In a recent post on Deviant Art, an artist under the name of jonathanserrot shared a retro style poster for the upcoming film, Wonder Woman 1984.
The poster in question has Wonder Woman drawn with a neon pink coloring as she hold her lasso, while wearing 80s style sunglasses. Behind her is a metallic looking W, a sun that looks like it appeared on a thirty year old computer and a ground layout that looks like something out of Tron. In other words, its a poster that does everything it can to look like something out the 80s and it succeeds at every point. You can see the full image below:
2017’s Wonder Woman was something of a surprise hit. After three films in the DC Extended Universe that failed to meet expectations in some form, Wonder Woman kind of blew everyone away. It’s approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes currently sits at 92% and earned over $821M worldwide and was the highest grossing superhero origin film ever release. Warner Brothers was quick to green light a sequel and, unlike other entries of the DCEU, Wonder Woman 1984 is the only sequel that seems like it will be released any time soon.
Plot details for Wonder Woman 1984 are currently under wraps, though the film will follow the Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s and encounters a new adversary named Cheetah.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Dave Callaham, who based the script on a treatment by Jenkins and Geoff Johns, Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot as the titular heroine, Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva/Cheetah, Pedro Pascal in an undisclosed role, and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor.
Wonder Woman 1984 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on November 1, 2019.

10 Great Potential Directors For DC’s ‘Green Lantern Corps’
Green Lantern Corps has been on the DC Films slate for quite some time, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything solid about the project. The film’s original release date was slated for 2020 yet no director, casting announcement or any real progress has been made so far. Warner Bros. and DC failed to lay the groundwork for the film by introducing a Green Lantern as a member of the Justice League (except for a small cameo in a flashback). It is safe to assume Warner Bros. wants to have a good amount of time to distance the general audience from the disastrous 2011 Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds. Yet now approaching seven years one has to wonder when this film will get off the ground? The success of Guardians of the Galaxy has proven no concept is too far out there for the general movie going audience and DC could have its own intergalactic saga to compete with Marvel by making this movie.
Warner Bros. and DC even have an interesting hook to separate Green Lantern Corps from not only Guardians of the Galaxy but also every other major superhero film. The DC project is supposedly a “buddy cop film set in space.” Basically Lethal Weapon meets Star Trek. Or even for a more modern reference, The Nice Guys meets Mass Effect. That’s a great pitch for any movie. Green Lantern Corps needs to be a higher priority for the studio than Lobo, Nightwing or that Joker origin movie.
The first step is finding the right director for the project. David S. Goyer, who has written a draft of the script, was rumored to be in talks to helm the project, but Warner Bros. and DC are paving a new path forward so they may want to try getting a better director. Hundreds of directors make interesting films every year and given the recent success of Black Panther, Wonder Woman and Thor: Ragnarok, it’s clear that some of the best choices come from unconventional places.
These are the ten directors that should be on Warner Bros. and DC’s radar to help bring the Green Lantern Corps to the big screen. Click Next to get started!
