Even the world’s greatest heroes have had to be patient this year, and wait around for Miss Rona to stop messing with movie release dates.
The hotly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984, the retro sequel to Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins’ celebrated 2017 film, has been knocked back from the end of last year, to June, to August, and now we have the date upon which you can finally watch Diana of Themyscira kick some Reagan-era ass.
The film will pick up the Wonder Woman story in, duh, 1984, where Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) has been casually taking down bad guys for a hundred years or so, but is still left lonely and wounded by the absence of her love interest Steve Trevor (Chris Pine).
In a recent interview Gadot discussed her character’s sadness in the upcoming film, saying: “At her core, her calling is to be here and to help mankind to do good. And that’s exactly what she’s doing. But she’s still missing, you know, the one who was the love of her life. She never got to really explore the relationship.”
But when Steve unexpectedly arrives back in Diana’s life, could a pair of mismatched villains threaten to ruin everything for Wonder Woman? You’ll have to wait until Boxing Day to (fingers crossed!) catch the NZ release of the film, in which Pedro Pascal’s Trump-esque Max Lord and Kristin Wiig’s animalistic Cheetah character both threaten to steal the show.
