Entertainment Weekly Reveals New ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Images
Wonder Woman 1984 is just four months away and today Entertainment Weekly released eight new images from the highly anticipated sequel, showcasing Gal Gadot as the iconic heroine, the mysterious return of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor, potential villains Maxwell Lord and Barbara Minerva, and Diana’s golden armor.
Most of the images appear to come from December’s trailer, giving away nothing that we don’t already know and answering none of the questions that the trailer raised. Like, how is Steve Trevor alive in 1984 when we watched him die in 1917? But alive he is, and rocking that eighties fanny pack;
One can only imagine how 1980s aircraft must look like to a First World War pilot like Trevor. Judging by Pine’s expression I’d say they’re pretty awe inspiring. Or maybe, just maybe, we’re getting the invisible yet. This next image, and the shot in the trailer, could certainly be interprited that way.
It’s still not clear how Kristen Wiig’s Barbara Minerva factors into the story. In the trailer she appears to be friends with Diana but we know that her super villain alter ego, Cheetah, also has a role to play. One thing is clear though, Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord is up to no good. And he’s very interested in whatever this artefact is in Minerva’s office;
There’s some nice shots of Wonder Woman in action, both at the Virginia Mall and in the White House, though what brings Diana to Washington is still a mystery. I’ve said it before but I just love the brighter colors of her costume in all of the images we’ve seen so far from this movie.
And then there’s two shots of Diana in her golden armor inspired by Wonder Woman’s appearance in Kingdom Come. Must admit, I never expected to see this in live action before they revealed it was in the movie. It’s not my favorite look for the character but it’s still awesome to see it come to life like this.
A final image gives a look behind the camera, at Gal Gadot alongside director Patty Jenkins.
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which includes a feature on Wonder Woman 1984, goes on sale this Friday.
Wonder Woman 1984 is due to hit theaters on June 5, 2020.
