The trailer for DC’s upcoming superhero film Wonder Woman 1984 won’t be available until December, but new footage was recently screened at Warner Media’s HBO Max’s presentation.
In the description of the footage (seen below), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) are in Washington DC and what transpires next will get fans geared up for the action to come when the movie lands.
Much of the footage appears to be set in Washington DC. We see a shot of Diana and Steve Trevor walking in front of the Washington Monument. Diana is wearing a white, Greek goddess-inspired dress and reaches out to caress Steve’s cheek. Her voice-over narration mourns, “I can almost see it, like a beautiful dream.“
That narration would seem to suggest this is a dream sequence of some sort, though the footage itself looks real enough.
A second scene lends more credence to the idea that Steve Trevor is alive and well and not just a figment of Diana’s imagination. We see Wonder Woman battling enemies inside the White House while wearing her new armor. She protects Steve from gunfire, grabs a gun and unloads it in slow-motion and pulls foes closer with her lasso. Another cryptic shot shows her whipping her lasso around to possibly deflect or redirect a bolt of lightning. Could she be fighting Zeus?geektyrant.com
Beyond knowing that Wonder Woman/Diana Prince will be acting as a spy during the Cold War and will hunt down a Russian spy, much hasn’t been revealed. It has also been reported that the timeline in this film will be different from the one established by Batman Vs Superman as here, Wonder Woman is already a known superhero.
Wonder Woman 1984 is directed by Patty Jenkins and co-stars Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord and Kristin Wing as Barbara Minerva (a.k.a. Cheetah). It will be in theaters from June 5, 2020.
