The first lady of the DCEU is back, well… back in time, in Wonder Woman 1984. Pop culture’s beloved heroine Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) has returned to save the world, and she’s doing it in the most ‘80s way imaginable; with blaring vintage synths, pulsing neon fonts, and the gaudiest of fashion choices.
Patty Jenkins’ smash hit Wonder Woman did a lot to change the tone of the DCEU. The film was colourful, fun, and featured a heroine audiences could really root for, not some brooding dudes. Wonder Woman 1984 looks to embrace everything moviegoers loved about the original film – including Diana’s love interest Steve Trevor (Chris Pine).
Wonder Woman 1984 trailer:
It looks like Steve is back for “realz” and not a figment of Diana’s imagination. So I’m curious to see what kind of time travel trickery pulled the doomed pilot into 1984. Does it have to do with Pedro (The Mandalorian) Pascal’s nefarious villain Max Lord? Damn it, I need answers.
Sidenote: I’m most excited to see Kristen Wiig suit up as Diana’s arch-nemesis Cheetah. Hopefully, the character’s big reveal isn’t spoiled before now and the film’s June release.
Wonder Woman 1984 synopsis:
