When I watched the “No Man’s Land” scene from Wonder Woman (2017), I had chills go down my spine. This truly starred a female superhero and despite Steve’s appearance in the scene, Diana held her own. As a DC comics fan, it gave me hope as to whether or not DC could establish their own superhero universe. As soon as I saw the announcement of the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer being released, I kept my tabs on social media, so I wouldn’t miss it. This trailer was epic.
When Kristin Wiig was first cast as The Cheetah, many fans were unconvinced. Personally, I trust the casting behind this film and I didn’t want to pass judgement until a trailer was released. I believe Kristin Wiig was a great choice for this role and I liked her overall look in the short moments within the trailer.
Steve Trevor is back! Gal Gadot and Chris Pine’s chemistry felt authentic in the first film, so I’m glad to see he’s back in some capacity. I’m intrigued as to how they will explain how he survived and appear “youthful” in the 1980’s. Comics are a weird medium as in various comic characters get killed and then are brought back, so bringing back Steve Trevor doesn’t feel odd to me.
Wonder Woman is one of my favorite superhero movies. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot are a power duo in superhero filmmaking. This trailer has gotten me more excited for this movie and it’s giving me a reason to look forward to 2020.
