A New Era Begins In This Retro Pic From Wonder Woman 1984

Diana Prince of Themyscira tries to make sense of the '80s in this all-new action shot from Wonder Woman 1984, the Warner Bros. sequel set for release in 2019.

She’s witnessed The Great War and basked in the relaxed ambiance of Themyscira, but for her latest adventure, Diana Prince is headed for uncharted territory: the 1980s.

Welcome to Wonder Woman 1984, the Warner Bros. sequel that’s currently lensing across parts of Washington D.C. with Chris Pine in tow. Yes, against all odds, Steve Trevor lives, though writer-director Patty Jenkins is yet to offer an explanation for his surprise return and, frankly, that’s okay, as the filmmaker is likely fighting to keep spoilers at bay.

We do, however, have a second photo to pore over, and this one features Diana Prince herself, who’s pictured staring into a dozen small televisions, presumably trying to make sense of this radical new era. It certainly makes for a big change from the grueling trench warfare of World War I. Also, see if you can spot J.R. Ewing from Dallas hiding in plain sight.

The first Wonder Woman film launched in the summer of 2017 and went on to become something of a global phenomenon, raking in $821.9 million and scores of glowing reviews – even to this day, it’s still widely considered to be the most accomplished entry into the DC Extended Universe, so we imagine Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot are approaching this one with a sense of confidence.

Besides, Steve frickin’ Trevor is back, back, back, and while his welcome return may defy logic, there’s no denying Chris Pine’s chemistry with Gadot. Here’s to their next big-screen adventure.

One glance at the DCEU calendar tells us that Wonder Woman 1984 has been scheduled for release on November 1st, 2019 – six weeks earlier than initially expected, after Warner Bros. brought Diana’s second solo outing forward so as to avoid a clash with Star Wars: Episode IX.
