Are you ready for Diana in all her ’80s glory? The first pics from the Wonder Woman sequel have made their way online today, courtesy of director Patty Jenkins, followed by Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and we have some questions.
If you saw Wonder Woman—and you probably did, considering it was the most profitable superhero movie of 2017—you probably remember that Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) gave his life at the end of the movie, which set everyone to wondering about the character’s status in the sequel. We’ve known for a while that Chris Pine would be involved, but the particulars were still a bit fuzzy, and they still are, but now we’ve at least got visual confirmation:

You may also already know that the movie’s title, which the tweets seem to confirm is Wonder Woman 1984, has already been teased in recent weeks, confirming the movie’s rumored ’80s setting. And doesn’t Steve Trevor just fit right in, strolling through the mall in his glorious track suit? The particulars are still up in the air, though. Is this some kind of resurrected Steve, or a younger relative of Steve Trevor, also named Steve Trevor, or some third option? There are plenty, some of them sillier than others, but somehow, it’s going to happen, and it won’t be just a flashback or some other cameo—he’s in the ’80s, in person.
We’ve also got Diana standing in front of a large bank of TV screens, which is reminiscent of the scan line-laden, slightly distorted logo for the movie. With the given Cold War time period, it raises the question as to whether that’s just a visual motif or it will figure into the plot in a larger way, possibly in terms of surveillance or manipulation of the public through the media. The movie certainly seems to be geared more towards spy activity, since no one in the DC movie universe’s present day remembers Wonder Woman running around the ’80s.
What do you think? It’s going to be a long wait for the November 1, 2019 release date.
