To celebrate the start of production on Wonder Woman 1984, director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot, have both released new stills from the film, spotlighting not only its new 1980’s setting, but the return of Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine!
The stills come as quite the surprise, even showing that Steve Trevor had ages since the first film, creating the possibility of him surviving. Hit the jump to check out the other still image, and full official press release from Warner Bros.
Wonder Woman 2 is reportedly set to start filming next summer in time for its December 2019 release date, with rumors pointing to the film taking place during the 1980’s Cold War era. This would line up nicely with a Wonder Woman trilogy that leads to her in the Present Day, post-Justice League in her third film.
The most interesting news here, however, is that Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is set to return for the sequel. There’s no word on whether this is through flashbacks, or a mysterious return of sorts, but we’ll know more in time.
Warner Bros. has released the first details of Wonder Woman’s upcoming DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K Ultra HD release, alongside a new announcement trailer that Gal Gadot posted this morning. Wonder Womanwill be released on home video August 29 digitally and September 19 in physical media.

The Disney live-action panel is garnering a lot of awesome news, with one of the biggest being the above first teaser trailer for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, directed by Ava DuVernay. The star-studded cast looks fantastic, with newcomer Storm Reid taking the lead role, accompanied by Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and more.
A Wrinkle in Time hits theaters on March 9th, 2018.
To say that Wonder Woman is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer is, put simply, an understatement. This film is easily one of the most anticipated films of all time, with an unimagineable amount of pressure on the shoulders of director Patty Jenkins, and star, Gal Gadot. With the future of the DC Entertainment Universe, and female-led films all laid at their feet, it would be enough to sink anyone else.
However, these aren’t normal filmmakers. Nor are they normal stars. The crew behind Wonder Woman is clearly one of the most passionate to ever be put behind, or on camera, and it’s evident based on the powerfully near-flawless movie they’ve created. Hit the jump for my long-awaited thoughts on Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman officially has no post-credits scene, making the Suicide Squad tag a bit of an odd duck for DC’s future. Possibly a one-off to help setup Justice League in the near future. CinemaBlend caught up with producer Charles Roven. “I’m not going to say we’d never do one,” Roven hinted. “There was one in Suicide Squad. But I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past.”
While I feel that an end-tag here could have been very beneficial for the future of Justice League, DC Entertainment’s next, most anticipated film, I can understand the decision. Who knows? Marvel has often times in the past kept the post-credits sequence under lock and key until the film hits general theaters. Could we be seeing that here?
The final full trailer for Wonder Woman before the film’s release has finally hit, and it is one hell of a trailer indeed. We see a lot of the same footage as usual, but with plenty of new footage of a young Diana, and see some new shots of the war.
It’s a grand trailer for one of the most anticipated films of the year. Each new piece of footage I see for this makes me more and more excited, and I absolutely can’t wait. The only thing I’m a little upset about, is that we still haven’t seen Ares, the rumored real villain of the film, though many have speculated that his appearance would spoil a pivotal plot twist in the film. We’ll just have to see when Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2nd.
