“Diana, one day, you’ll become all that you dream of and more,” a character says in voice-over, who sounds a lot like Antiope (Robin Wright), Diana’s aunt and the Amazonian army general, “and everything will be different.” Meanwhile, we get new Wonder Woman 1984 footage of a bird’s eye view of a city, an empty street, and Diana dancing with Steve (Chris Pine), her former love interest and the pilot who was presumed dead in Wonder Woman, next to the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool in Washington D.C. Elsewhere, in Piccadilly Circus, the citizens of London gaze up at the giant advertising boards lit up in a mysterious golden light.
There’s a mysterious blink-and-you-miss-it inclusion for the archaeologist Barbara Ann Minerva (Kristen Wiig), who will turn into the villain Cheetah during Wonder Woman 1984. We then see Diana running on the streets of D.C. intercut with her performance at the Amazon Games in a flashback. In present day, she latches onto a jumbo jet with her lasso and takes off — oh my — just as Antoipe’s voice notes: “You’ll become a legend.” The new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer gives us a bunch of wordless scenes, including Diana and Steve hugging, Barbara launching herself at Diana, Diana unloading a bullet and flicking it with her bracelets, and launching herself off a truck that causes it to topple.
In addition to Gadot, Wright, Pine, and Wiig, Wonder Woman 1984 also stars Pedro Pascal as charismatic businessman Maxwell Lord, and Connie Nielsen as Diana’s mother and Amazonian queen Hippolyta. Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Kristoffer Polaha and Amr Waked have undisclosed roles. Patty Jenkins returns as director; she co-wrote the film with Geoff Johns and David Callaham. Gadot is also a producer on Wonder Woman 1984 alongside Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Stephen Jones, and director Patty Jenkins. It is a production of Atlas Entertainment and Stone Quarry, with Warner Bros. Pictures as the worldwide distributor.
Wonder Woman 1984 is out December 16 in the UK, December 24 in cinemas in India, and December 25 on HBO Max and cinemas in the US.
