Wonder Woman 1984 is set to be released on June 5 and now Total Film has released a new image of the upcoming comic book movie. The image from the latest issue of the magazine show’s Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) stoping a couple of goons at the Mall. Additionally, Patty Jenkins also revealed that WW84 was a much harder movie to shoot than the first Wonder Woman movie.
The ’80s-set sequel was a much harder movie to shoot… I was more ambitious with it. So doing all the stunts for real on wires and things, it’s extremely complicated and time-consuming. And everybody involved knows that you could say, ‘Oh, forget it, we’ll just do it in CG.’ So it was difficult in a new way [compared to the first film].
“We weren’t trying to make a mimicry [of the ’80s],” says Jenkins. “We were trying to make a movie as if it was a grounded movie in the ’80s.”
Wonder Woman 2 will take place in the 80s 1980s during the Cold War between the US and the then-Soviet Union, and will see Diana Prince/Wonder Woman faces two new villains, Kristen Wiig’s Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal’s Max Lord while dealing with the mysterious return of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor.
Wonder Woman 1984 is the ninth installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins. Jenkins wrote the film with Geoff Johns and David Callaham. Gal Gadot made her debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), before making her full debut in Wonder Woman (2017) and Justice League (2017). The first Wonder Woman film was the highest-grossing movie of summer 2017 earning $412.5 million in the US and $821.8 million worldwide. The film was previously set for December 13, 2019, and then moved to November 1, 2019, before settling on June 5, 2020 release date.
WW84 stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah, Pedro Pascal, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, and Gabriella Wilde. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins. Jenkins also co-wrote the script with Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham.
