The Wonder Woman sequel, starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, has officially started filming — and with that announcement comes the first official details and images. While we’ve been hearing rumblings about the plot for some time, we now know the title, the time it takes place, the principal cast, and a few unexpected surprises.
The first film marked the first time DC’s Amazonian warrior woman came to life on the big screen in live-action. Patty Jenkins directed Wonder Woman to the tune of $821.8 million worldwide and surpassing the box office gross of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League in the United States. Obviously, a sequel was gonna happen.
So how will the gatekeepers of the DC Extended Universe top the first one? Here’s everything we know (so far) about the sequel.
What’s the title?
The film that fans and media have been referring to as Wonder Woman 2 for the past year is now titled Wonder Woman 1984. While this certainly isn’t the Owellian future a certain literary work predicted (or is it?!), the title confirms the sequel will take place in the 1980s towards the end of the Cold War. For reference, it was 1917 when Diana fished a crashed American military pilot out of the waters of Themyscira and embarked on a mission to stop the God of War, Ares.
