At long last we get our first good look at director Patty Jenkins’ follow up to Wonder Woman — Wonder Woman 1984 — this time featuring Diana Prince in mid-80’s America.
There’s a lot to take in while you’re grooving to Blue Monday by New Order and enjoying the heck out of Jenkins’ big 80’s aesthetic: Kristin Wiig as Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva before her villainous transformation into Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as an infomercial hawking Maxwell Lord, and a resurrected Steve Trevor (played once again by Chris Pine).
For Jenkins’ sequel, Hans Zimmer has replaced Rupert Gregson-Williams to do the film’s score. Zimmer previously scored Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first and second films in the DC Extended Universe.
Oh yeah…and Gal Gadot kicking all types of ass, including a scene where she’s SWINGING ON HER LASSO ON A FREAKING LIGHTING BOLT!
Ahem…sorry…got a bit overly excited there. Wonder Woman 1984 will be in theaters June 5, 2020.
