Two New Images Welcome Wonder Woman To The ’80s
The fiasco of 2017’s Justice League—which was despised by almost everyone—isn’t limited to the film’s countless shortcomings. Its failure also had the effect of overshadowing the DC Extended Universe’s one undisputed success story: Wonder Woman. While the future of the DCEU remains confusing and uncertain (Matt Reeves is making a young Batman movie, Todd Phillips is making an extra dark Joker movie, etc.), it seems likely that the Wonder Woman you know and love (Gal Gadot) will be around for a while.
While several DCEU characters are currently waiting to find out what the future holds for them, the next Wonder Woman movie is already in production—and it’s guaranteed to be very different from the first movie. In the sequel, Wonder Woman relocates from World War I Europe to 1984 USA, a shift that’s hard to miss in the two new images that were released yesterday. In the first, we see that Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor miraculously survived his WWI injuries, even if his fashion sense died. Like the gang of fashion misfits surrounding him (including a woman who may be on her way to karate class), Pine’s wardrobe (rolled up coat sleeves, matching pants, white sneakers) is unmistakably ’80s.
In the other image (which you can see at the top of the page), Gal Gadot is parked in front of a wall of monitors featuring iconic ’80s imagery including Christie Brinkley, Dallas’ J.R. Ewing and some guy with a mohawk. There’s not much more to reveal at this point, but the appropriately titled Wonder Woman 1984 arrives in theatres on November 1, 2019. Check out the trailer for its predecessor below.
