Wonder Woman 1984 gets a slew of colorful new character posters ahead of its debut in just a few weeks. After months and months of waiting, audiences will finally get the opportunity to see Wonder Woman 1984. Though the movie was in danger of yet another coronavirus-related delay, Warner Bros. found a release strategy that would allow Wonder Woman 1984 to avoid this fate. On December 25 (or earlier, in international territories), the movie will be available in theaters and on HBO Max, thus allowing fans the option of watching it from the safety of their home.
Set decades after 2017’s Wonder Woman, this new installment finds Gal Gadot‘s Diana Prince living the quiet life in Washington D.C. However, the emergence of new threats Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah (Kristen Wiig), complicate matters, as well as the return of her long lost love Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Though full reviews have yet to be released, early reactions for Wonder Woman 1984 have called it an ambitious and ultimately hopeful sequel. In short, fans have a lot to look forward to.
Ahead of Wonder Woman 1984‘s debut, IGN released four new character posters. Diana, Steve, Maxwell, and Barbara all get the spotlight here, reinforcing the fact that they’re the main players to look out for. Like much of the movie’s marketing so far, the posters are filled with brilliant waves of color. Check them out down below.
Director Patty Jenkins and Gadot earned quite the bonus to allow Wonder Woman 1984 to debut simultaneously on HBO Max. Though it was a shocking move, most agree this is the best scenario for Wonder Woman 1984 at this time. With theaters still questionable, Warner Bros. would’ve had to delay the movie for the fifth time if they didn’t allow for the HBO Max release. This way, everyone who wants to see the long-awaited (and evidently quite excellent) DC sequel can on their own terms. These colorful posters only heighten the excitement, and they seem to promise that fans can expect a colorful blast of action.
Diana has consistently proven herself to be one of the best parts of the DCEU, and Wonder Woman 1984 presents an excellent opportunity to develop her character even further. This is a much different Diana than the one seen in Wonder Woman, and it’ll be quite interesting to see how she’s changed in the time since the first film. The reappearance of Steve will likely bring back some old feelings, leading to a collision of the past and present. All told, Wonder Woman 1984 is shaping up to be a delightful adventure, and fans can’t wait to finally see it.
