Wonder Woman 1984: Release Date, Trailer, Cast and Everything Else You Need To Know

Posted 2019/10/24 1014 0

One of the big questions everyone was asking about Wonder Woman 1984 finally has an answer. No, not where to buy those shoulder pads Diana is rocking (though they are pretty nifty), but who Pedro Pascal will be playing in the upcoming sequel.

Below, we’ll run you through the deets, as well as filling you in on a release date, posters, and everything from shock cast inclusions (Chris Pine is back as Steve Trevor) to plot rumours, and footage descriptions.

Grab your Lasso of Truth, stick on those gauntlets, and get rocking and rolling down to the go-go ’80s. Here’s everything you need to know about Wonder Woman 1984.

Fast Facts:

  • Wonder Woman 1984 release date: June 5, 2020
  • Wonder Woman 1984 director: Patty Jenkins
  • Wonder Woman 1984 cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal
  • Wonder Woman 1984 writer(s): Dave Callaham, Patty Jenkins, Geoff Johns

Unfortunately, the Wonder Woman 1984 release date has been pushed back to June 5, 2020, which means we have a little while to wait before we see Diana Prince kicking ass again in Wonder Woman 1984. Originally set for November 1, 2019, the release date has shifted to take advantage of the lucrative summer period, which proved so successful for the first film.

Some fans hoped we would get the first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer at San Diego Comic Con 2018, but, while director Patty Jenkins did turn up with the cast and show off some exclusive Hall H footage, it was a bit too early for a trailer. The movie had only been shooting a few weeks at the time.

Sadly, the exclusive Comic Con footage – which featured Diana chasing down some bad guys in an ’80s mall – hasn’t been released to the public. Thankfully, though, we were there to witness it all, so if you want to know what happened, you can read all about it in the link below.

So, when can we expect a proper Wonder Woman 1984 trailer?

Hopefully, later this year. The original also had a summer release window and, often, earlier movies provide the best barometer for when to expect a sequel’s trailer. If that’s the case, we could perhaps expect one very soon.

With recent news (via WonderWoman84HQ on Twitter) that the movie is reportedly undergoing reshoots in London, we could be entering the final stretch for marketing preparations. Once filming is wrapped and in the can, things can properly start moving for a trailer. Expect something perhaps at the very tail-end of this year if that’s the case.

WONDER WOMAN 1984 CAST

Unsurprisingly, Gal Gadot is returning as Princess Diana/Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. However, the rest of the Wonder Woman 1984 cast is a little more shocking.

Not only is Diana’s love interest and leading man from the first movie, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), returning, but Diana’s mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and aunt General Antiope (Robin Wright) will also make an appearance. Why is this so shocking? Well – spoilers for Wonder Woman – both Steve and Antiope are dead by the end of the film, and while Hippolyta is alive, she’s on the island of Themyscira to which Diana “may never return”.

New faces joining the Wonder Woman 1984 cast include Kristen Wiig, who will play the villainous Cheetah (more on her later). Jenkins announced the casting on Twitter Twitter, saying: “So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true. So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can’t wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned.”

Plus, Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal (he of eyeball-gouging fame) has signed on to the sequel in what was once a mystery role. Jenkins has also given us a first look at his character via Twitter (above) and, in October 2019, has even taken to Twitter to reveal his true identity: Maxwell Lord.

Need a primer? Lord, as you can tell from the sharp suit, is a moneybags on a mission. Using his telepathic powers, he’s able to persuade and coerce even some of the Justice League to do his bidding. Could that extend to Diana? And is that why she’s seeing Trevor? Only time will tell.

Finally, American Ninja Warrior athlete Jessie Graff revealed via a Twitter video that she, too, will appear in Wonder Woman 1984. Given her impressive physique, we think it’s safe to say that she’ll be playing one of the Amazons.

WONDER WOMAN 1984 PLOT

There were rumours that Wonder Woman 1984 would be set in a later time period (but still not the present day) long before DCEU creative chief Geoff Johns came out and confirmed the ‘80s setting with a teaser image of the new title on his Facebook page. Now that we know those rumours were correct, we’ve yet to have any official word on the rest of the report, which claims that the Wonder Woman 1984 plot will see the Amazon warrior battle Soviet forces in the dying days of the Cold War.

Given the time period and the fact that the war setting of the first film worked so well, it sounds likely that a Cold War confrontation could be on the cards, but don’t expect another walk across No Man’s Land. The Cold War was just that… cold, which means it was fought on both sides by spies rather than soldiers. Wonder Woman as a spy? This doesn’t quite fit with her noble and honest character, but Diana will do anything to prevent mankind from destroying themselves, so who knows? Maybe we’ll find out that it’s Wonder Woman who prevented the Cold War from heating up…

One thing we do know is that Wonder Woman will at least start out her 1984 journey in America. In the first film she was based in Paris during the present day and we witnessed her origin story through her own flashback, which took us to Themyscira and then Europe during WW1. But Jenkins reveals to EW that for Wonder Woman 1984 “the story will take place in the US,” saying: “She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”

This statement fits with the images and footage we’ve seen so far, which feature classic American shopping malls and Washington museum The Smithsonian, so perhaps the Cold War rumour will prove to be false. After all, Diana would need to be in Europe to fight Soviet forces, but maybe the Wonder Woman 1984 plot merely begins in American before she travels to Europe, or perhaps there’s even some secret Soviet spies trying to infiltrate and bring down the US from the inside?
