Full details on the Wonder Woman 1984 plot are currently unknown, though the film will follow Gal Gadot’s titular hero as she comes into conflict with the Soviet Union in the 1980s and encounters a formidable new adversary named Cheetah. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 4, 2020, while Joker is due to hit theaters in just over three months.
“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.
