Wonder Woman 1984 is another film affected by COVID-19.
When Wonder Woman released in 2017, it was a massive hit among the audience. The fans loved it so much that the filmmakers couldn’t help but produce another, equally-awesome part. The trailer of the movie promised its viewers a journey of their lifetime. Better graphics clubbed with the superb acting talents of the casts had them hopeful for another incredible superhero movie. Patty Jenkins really outdid herself, as was evident from the various awards that the movie received.
The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer was released before the restrictions over COVID-19 concerns were established. As we all know, the current Coronavirus situation that has overtaken the world has seen theatres being shut across every platform. This has to take place in order to curb the spread of the disease.
In a tweet, Patty Jenkins wrote, “We made Wonder Woman 1984 for the big screen and I believe in the power of cinema. In these terrible times, when theatre owners are struggling as so many are, we are excited to re-date our film to August 14th, 2020 in a theatre near you, and pray for better times for all by then.”

While we wait for time to pass and the movie to eventually release in theatres near us, let’s have a look at the trailer and see what we understand of what to expect from the movie this August.
What we do understand from the trailer is that the movie will essentially evolve around the classic 80’s time. The director deeply feels for this era and time is considered to be an important factor. Jenkins had explained back at the San Diego Comic Con 2018 that the eighties was a decade when mankind was at its best and at its worst as well. This background, according to the director, was the perfect situation in which Wonder Woman would thrive against evil.
Is Steve Trevor alive?
In the first film, we saw Steve Trevor’s chemistry with the Wonder Woman glow. However, towards the end of the movie, he sacrificed his life to save mankind. So how is it possible that Trevor is still alive? According to a report published by Vulture, Jenkins does not consider Wonder Woman 1984 as a sequel. In a quote, the report stated that the director “was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel.” Along with Trevor who is returning from the dead, Robin Wright will also be returning from the dead as Antiope and Hippolyta. However, they are only returning in the form of a flashback scene.
