Wonder Woman broke records when it premiered in June 2017. It had the biggest opening weekend ever for a female directed film earning a whopping $223 million. So it was no surprise when it was announced that they are making a sequel, Wonder Woman 1984.
Details are still fuzzy, but that isn’t stopping the hype surrounding the much-anticipated film. Director Patty Jenkins celebrated star Gal Gadot’s birthday on April 30th by posting a photo of the upcoming film on Twitter giving us the first real look at the film.
“Happy Birthday to my most spectacular, incredible, amazing, beautiful, loving, powerful, hilarious and awe inspiring friend and partner,” she wrote. “I love you more than words can say. Happy Birthday @GalGadot #WW1984.”
So far we know where the movie will be set. Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly, “The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”
It took place in the 1980s. It will pit Diana against the Soviet Union in the Cold.
To many viewers surprise, Chris Pine is also starring in the film. Even though his character, Trevor, sacrificed himself in the first film. Kristen Wiig is set to play Wonder Woman’s nemesis, Cheetah.
Release date is June 5, 2020! We have a while to wait, regardless, we’ve already started the countdown.
