Wonder Woman 1984 Releases New Images

The waiting for Wonder Woman 1984 was almost over when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world hard and forced us to wait even longer for the release of the second installment of our favorite DC female superhero, as it will hit movie theaters now on August 13. At least we have something to look forward to once the coronavirus mess is over.

In the meantime, to not keep us hanging and waiting for more, Empire exclusively revealed two new images of Diana in the upcoming movie and interviewed Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot. In the interview, she explained that we are not just moving into a new decade in Wonder Woman 1984 but that Diana has also changed since the first movie.

“The first movie was a coming of age, it was Diana becoming Wonder Woman,” Gadot says and adds: “She was very naive and she didn’t understand the complexities of life. A fish out of water. In this movie, that’s not the case whatsoever. Diana has evolved. She’s much more mature and very wise. However, she’s very lonely. She lost all of her team members and she’s guarded. And then something crazy happens.”

The ”something crazy” can be seen in one of the newly released pictures of the movie. In the images that come along with the article, Diana can be seen in her new golden eagle armor, and in the second, she can be seen dancing with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) – or at least it looks like they are dancing. It also looks like Diana is wearing the white dress that we can see her wearing in the trailer when she unexpectedly encounters Steve again.

Having watched Wonder Woman multiple times, fans, of course, know that Steve actually died at the end of the movie. Obviously, in her interview, Gadot does not give away how and why Steve returns. After all, it is for the fans to discover that in the upcoming movie. Nevertheless, she gives a reason why he was brought back that does not have to do anything with the plot of the movie:

“Chris was an integral part of the movie, and of its success,” says Gadot. “And because he and I and Patty [Jenkins] really enjoyed working together, we all wanted to have him back. And Patty and [co-writer] Geoff Johns found the best way that serves the narrative to bring Steve back.”

If these new images have not done the trick yet to excite you even more to go and watch the movie in August, I highly recommend watching the trailer again (and perhaps the first Wonder Woman).
