Wonder Woman 1984, like any of the other highly-anticipated films of the year 2020, has undergone a few inevitable delays pertaining to its release date. Initially scheduled to hit the theatres in December 2019, the film was then pushed back to summer 2020 before it was caught up in a few more delays afterwards. Things have been tough for the film industry during this pandemic. However, the wait is almost over as this will be the only superhero movie that survives the year, and will finally show on HBO Max on December 25, 2020, in the USA, and in cinemas worldwide from December 16 onwards. Hurray!
While waiting for the Christmas Release to come, Warner Bros. has dropped two of its never-seen-before teasers of Wonder Woman 84 to keep us company. The first one, released on November 19, witnesses a young Diana (Lilly Aspell) in Themyscira, and the Amazons participating in an intense sport. We are also treated to a lot of Diana (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor’s (Chris Pine) scenes together, apart from Diana’s Golden Lasso-swinging shots showing off Wonder Woman in her stunning, brand new Golden Eagle Armor.
The second footage showcases more action-packed scenes from the movie, lending the spotlight to Kristen Wiig as Cheetah, as well as unravelling a new look at the fight scenes between Diana and Barbara. A treat for the Star Wars fans, be sure to witness our beloved Mando as Maxwell Lord, one of the two main villains in the sequel.
From what we have seen in the clips, Wonder Woman 1984 looks promising as it presents applaudable action sequences coupled with a solid plotline, which gives us a load more of confidence in the DCEU film. We all remember what happened to some of the previous DC films.
Director Patty Jenkins revealed in a recent interview with Total Film, asking her about the possibility of a Wonder Woman 3, that the plotline for another potential sequel came from their state of mind six months ago, but everything has come to a halt for now. “I’ve really hit the pause button, because the truth is, where that plotline was coming from was our state of being six months ago. And so I want to make sure that I’m totally absorbing whatever the result of this pandemic is," Jenkins said. There has also been talks about an Amazonian spin-off, but I guess we’ll have to wait till the pandemic is over (or under control) before we hear any good news.That being said, it might take us a while before we get to see Diana again after the release of WW84, but not all is lost because we have other DCEU films in the making as well, and next on the must-watch list is redemption in the form of Zack Snyder's Justice League.
