Patty Jenkins has revealed a new one-sheet poster for the upcoming sequel ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ in which ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ seems to have been a major inspiration. Jenkins also confirmed Warner Bros’ absence from Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Jenkins also went on to announce that the full campaign for the film will commence in December.
“By now you’ve heard: WB isn’t going to Hall H this year. We’re so sad to miss you there! And waiting until Dec. to start our official
#WW84 campaign in full– But the truth is… we can just… barely… wait…”

This time around Diana heads to the ’80s and now takes on a new foe in the form of The Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Chris Pine also returns as Steve Trevor.
Patty Jenkins returns to take the helm after the Super Hero’s first outing saw it take a record-breaking $822 million at the worldwide box office. Gal Gadot also returns as the titular superhero.
Joining Gal Gadot on the cast list is Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal who could possibly be playing Max Lord, a razor-sharp and powerful businessman who was a thorn in the side of the Justice League. Chris Pine also returns from the dead as Steve Trevor. Robin Wright is also expected to appear in a flashback scene with co-star Connie Nielson as Diana’s mother Queen Hippolyta.
Joining Jenkins behind the scenes are several members the Wonder Squad, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”) will cut the film. Hans Zimmer will also return to the DC universe after effectively ‘retiring’ from the comic book genre after Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, to provide the score.
The film is slated to be released June 5th 2020
