It’s finally here ladies and gentlemen, the trailer for a movie that was originally set to come out five days from now, Wonder Woman 1984. The sequel to the first real big success for the DCEU promises a grand adventure filled with things to tug on our 80’s nostalgic heartstrings, much like IT and Stranger Things. Seriously… it’s all 80’s throughout the trailer. The first film brought in over $400 million domestically and just over $821 million worldwide and set several records.
The film was also a cultural event for females and notched several female achievements in Hollywood. However, this writer feels some people have a serious case of “the history of now-ness” and forget about the achievements and strong female characters from the past. That is my opinion alone and not indicative of others here at LRM Online or the company in general.
The big question is how this film will fit in with WB/DC’s new comic book movie approach. We know that there is still a version of the DCEU Zack Snyder created, but that more independent films like Joker may be on the way. There were hopes in the past that a Flashpoint based Flash movie would help create the multiverse and give WB and DC some wiggle room. Although, I’ll believe in a Flash movie is happening when I see a shot of the clapperboard from day one of shooting.
The film is now set to hit theaters June 5, 2020 and faces a little competition. A few weeks prior you have Fast & Furious 9 and Artemis Fowl (which Disney hopes will be a big franchise) and in the weeks following it’ll face the reboot of Candyman and Soul from Pixar.
