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.

When is Wonder Woman 1984 released in cinemas?

Wonder Woman 1984 is currently set for a June 5th, 2020 release date. Previously it was scheduled for release in November 2019, but the movie was shifted to the summer, as star Gad Gadot tweeted.

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).

She's back… 🙅🏻‍♀️ #WW84

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…

Just how could Steve be alive and not aged well into his 90s? Fans have theorised he’ll appear as some sort of hallucination, or that some divine intervention has prevented his death.

Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters actor Kristen Wiig will play Barbara Minerva AKA the villainous Cheetah. Patty Jenkins also released a sneak peek pic of Wiig in character on Twitter…

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.

We did it. Again!! And as much as the first time shooting Wonder Woman was amazing, this time was even more unique and special.. We shot in 4 very different locations in 3 countries, and I'm so soooo proud of the almost 1000 crew members who came to set every day, giving everything they have into our movie. Couldn't ask for better partners on this.. I'm so lucky to have the one and only Patty Jenkins, as my director. She always has our backs, she gives us the wings to dare, and everyday she helped us find the most creative version of ourselves .. I am so grateful to call her my friend. And to our AMAZINGly talented cast who made every day enjoyable and fun, thank you! Honestly.. Words cannot describe this experience.. This journey was so demanding and challenging but we all came and did our very best every take, every day, putting our all out there and I’m so proud… Thank you universe for this opportunity. I love this character. And thank you to all of you for being the best fans in the world. It was you that made me push myself every day. I'm so happy and excited, can't wait to share it with you in 2020! ❤️ Gal
