A brand new look at Gal Gadot in action during Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 has arrived online.
Wonder Woman 1984 will bring Gal Gadot’s superheroine — previously seen taking part in World War I in Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman and battling Doomsday and Steppenwolf in the modern-day during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, respectively — to the decade of Reagan, Thatcher, and Deadly Class.
USA Today shared a new image from the film, which features Diana in action near the Capitol Dome in Washington, D.C., as part of their 2020 year in movies preview. You can check it out below.
The image shows Diana sprinting through Washington as a group of soldiers are stood behind her. It isn’t clear who she’s chasing, but it gives fans an excellent look at Gal Gadot’s costume in Wonder Woman 1984, with the bright colors of the armor really lending themselves to the era of the movie.
Little is known about the ins and outs of the plot, although it appears that Maxwell Lord is a kind of ’80s lifestyle guru in the vein of Tony Robbins, using jargon to appeal to the masses and presumably manipulating them into doing things that serve his ends along the way. The Cheetah, meanwhile, seems to be a bit mousy and insecure at first…so her transformation will likely be a key part of the story. The USA Today preview says that Diana, who fans have seen working in art restoration in Batman v Superman and Justice League, will be working at the Smithsonian in the ’80s-set sequel.
Directed by Patty Jenkins from a script she co-wrote with David Callaham and a treatment she developed with Geoff Johns, Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wigg, Pedro Pascal, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Connie Nielson, and Robin Wright.
Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020.
