Last Summer Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman gave hope to DC they can challenge Marvel in the superhero film genre. Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah. Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the Super Hero’s first outing, last summer’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. Wonder Woman 1984 will also be helmed by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role.
Today Warner Bros. Pictures announced principal photographer has started on the anticipated sequel, Wonder Woman 1984. They also teased us even more by releasing some images from the upcoming film. There is one potential ‘spoiler’ image which reveals the return of Steve Trevor! (Chris Pine) But is it really Steve Trevor?!
Yes, it seems Steve is alive and well in the 1980’s, but we don’t know how he did it.I’m sure in due time we will learn how he did it. The other image looks like the film’s title card WW ’84 which we assume stands for Wonder Woman 1984. Created in the style of an old VHS Tape graphics, getting into the mood of the film. The third image seems to be a wall of Television Screens and Diana Prince starring into the screens. A reference to 1980’s pop culture with everyone from Dallas to Star Wars getting a screen, reflecting a film packed with ‘Easter Eggs’…
As previously announced, the film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal.
Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins, Stephen Jones and Gal Gadot are producing the film. Rebecca Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.
Joining her behind the scenes are several members of Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” team, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”) will cut the film.
Production will take place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Virginia, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.
Wonder Woman 1984 /WW ’84 is set to open in the UK, Ireland and the USA cinematically from November 1st, 2019.
