Wonder Woman 2 is now officially called Wonder Woman 1984. The reason is simple: it’s set in 1984. Here are some images to celebrate the fact that shooting has now commenced. Gal Gadot is back in the lead role and also back is…Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. This is big news because he seemingly bit the big one at the end of the last movie.
What’s going on? Who knows, but I’m guessing Patty Jenkins and company knew that Pine’s involvement would leak onto the interwebs, so they thought ‘what the hell, why not?’.
Probably a good call. You know how crazy these DC Comics fanboys can get.
Here’s the official dope from Warner Bros:
BURBANK, CA, June 13, 2018 – 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.
As previously announced, the film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. And Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor.
