Diana’s back! After smashing records with her first critically-acclaimed solo outing and becoming the standout star of both Justice League and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman is returning to screens.
Once again directed by Patty Jenkins, the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman will see the Amazonian superhero battle a new enemy 70 years after the events of her first standalone film.
Who exactly is the new villain? And which characters from the first film will make the huge time jump to its sequel?
Find out everything you need to know about Wonder Woman 1984 below.
What is Wonder Woman 1984 about? What will happen?
Set in – you’re not going to believe this – 1984, the film will see Diana Prince come against villain Cheetah, a British anthropologist who is gifted a few superpowers from a cheetah god. In the comics, these abilities include enhanced strength, speed and agility, plus night vision and heightened reflexes. Just think of Catwoman (and prey Cheetah won’t be anything like Halle Berry’s feline-themed hero).
That’s right, Steve Trevor – the First World War pilot who was at least 30 years old in 1917 – will appear in Wonder Woman 1984. And not in a flashback, either. A photo of Patty Jenkins showed Trevor in a 1980s setting…
Game of Thrones and Narcos star Pedro Pascal has also been cast in an undisclosed role. Could this perhaps be Ed Indelicato, Diana’s ally in the police department, the character Pascal played in the failed 2011 Wonder Woman TV pilot?
Other confirmed cast members include Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright as Diana’s mother and aunt respectively (reprising their roles from the first film, presumably in flashback), with Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Kristoffer Polaha, and child actress Oakley Bull cast in as-yet-unknown roles.
There’s also a chance original Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter may appear in the film sequel, with the actor previously saying she was in talks with Jenkins.
Is there a trailer for Wonder Woman 1984?
Sadly not, though Gadot did reveal some behind-the-scenes pictures when the film wrapped in December 2018.
