After the smash success of the solo hit film “Wonder Woman,” fans have been eager to see Gal Gadot wear eagle draped armor one more time. While the general public may have to wait a little longer to see the demi-god dawn her armor, the first bit of footage for Wonder Woman 1984 was screened during Warner Bros.’ panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con The description of which you can check out below:
Wonder Woman lands in the mall in full costume, with a little girl saying oh my gosh as Wonder Woman tosses her into a plush bear while apprehending two gunmen and crushing their guns. She hips her lasso around them runs the other direction and less off the platform to the level below. Then she runs down the street in full dash mode in full costume. Clip ends.”
The film, as the title suggests, will be set in the United States’ bustling 80’s world. With little to go on, fans are speculating many plot points to the upcoming epic. How is Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) alive? Is Cheetah (Kirsten Wiig) the movie’s main villain or will we again be faked out as we were in the original film? Who is Pedro Pascal playing and is he the new love interest for the Amazon?
Director Patty Jenkins had some choice words concerning the films new take on Diana’s world.
“I brought in all of my [department heads] every week,” Jenkins said in an interview earlier this year. “I would sit and hammer home… we have to be so careful that we don’t veer from one movie to another movie, first of all, and, second, that anywhere that she walks out in a Wonder Woman suit, it just doesn’t look ridiculous.”
The film is expected to up the ante from what we got in the last installment of the Amazon’s adventure.
“She is now at her full powers. We’re raising the bar.” Jenkins said at Warner Bros.’ CinemaCon panel.
“Other than the wonderful work Lynda Carter did in the TV show, this character was never really told on the big screen.” Gadot echoed during an interview last year. “We just see her origin story. But there’s so much to explore with this character who has 75 years of legacy, there’s so much material and so many ways, and I’m psyched about it.”
Can’t wait to see the footage for yourself? Whom would you love to see a cameo in her film?
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to premiere November 1, 2019.
