The first trailer for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ with several big reveals as well as a long anticipated reunion ahead of the film’s release in 2020…
“Wonder Woman 1984” won’t arrive in theaters until June 5, 2020 but the first full length trailer has finally arrived.
Set nearly 70 years after the original “Wonder Woman” movie, the sequel features Diana Prince in a much different world than when we last left her at the close of World War I when she stopped Ares but lost the love of her life Steve Trevor.
Now in 1984, Wonder Woman is facing all new threats as revealed in the expansive trailer that gives us a first look at Pedro Pascal as the diabolical mastermind Maxwell Lord, who is promising a much better world if you’ll only trust him and that’s usually the hallmark of a bad guy about to do very bad things. We also get a look at Kristen Wiig, who plays Barbara Ann Minerva aka Cheetah, and it appears she’s befriended Diana but it’s not likely that bond will last throughout the movie.
The appearance that will likely confuse most people is the return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor after he died in the original “Wonder Woman” film yet he’s back and reunited with Diana in the sequel. Because they are just giving away Steve Trevor’s return in the trailer, it seems like that this is a set up for an even bigger reveal about who’s actually behind that famous face that Diana loves so much.
It seems entirely possible that Steve Trevor in “Wonder Woman 1984” is actually J’onn J’onzz aka the Martian Manhunter, who has the ability to shape-shift and take on the form of any human. The arrival of the Martian Manhunter in the DC film universe has been rumored for years but it seems this would be the perfect way to introduce him.
The final major reveal in the trailer comes in the closing seconds as we get our first look at Hawkgirl, which was a rumored appearance ever since photos from filming first surfaced in 2018. Now it’s confirmed that Hawkgirl and possibly Hawkman will be joining the DC film universe as part of “Wonder Woman 1984.”
Take a look at the first trailer for “Wonder Woman 1984” and get ready for the film to arrive in theaters on June 5, 2020.
