Every year SDCC brings a plethora of news about upcoming movies, this year is not different. A lot of talk has centered around DC’s Hall H panel, including the brief footage of Wonder Woman 1984 the was shown. Both Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins attended and had some input to give on the hotly anticipated movie. Screenrant reported:


Screen Rant attended the Hall H panel, where Gadot described Wonder Woman 1984 as its own story, telling the audience it was not a sequel. To elaborate, director Jenkins added that her goal was to make a unique movie. Based on the short glimpse of footage, Wonder Woman 1984 definitely has a brighter aesthetic when compared to its predecessor.

Admittedly, the wording of this is slightly confusing. In some ways, Wonder Woman 1984 is a sequel since its narrative is set after the events of the 2017 film. It sounds like Gadot is indicating 1984 will not be a continuation of the previous movie. That story, which took place in World War I, had its own beginning, middle, and end, meaning it’s over. With that in mind, Jenkins and her team are likely embracing the Indiana Jones or James Bond style of franchise building, where each installment in the series operates as a “standalone” movie that exists on it own merits. How this relates to Pine’s return as Steve Trevor remains to be seen, as that’s a question that likely won’t be answered until the movie premieres in theaters.
The movie is still in the early stages of filming, but stay tuned to DCcomicsnews for more info as we get it!
