‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Debuts New Trailer at DC FanDome
Wonder Woman 1984 is getting closer to finally being released, and DC has tried to make our wait a bit easier to digest by releasing a new look at the highly anticipated film.
The Wonder Woman 1984 panel was the chosen one to kick off the Hall of Heroes section of DC FanDome, the online DC fan event that is going on as this article is being published, and the panel did not disappoint. Patty Jenkins and her cast told some very interesting stories about the making of the film, and answered several fan questions. There were even some surprise guests like Venus Williams, and the original Wonder Woman herself, Linda Carter. At the end of the panel, they debuted a new special look at the film (see the trailer below).
It’s interesting to note that the release date for the movie is nowhere to be found in the trailer or the social media posts, and it was not mentioned in the panel either, so perhaps WB is not 100% convinced it will debut on October 2, 2020.
In the trailer, we finally get a chance to see Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah, not just her alter ego Barbara Minerva, which we already saw in the previous trailer, last December. We also get a closer look at very exciting new action sequences involving the titular character, Diana Prince, as well as more from Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord, the other antagonist of the movie. Finally, we get the chance to have more time with Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor.
This new trailer also capitalizes on the bright and shiny colors of the new film, which as the title says, will take place in the 1980s. Diana Prince is now wearing a much more colorful suit than in 2017’s Wonder Woman and Justice League, and then she gets an even brighter suit that clearly draws inspiration from the Kingdom Come mini-series by Mark Waid and Alex Ross.
Wonder Woman 1984 is being directed by Patty Jenkins from a screenplay written by herself, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham. It stars Gal Gadot in the title role, with Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen reprising their roles from the first Wonder Woman, and adds Pedro Pascal as Max Lord and Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva/Cheetah in the villain roles.
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as authors like Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
