With so much in flux about release dates and theater openings and all that - I guess any movie I can talk about should be considered a win. While most films have vacated the summer season, there are a few that are holding out for a 2020 release and among those, Wonder Woman 1984 is certainly one of the biggest. While the MCU may be out, the DCEU is still hanging in there - though we'll see if that eventually changes. For now, Patty Jenkins' sequel is one of the few big films on the near horizon.
Following some bumpy roads where Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Suicide Squad had some questioning the future of the DCEU - Patty Jenkins managed to right the ship with Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman. Not only was it entertaining, it earned over $412 million domestic and $821 million worldwide. It was also much lighter in tone - without sacrificing action - over the dark and dour previous films. Thus, we get to Wonder Woman 1984, which finds our heroine in the age of big hair, fast money and power ballads. Oh, and also Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) is back, somehow, but with the plot still up in the air I guess that little plot point will have to be revealed in due time. Joining the fun will be Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva aka Cheetah and Pedro Pascal as Max Lord (with a name like that, you know he has to be bad). We also get to see more of the Amazon homeland with Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright reprising their roles as Hippolyta and Antiope respectively. Gabriella Wilde, Ravi Patel, Kristoffer Polaha and Natasha Rothwell help round out the cast. As I said, no plot details have been revealed as yet, with only the trailers to go on and, for once, they're not giving much away other than a rocking soundtrack, a fight in a mall and plenty of 80s excess. Look, if this comes out in summer and theaters are indeed open - I'll certainly want to check this out but I'm guessing it will be pushed back. Still, there is some hope we'll get at least one blockbuster this summer. Rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence.
