As today marks the year-long countdown to Wonder Woman 1984, director Patty Jenkins has revealed the film’s first poster which showcases Diana’s new armour for the DC Extended Universe sequel.
The poster certainly shows its trippy 80s influence the film will have. Jenkins recently spoke about Wonder Woman 1984‘s 80s setting and why she not only picked that decade, but the specific year of 1984. The film will see Gal Gadot reprise her role as Diana alongside a returning Chris Pine as Steve Trevor and new faces Kristen Wiig as Barbara Ann-Minerva, aka the Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal in an unknown role.
While we have a poster for the film, fans will have to wait a while longer for another look at Wonder Woman 1984 as Jenkins has confirmed the rumour Warner Bros. is skipping a Hall H presentation at the San Diego Comic Con this year. This means not only will fans not get a teaser trailer for Wonder Woman 1984, but there won’t be any special looks at Joker, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) or non-DC films like Godzilla vs. Kong or It: Chapter Two. Fans may have to wait until closer to December where Jenkins said the marketing campaign for Wonder Woman 1984 will really kick off.
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… pic.twitter.com/QllFzhYRA6

While the film is a follow-up to Wonder Woman, both Gadot and producer Charles Roven have said though it continues Diana’s journey, it’s not strictly a straight-up sequel to the 2017 film, but simply the next instalment of the franchise like a James Bond or Indiana Jones film would be treated.
Wonder Woman 1984 sees Gal Gadot once again leading the cast as Diana Prince alongside the returning Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Ewen Bremner (Charlie), Said Taghmaoui (Sameer), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe), Doutzen Kroes (Venelia) and new additions Kristen Wiig (Ghostbusters) as Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones), Natasha Rothwell (Love, Simon), Ravi Patel (Master of None, Grandfathered) and Gabriella Wilde (Doctor Who, Poldark) in an as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on June 5th 2020.
