Warner Bros. revealed the first trailer for next year’s Wonder Woman sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984,” Sunday at Brazil’s annual Comic Con event, CCXP. Gal Gadot returns as superhero, Diana Prince, and director Patty Jenkins is back to direct.
The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 transports the superheroine to a decade defined by big hair, iconic musicians, and Ghostbusters. It’s also a decade defined by the Cold War, and that’s when Wonder Woman’s story takes place
Last July, Jenkins addressed why the second installment is set in the 1980s—a sizable time jump from the original’s WWI backdrop.
“One of my favorite things about making the original was that it took place during World War I in 1917, an era full of metaphors like modernity and the mechanized world,” she explained. “I grew up in the ’80s, and this has its own look and feel. The reason I am excited is it showed mankind at its best and worst. It was grand and wonderful, there was great music and there were elegant and beautiful things. But other things about the decade revealed the worst of us. To have Wonder Woman in that period of time that was us at our most extreme, is wonderful.”
Wonder Woman 1984 will hit theaters June 5, 2020.
