In 2017, she burst onto screens with glorious class and world-changing impact – in 2020 she's coming back. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is going back in time again in Wonder Woman 1984, as director Patty Jenkins turns to the Cold War to dig deeper into the Amazonian heroine's backstory.
In the previous film, Diana Prince's lover Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) was killed, but the first whispers on the sequel promise some kind of closure for the couple – plus, Chris Pine is looking, well, very alive in the trailer. Plot details remain vague, but the film will see Diana take on a new conflict within the Soviet Union, and find a new enemy.
This enemy is Cheetah, aka Barbara Ann Minerva, here played by Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids). Also starring in Wonder Woman 1984 are Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright who will be reprising her role as the general of the Amazonian army, Antiope.
Since the premiere of the first Wonder Woman film, the landscape has widened for female representation in the world of superheroes. We've had Captain Marvel, and 2020 also promises a standalone Harley Quinn film, Birds of Prey, as well as a Marvel prequel led by Scarlett Johansson in the shape of Black Widow.
Stay tuned for further news on Wonder Woman 1984. Bookmark 5 June 2020 now to catch it as soon as it hits the silver screen – and enjoy the first glowing trailer now.
