Suffering Sappho! the torturous wait for the sequel to Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins’ dynamic 2017 Wondy debut is finally (finally!) coming to an end. Its original release date was set for December 2019, then later moved to June 2020, but during this time, the world went rather topsy-turvy with the Covid pandemic shutting down the planet as we knew it, including cinemas… so no Wonder Woman for you then (sob!) But, in less than eight days (in the UK at least) Diana will once again don her golden lariat of Hestia, and bullet deflecting bracelets formed from the sacred shield of Aegis… and kick major Cheetah butt!You probably realise by now that we are huuuuge Wonder Woman fans here in the Precinct, she is our absolute favourite comic-book character of all time, so the delay has been almost unbearable, but, as previously mentioned, in eight short days that interminable intermission shall be over and we shall once again bask in the golden light that is Diana of Themyscira. So, to help pass the time and ramp up our excitement even more for Wondy’s return (not sure if possible!), we thought we’d share with you, our astonishing Amazonian associates, some of the latest screenshots, posters and trailers of the Themysciran Titan’s newest odyssey… by the mighty horns of Amalthea, it’s going to be legendary!
Diana dons her legendary Golden Eagle Armour to fight arch-enemy, Cheetah! (P1313 Fun Fact: The Golden eagle Armour made it’s first ever appearance in Mark Waid and Alex Ross’ fantastic 1996 series – Kingdom Come)
Kristen Wiig as Dr Barbara Ann Minerva and in full feral form as Wondy’s nemesis, The Cheetah! (P1313 Fun Fact: There have been four variants of Cheetah since her first ever appearance in Wonder Woman #6 in 1943, With Babs Minerva resolutely being the all time favourite amongst fans)
Merciful Minerva! Are you as excited for WW84 as we are here in the Precinct? Then why not sound off in the comments below, my absolutely astounding Amazonian affiliates!
Well it’s finally here, my astonishing Amazonian associates, THE one film trailer that I know you’ve all been waiting for… Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins’ sequel to the stunning 2017 Wonder Woman movie finally has a trailer, and Great Hera! it’s absolutely phenomenal!
The 2017 Wonder Woman movie really was a fantastic homage to William Marston’s groundbreaking creation, it captured everything that’s essential about Diana that fans wanted from DC’s premier female lead character. Her origin story respected both versions that have been laid out throughout her almost eight decades of virtual existence, daughter of Zeus and child of clay. Her Amazon sisters were also spectacularly brought to life and Chris Pine was perfect casting as the wry yet honourable Steve Trevor. Yet it was Gal Gadot as the titular heroine that stole the show, sublime casting that was ultimately the reason behind the film’s massive box office success.
After three torturous years of waiting, WW fanatics are finally blessed with a trailer for the much anticipated sequel, and it’s a doozy! 1980’s setting replete with era appropriate music and fashion, the return of Steve Trevor after he met his heroic fate in the original, Kristen Wiig as Dr Barbara Minerva aka Wondy nemesis The Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as the scheming sociopath Maxwell Lord, plus of course Gal Gadot back in her career defining role as Princess Diana of Themyscira… The trailer is astounding, and right here for your delectation. Enjoy:
