After various rumors and teases, Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that for her much anticipated sequel Wonder Woman is headed for that colorful era known as the 1980s. Director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot shared images across social media that confirm that the title of the film will indeed be Wonder Woman 1984, giving us the year that the film will be taking place in, far from the trenches of World War I where we last saw the heroine defeat evil.
Kristin Wiig will take on the villainous form of the Cheetah in the film as announced previously, facing off against Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
Also as rumored, Chris Pine is indeed returning for the sequel despite the fact that his character Steve Trevor met a very explosive end during the first film’s conclusion. While Jenkins caption of the image says “Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor!” it is possible that it might not even be the actual Steve.
Magic and science or the Gods themselves could have brought Steve back or it could be a descendent that looks just like him (something we’ve seen in movie and TV and comics forever) or could even be some sort of trap or hallucination.
Only time will tell.
Wonder Woman 1984 arrives on November 1, 2019.
