This movie is going to be awesome.
I remember EVERYTHING being orange and teal in 1984!
Then again, I was the tight end coach for the Miami Dolphins that year.
Did anyone notice in that very first shot - where she's walking on a ledge outside her apartment - that it appears Diana lives at the Watergate?
That's an auspicious DC address...
Patty Jenkins on why (not how) Steve Trevor is back for the sequel:
“I can’t tell you [how he’s back], but here’s what I will say: We didn’t put Steve Trevor in this movie because we just wanted to put Steve Trevor in this movie. When we thought of the story for this film while we were making the first film, a eureka moment came and it couldn’t have been told without Chris Pine playing Steve Trevor. So I promise you it’s not a gimmick, it’s integral to the story, it was incredibly important that we had him and we just super enjoyed it. So it was great having Chris back but it’s also important to the story that I can’t wait for you to see.”

Patty Jenkins Teases Chris Pine’s Return in ‘Wonder Woman 1984’: “It’s Not a Gimmick”
The reappearance of Chris Pine in the movie is the one weird thing that's going to be very hard to explain. But I concede that it's a fantasy based on magic, which is the core of who Wonder Woman is. Once you buy into that, almost anything is possible.
I watched this yesterday not knowing anything about the origins of the comic book, excellent and recommended for adult fans.
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940's. While Marston's feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her 'sexual perversity', he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston's muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research -- while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
I always thought the rolled-up blazer sleeves looked awkward.
On a side note, I'm in the DC area. Some scenes were filmed at a shopping mall in Southwest. A guy I used to work with was getting into acting and was an extra in a scene. He told me they liked him so much, they gave him a part as a news announcer, but I think he said they were going to dub another actor's voice. I'm interested to see if he makes the final cut.
I keep seeing the Trailer at the Theater , i think it looks AMAZING , i loved the 1st film & have been looking forward to the 2nd one , the Only gripe is such a long wait to see it ..... But i'm in for the 3-D version
It's a gimmick.
More specifically - it is standard operating procedure for sequels. Got to go with what worked before. Can't come up with anything original.
That is where I bought my first CD player (1983 or 1984) under their own brand name for about $400! Almost $1K in 2020 dollars according to the internets.
Loved the first one, so I'm in!
A pitty that it seems that Chris Pine will no longer play the role of James T. Kirk. I'm a Star Trek fan but I always disliked Shatner both him and his acting. I think Pine plays a great Kirk without trying to be Shatner.
At least it isn't that horrible Blue Monday 97! I'd go back in time just to stop that from ever being remixed.
I believe they used "Blue Monday '88" in "Atomic Blonde".
I got it wrong, yes the 88 version was the dreadful one.
alternate universe? she reverses time with her powers? just ignore the first one lol? twin?
The superhero standalone was meant to hit theaters in early June; it will now go out in August.
Warner Bros. is pushing back the release of upcoming superhero tentpole Wonder Woman 1984 two months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The sequel, which was set to hit theaters in North America on June 5, will now hit the big screen on Aug. 14.
"When we greenlit WW 1984 it was with every intention to be viewed on the big screen and are excited to announce that Warner Bros. Pictures will be bringing the film to theaters on August 14th," Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said in a statement. "We hope the world will be in a safer and healthier place by then."
To quote Lucius Fox:
Another new poster:
Re-scheduled again this time to Oct 2.
They should have just bumped it out to Christmas. We're going to be in the middle of a second wave of COVID by October.
New trailer - with added Cheetah
Damn--looks fun. Is it ever actually coming out?
I really thought they were going to not have Kristen Wiig in full Cheetah form--I'm all in now.
