Fans at the “Wonder Woman” Comic-Con Panel Got Super Lucky

Gal Gadot in "Wonder Woman"

Walkmans, leg warmers… and Wonder Woman.

The ’80s better prepare itself because Diana Prince means business.

Production on the sequel to last year’s Woman Woman film, Wonder Woman 1984 is already 3 weeks in, and members of the cast, as well its director, treated fans to some on-set secrets during Comic-Con.

Director Patty Jenkins revealed just why that decade had been chosen, saying, “One of my favorite things about making the original was that it took place during World War I in 1917, an era full of metaphors like modernity and the mechanized world. I grew up in the ’80s, and this has its own look and feel. The reason I am excited is it showed mankind at its best and worst. It was grand and wonderful, there was great music and there were elegant and beautiful things. But other things about the decade revealed the worst of us. To have Wonder Woman in that period of time that was us at our most extreme is wonderful.”

Jenkins also teased Chris Pine’s return (you may remember that Steve Trevor didn’t quite survive the first film…) telling the audience: “It’s something I’m super excited for everybody to see, [Chris] is a very important part of our movie.”

And if that wasn’t enough, those in Hall H also got to see a clip from the film which featured Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, kicking ass in a mall.

Wonder Woman 1984 premieres on November 1st 2019.
