How to watch Wonder Woman 1984 Online from anywhere
We have all the details on how you can watch Wonder Woman 1984 in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia further down in this guide. However, if you want to watch the sequel to DC’s 2017 film Wonder Woman when you’re away from home, then you’ll likely run into problems as your domestic coverage online from abroad will be geo-blocked.
That’s where one of the best VPNs (Virtual Private Network) can really come in handy. They allow you to virtually change the IP address of your laptop, tablet or mobile to one that’s back in your home country which will let you watch as if you were back there.
VPNs are incredibly easy to use and have the added benefit of providing you with an additional layer of security when surfing the web. There are also a lot of options but we recommend ExpressVPN as our top pick due to its speed, security and ease of use. The service can even be used on a wide array of operating systems and devices (e.g. iOS, Android, Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, Roku, game consoles, etc). Sign up for ExpressVPN now and enjoy a 49% discount and 3 months FREE with an annual subscription. You can even test it out for yourself thanks to the service’s 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch Wonder Woman 1984 in the U.S. on HBO Max
If you live in the US and want to watch Wonder Woman 1984, you’ll need to be an HBO Max subscriber to do so.
However, if you already pay for HBO, you may be able to get access to the streaming service for free if you currently pay for the channel through AT&T, Charter, Verizon, Cox Communications, Comcast, YouTube TV, Apple or Hulu. It is a bit confusing but essentially if HBO has struck a deal with either the cable company or digital provider that is billing you for HBO, you will be able to get access to HBO Max for free.
Signing up for HBO Max will cost you $14.99 per month but for the price, you’ll get access to HBO’s original programming including shows like Watchmen, Succession, Barry, Insecure, Westworld and more. The service will also let you watch a number of popular shows that aren’t on HBO such as Friends and even Rick and Morty.
HBO Max currently offers a 7-day free trial if you want to test out the service for yourself to watch Wonder Woman 1984.

What is HBO Max?
Available since May, HBO Max is a worthy competitor to Disney Plus, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Netflix. It’s at an immediate advantage, having a coveted library of acclaimed HBO TV shows and films at its disposal: The Sopranos, Westworld, The Wire, Succession, and Game of Thrones to name only a few.
Having access to WarnerMedia’s far-reaching library of content, as well as that of third-party providers, makes it even more enticing. It means not just 100 years’ worth of Warner Brothers movies and TV shows, but content from New Line Cinema, DC Entertainment, Turner Classic Movies, Bad Robot Productions, Crunchyroll, and many others. That line-up embraces old Hollywood films, anime and manga, contemporary blockbusters, TV series, and everything in between. It’s a hugely diverse selection.
HBO Max also provides exclusive access to all seasons of Friends (it’ll produce the much-anticipated reunion special, too), The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty, as well as being the only US service that allows you to watch Studio Ghibli movies – 21 out of 22 of their animated films, including the Oscar-winning Spirited Away.
Not only does it have access to a stunning archive of content, but HBO Max intends to create a bounty of exciting new programming for the platform too. Among the roster of current Max Originals is DC’s Doom Patrol, vogueing reality show Legendary, scripted comedy Love Life, and The Not Too Late Show with Elmo. There will be huge growth in this area too, as Warner Bros intends to produce 8-10 mid-budget films annually, as well as creating 31 original series for HBO Max in its first year.
Wonder Woman 1984 Movie Review
When “Wonder Woman” came out in 2017, it was a thrilling breath of fresh air, both within the darker realm of DC Comics adaptations and the larger context of bloated summer blockbusters.
Director Patty Jenkins’ film offered equal parts muscle and heart, with a perfect tonal balance between transporting action and gentle humour, dazzling spectacle and charming romance. Crucially at its centre was the impossibly charismatic Gal Gadot, who was more than just a gorgeous and statuesque stunner.
She radiated goodness, light, and hope in a way that was infectious, that made you believe in the power of superheroes beyond facile platitudes about doing what’s right and protecting mankind.
