that it appears those in power are considering "a direct-to-consumer offering" rather than releasing the film on Warner's soon-to-launch subscription service, HBO Max.

Jenkins and Roven, meanwhile, are said to prefer the film release in theaters in August. Speaking on the idea of a streaming-only release, Roven called the proposal "ludicrous" due to the size of the superhero film. 

This is not the first hurdle that the sequel to 2017's "Wonder Woman" has faced over the course of the past year. Previously, rumored reshoots sparked concern among some fans.
