After several delays, the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t that far from. If you’re anything like us, having seen Diana Prince’s spectacular dash through the bleak, hellish emptiness of No Man’s Land in World War 1, you’ll be far more desperate for more of the legendary goddess of the Justice League.
Wonder Woman gifted a generation of girls with a role model that showed that they could be a hero just like any other guy, and we’re excited to see what else the returning director, Patty Jenkins, will do with the hero. Wonder Woman 1984 seems to be taking a lighter tone, however, and we can see a bit more of it in the new trailer unveiled at the DC FanDome event in August.
Now that the cinemas are steadily re-opening, here’s the hope that the December release date will be the last. So, let’s go over the release date of the film, the trailer, and the cast-with some spoilers from the previous film-so you’re all set to go back to the flashing neon lights of the eighties.
Wonder Woman’s release date is reportedly scheduled for December 25, 2020, following a series of delays.
Wonder Woman 1984 trailer: Watch the DC FanDome footage
The second Wonder Woman 1984 trailer introduced the immersive DC FanDome event in August, giving us a closer look at the core villains of the film: Maxwell Lord and Cheetah. We see that the evil-doing couple has friendship as Barbara’s jealousy of Diana rises, as well as flashbacks featuring Antiope and Hippolyta, and some outstanding ’80s styled by Steve Taylor, somehow-back-from-the-dead.
In the first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, we get a good view of the film set in the ’80s, a significant moment for the director. Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Jenkins clarified that this decade “was the best and worst of civilization,” making this history fertile ground for Wonder Woman’s fight against darkness.
How is Steve Trevor alive in this movie?
Not only did he heroically blow himself up in a plane filled with mustard gas canisters, but in the 1984 Wonder Woman trailer, Trevor hardly appears a day older than he did in the Great War. That’s over 60 years since the sequel was set.
However, this time, Trevor is going to be a very different character. Speaking to Complete Film, Chris Pine said, “He’s happy to be back with Diana. He’s very curious about this planet. Tonally, what’s different is that he’s not bored with the world. He isn’t jaded. It’s a perfect 180 of the sound of the character of the first.
In an interview with Vulture, Roven said that Jenkins did not see 1984 as a sequel at all. He said that Jenkins “was adamant that this movie should be the next installment of Wonder Woman, but not a sequel.” Since films are not supposed to be “one continuous plot,” this could mean that the storylines of both films do not actually interact, but we also hope for answers on this front. For now, through Absolute Film, there’s a new picture featuring the couple.
