For Wonder Woman 1984, all changes again. The Patty Jenkins-directed DC sequel already has a new release date in December, making the Warner Bros. film about half-a-dozen delays.
Although all of this isn’t bad news! We’ll bring a splash of colour to the proceedings with some new posters here in our Wonder Woman 1984 guide, plus there’s an opportunity to pore over all the Wonder Woman trailers still available to watch.
We also have spoiler-free primers on what we can hopefully expect from both new and old faces, including a returning Steve Trevor, instead of wrangling up the cast with the Lasso of Reality. And there is a potential clarification of the runtime, a closer look at the golden suit of Diana, and some valuable quotes waiting below. Phew. Phew.
So, strap on those shoulder pads and loop the synch wave mix: what we know about Wonder Woman 1984 is this.
Wonder Women 1984: Release date!
Wonder Woman 1984 has been postponed again, with the film only scheduled to be released on December 25, 2020. Bad news, everybody. Actually, Christmas Day, that’s true.
And the release could be pushed back even further, with Gal Gadot announcing every two weeks that the premiere date is being checked. Should something alter, we’ll keep you posted.
This deadline was postponed back to June 2020, although it was originally set for release in December 2019, and then the coronavirus pandemic caused a further delay to August, then October 2, 2020, and then the new release date.
Back in 2017, the first movie starring Gadot was released and grossed over $800 million at the worldwide box office.
Wonder Women 1984: Plot!
Director Patty Jenkins shared some ideas about what she would like to do in the next film. She said, speaking to Entertainment Weekly: “The story is going to take place in the United States, which I think is right, she’s Wonder Woman.” She must be coming to America. It is about time.
The film may be set in the 1980s, with Screen Rant reporting that another “historical adventure” would be the next film, except this time during the Cold War; Diana was up against the Soviet Union powers.
“I did very much thematically want to get to love – because that’s what she stands for – and the complexity of what we’re facing,” she said of the first film. “These were big themes, like [Wonder Woman] stands for love and truth, which is particularly important right now.” Adding: “it’s got great fun from the start and great big superhero presence from the start and is funny and a great love story again, and a couple of new unbelievable characters who I’m so excited about, who are very different than were in the last movie.”
Wonder Woman 1984: Cast!
With familiar faces and more than one surprising return, the Wonder Woman 1984 cast is heaving. Gal Gadot, predictably, is back for her fourth DC rodeo as Diana / Wonder Woman.
Something is more shocking, however, is that the two deceased characters are reported to be back. As Steve Trevor, Chris Pine is back and seems to be alongside Diana in the 1980s. Despite dying from the hail of German bullets in the 2017 film, Robin Wright, who plays Antiope, is also back.
She appears to be in a flashback evaluating the swift smash cuts of Diana’s preparation as a young girl on her island and jumping into the air on what is already the present day of 1984. Connie Nielsen is now back from Diana’s native island as Queen Hippolyta. Pine told EW on Trevor’s return: “I get to be much broader-eyed and cheerful in this one. My job is really only as a friend, lover, boyfriend-cum-bodyguard, who is doing his best to support Diana in her quest. I’m like her Holmes’ Watson”
