Warner Bros. has officially revealed the title of the Wonder Woman sequel.
The studio has announced that the highly-anticipated sequel is titled Wonder Woman 1984. Production is now underway, with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins back in the director’s chair and Gal Gadot and Chris Pine returning as Diana Prince and Steve Trevor.
Jenkins is working from a script by The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham. The script is based on a treatment by Jenkins and Geoff Johns, who recently confirmed that the film takes place in 1984.
Plot details for the Wonder Woman sequel are currently being kept under wraps. The film is said to follow Gal Gadot’s Amazonian Princess during the Cold War as she faces off against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
Kristen Wiig is on board as the film’s main villain, Cheetah, based off of the Barbara Ann Minerva version of the character from the comics. Narcos and Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal has also joined the cast of the film in a key role.
Wonder Woman 1984 is currently set to hit theaters on November 1, 2019. Make sure to keep an eye on Heroic Hollywood as more details on this project come out.
10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Now that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.
Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
