Gal Gadot has revealed that she doesn’t consider Wonder Woman 1984 to be a sequel and instead considers it a whole new movie in an of itself.
Gadot shared her comments during the DC panel in Hall H during San Diego Comic-Con. Perhaps this is an indication that the alleged not-sequel will barely connect to the plot of the first film, but we already know that Chris Pine is returning as Steve Trevor despite sacrificing his life in the first Wonder Woman.
Chronologically, it makes sense. The first film took place during World War I, and with the Wonder Woman 1984 taking place in the middle of the 80s it is unlikely that many of the characters that were in the first film would even be alive in 1984. Steve Trevor’s return is not yet explained, but he may just be the only character to return from the first film. Check out her comments as reported by us live at Comic-Con below!
