Wonder Woman proved to be a blockbuster, leaving fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of its sequel, Wonder Woman 1984. The exceptional direction by Patty Jenkins and the outstanding performance of Gal Gadot contributed to its immense success.
Following the huge success of Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe has fans eagerly anticipating the sequel. Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the iconic superhero and Patty Jenkins’ direction were both highly praised. Originally set to release in November 2019, the film has been pushed back to the summer of 2020, a change that Gadot has given the thumbs up to. Wonder Woman 1984 promises to be just as thrilling as its predecessor, with one major twist we already know about: Steve Trevor, who was believed to be dead, makes a surprising return.
Surprisingly, Steve Trevor has managed to cheat death and will make a comeback in the upcoming movie Wonder Woman 1984, as shown in the promotional images. Fans are puzzled about how Chris Pine’s character looks as young as he did back in World War I. Fortunately, director Patty Jenkins has assured fans that there is a reasonable explanation behind Steve’s return, which will be revealed in the film. The film is set during the Cold War, so it is unclear how Steve’s return fits into the storyline, but it is sure to thrill fans who have been eagerly anticipating his resurrection on the big screen.
Captain America: The First Avenger and Wonder Woman both offer a unique take on superhero movies, with the former taking place during World War II and the latter exploring various wars. While the first Wonder Woman movie was set in World War I, the sequel titled Wonder Woman 1984 promises to delve into the Cold War era. The movie’s title not only denotes the year it is set in but also pays tribute to George Orwell’s novel about a future dystopia under totalitarian rule, which was a looming threat during the Cold War era. However, what sets Wonder Woman apart from Captain America is the special bond shared between Diana and Steve.
Chris Pine has revealed that the relationship between his character, Steve Trevor, and Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel will have a different dynamic than in the first movie. Pine stated that this time around, his character will be more of a deer caught in headlights, unlike in the previous film where Steve was already fighting in the Great War before Diana joined him. The change in tone could be due to the fact that the sequel is set in the 1980s, with Steve feeling out of place while Diana thrives in her element. The new film’s script was co-written by director Patty Jenkins.
Patty Jenkins, a female director in the film industry, was behind the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman in 2017. However, the writing credits for the movie were surprisingly all given to men. Allan Heinberg wrote the screenplay based on a story developed by Heinberg, Zack Snyder, and Jason Fuchs. For the sequel, Jenkins was determined to be part of the writing team. She collaborated with Geoff Johns, who was the CCO of DC Entertainment at the time, to develop an outline. Together with writer David Callaham, they worked on scripting the sequel. This time around, Jenkins has taken a proactive role in the entire filmmaking process. Fans can anticipate the appearance of Cheetah as the antagonist in the upcoming movie.
The highly anticipated film, Wonder Woman 1984, has recently revealed that Kristen Wiig, known for her comedic performance in Bridesmaids, will be portraying the antagonist Cheetah. Cheetah is a character from the comics who starts out as a British archeologist named Barbara Ann Minerva and later becomes bound with the Cheetah goddess after discovering an ancient ritual in Urzkartaga. This sets up a confrontation with Wonder Woman. Despite Wiig’s background in comedy, director Patty Jenkins is confident that Wiig has what it takes to effectively play the role of a supervillain. Additionally, the film’s release date has been rescheduled to avoid competition with other films.
In order to boost its chances at the box office, Warner Bros. has decided to postpone the release of Wonder Woman 1984 from November 2019 to June 2020 due to the highly competitive nature of the film industry. The original November release date would have seen the movie going up against several other big films such as Terminator: Dark Fate, Charlie’s Angels, Kingsman: The Great Game, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Frozen 2. This change in release date means that the sequel will now only contend with Top Gun: Maverick and an untitled Judd Apatow comedy starring Pete Davidson. The new release date has better prospects for the film’s success and it is still expected to be a box office hit. It is worth noting that Wonder Woman 1984 is the second installment in a three-part series.
Patty Jenkins, the genius behind the massively successful Wonder Woman franchise, has spilled the beans on her plans for the third installment. Much like Christopher Nolan, she has mapped out the character’s trajectory over the course of three movies. The second film is pivotal in bridging the gap between the first and third, highlighting Diana Prince’s evolution from start to finish. Although Jenkins may not direct the ultimate picture, she has a clear vision for how the tale should culminate. And as if that weren’t enough, Pedro Pascal’s involvement in an exciting, undisclosed role has only added to the excitement.
The talented actor Pedro Pascal, who has captured the hearts of many with his performances in Game of Thrones and Narcos, is all set to join the cast of Wonder Woman 1984. Although the details about his role are still under wraps, this development has thrilled both fans of Pascal and DC Universe enthusiasts. Interestingly, Pascal had previously played a part in a pilot based on the Wonder Woman comics, which unfortunately was not picked up by NBC in 2011. But now, he gets another shot at being part of Wonder Woman’s epic journey on the big screen. Meanwhile, director Patty Jenkins has teased that she has a favorite scene in mind for the upcoming movie. We can’t wait to see what it is! Besides, Pascal will also be playing the lead role in the new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, which will be streaming on Disney+.
Patty Jenkins recently teased Wonder Woman 1984’s upcoming scene, which promises to be just as thrilling as the iconic No Man’s Land sequence from the first film. While it won’t be an exact replica, Jenkins is confident that fans will be blown away by its intensity. The No Man’s Land scene from the previous movie was a remarkable achievement, displaying incredible visuals and masterful editing as Wonder Woman emerged victorious against a group of soldiers. To add to the excitement, Robin Wright will reprise her role as Antiope.
According to sources, Robin Wright is set to appear in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel in a flashback scene. Although details about the scene are still unknown, fans of the House of Cards actress are thrilled about her return. Wright expressed her excitement at being a part of the film, stating that she believes Wonder Woman embodies justice, equality, and truth. The flashback will also feature Connie Nielsen, who portrays Hippolyta, Diana’s mother and Themyscira’s queen.
Meanwhile, Tiffany Haddish had planned to spend some time socializing with Shakira after the MTV Video Music Awards 2023 but things didn’t go as expected. During a sudden move, Haddish appeared in one of Shakira’s selfie photos holding the two VMAs she had won, followed by photobombing Shakira and shouting her name as she moved through the party. Despite eventually posing with Haddish on the backstage red carpet area, Shakira did not turn in Haddish’s direction while the comedian continued to follow her through the room while yelling her name. Haddish also played the same prank on Karol G while she was posing with Shakira. Shakira won two awards during the event, including Best Collaboration with Karol G for TQG and the Video Vanguard Award. Haddish presented the Best Afrobeats award, which Rema and Selena Gomez won for Calm Down. Lastly, Haddish recently made headlines for buying a wedding dress, which she plans to dye a purplish-blue color, although she has no immediate plans to get married.
