Earlier this week, The New York Times reported that Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot each received around $ 10 million each to support Warner Bros’ decision to release “ Wonder Woman 1984 ” on HBO Max.
However, the portal revealed that the studio is not favoring any other actor or filmmaker after its decision to release all 2021 movies on the streaming service.
Not even Margot Robbie (“The Suicide Squad”), Keanu Reeves (“Matrix 4”) and Will Smith (“King Richard”) have been approached to discuss a financial deal due to their upcoming films.
As the simultaneous theatrical release and HBO Max will hurt the titles’ box office, several artists and directors have been extremely upset by Warner Bros.
Even Deadline reported that Legendary Entertainment is challenging the decision to release “ Godzilla vs. Kong ‘on the platform, and’ has already sent or will send letters to Warner Bros. As soon as possible.”
For those who don’t know, legendary executives discovered this release policy just 30 minutes before Warner Bros.’s public statement.
As revealed earlier this month, Legendary has reportedly placed Netflix as one of the potential partners to purchase “ Godzilla vs. Kong ‘for $ 250 million, but Warner blocked the decision.
As for the artists mentioned in the NYT article, the studio may be able to contact them until next year, but that all depends on negotiations with their respective agencies.
In the meantime, it’s worth remembering that HBO Max’s next big debut will be “ Wonder Woman 1984, ” which will hit the catalog with its U.S. theatrical debut on December 25.
In Brazil, the suite opens on December 17.
Check out the trailer, as well as the new individual posters:

Will Wonder Woman be able to stop the world from collapsing on her own?
