Wonder Woman 1984 (also known as WW84) is a 2020 American superhero film based on the DC character Wonder Woman. Produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Films, Atlas Entertainment, and The Stone Quarry, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is a standalone sequel of the 2017 film Wonder Woman and the ninth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Jenkins, Geoff Johns, and Dave Callaham from a story by Johns and Jenkins, it stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, alongside Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen. Set in 1984 during the Cold War, the film follows Diana and her past love Steve Trevor as they face off against Maxwell Lord and Cheetah.
Discussion of a sequel began shortly after the release of the first film in June 2017 and the decision to proceed was confirmed the following month. Principal photography began on June 13, 2018, with filming taking place at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden in England, as well as the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia in the U.S., London and Duxford in England, Tenerife and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands and Almería. Production wrapped on December 22, 2018, after a six-month shoot, with additional filming in July 2019.
Wonder Woman 1984 was originally scheduled for a wide theatrical release on June 5, 2020, but was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film premiered on December 15, 2020, via the DC FanDome virtual platform, and was released in the United States by Warner Bros. Pictures on December 25, 2020, both theatrically and via the HBO Max streaming service. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the direction, performances, visuals, action sequences, musical score, and escapist qualities, though some felt it inferior to its predecessor. It grossed $169.6 million worldwide against a production budget of $200 million, failing to break even due to limited theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic but became the most-watched straight-to-streaming film of 2020. A spin-off prequel series focusing on the Amazons of Themyscira, Paradise Lost, is in development at DC Studios.
The director of the first film, Patty Jenkins, who initially signed for only one film, had expressed interest in returning to direct the sequel. In June 2017, during an interview with Variety, comic book writer Geoff Johns revealed that he and Jenkins had started writing the treatment for a Wonder Woman sequel and that he had a “cool idea for the second one”. While speaking in a Q&A at a Women in Film screening of the film, Jenkins stated she would indeed direct the sequel. Jenkins later clarified that “it wasn’t a confirmation. Just talking about ideas and hopes.”
On July 22, 2017, at San Diego Comic-Con, the studio officially announced a sequel would be produced, with Jenkins returning as director; its title was listed as Wonder Woman 2. In September 2017, it was officially confirmed that Jenkins would be directing the sequel. On September 13, 2017, it was reported that The Expendables writer David Callaham would join the film to co-write the script with Jenkins and Johns, who had already been working on it for several months.
On February 28, 2018, it was reported that the film would be shot with IMAX film cameras in select action sequences. By late May 2018, long-time DCEU producer Zack Snyder confirmed on social media platform Vero that he, along with his wife Deborah Snyder, would serve as producers on the Wonder Woman sequel. On June 13, 2018, the title of the film was announced to be Wonder Woman 1984. A source close to Jenkins described it as a stand-alone film “in the same way that Indiana Jones or [James] Bond films are, instead of one continuous story that requires many installments.”
- Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman:
An immortal demigoddess, Amazon princess and warrior. Diana is the daughter of Hippolyta, the Amazonian queen of Themyscira, and Zeus, the king of the Olympian Gods. Gadot spoke about the character’s evolution, saying in the first film “[Diana] really is a fish out of water, coming from Themyscira into man’s world and learning about the complexities of human life, really. In Wonder Woman 1984, she’s been around. She’s wiser and she’s more mature. She’s guarded and lost all of her friends throughout the years, but she’s still doing the right thing, yet she is different from when we last saw her.” Gadot added, “In the first movie, we really explored the journey of the coming-of-age, of how Diana Prince became Wonder Woman and owned her full strengths and powers.”
- Lilly Aspell portrays a younger Diana, credited as Young Diana.
- Chris Pine as Steve Trevor:
An American pilot and spy from World War I and the lost love of Diana who died in the first film. His soul possesses another man, portrayed by Kristoffer Polaha in mirror reflections; only Diana can see his face.
- Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva / Cheetah:
A highly insecure geologist and gemologist who is befriended by Diana. She gradually transforms throughout the film by use of the Dreamstone.
- Pedro Pascal as Maxwell “Max Lord” Lorenzano:
A struggling yet charismatic businessman, famous for TV infomercials and the founder of Black Gold Cooperative. Lord’s character, according to Jenkins, is modeled on Bernie Madoff and Donald Trump. Director Patty Jenkins has stated Pascal’s performance as Lord was inspired by Gordon Gekko from Oliver Stone’s Wall Street and by Gene Hackman’s portrayal of Lex Luthor in Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman film, with Jenkins describing Lord as “a villain with potential to be dangerous and scary”.
- Robin Wright as Antiope: Hippolyta’s sister, general of the Amazon army and Diana’s aunt.
- Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta: The queen of Themyscira and Diana’s mother.
Also appearing in the film are: Amr Waked as Emir Said Bin Abydos, the ruler of the fictional oil-rich Middle Eastern nation of Bialya who Lord encounters; Kristoffer Polaha as the man whose body Steve Trevor appropriates, credited as “Handsome Man”; Natasha Rothwell as Carol, Barbara’s boss at the Smithsonian; Ravi Patel as Babajide, a man who provides Diana and Barbara documents of the Dreamstone’s history; Oliver Cotton as Simon Stagg, a dissatisfied investor in Lord’s company; Lucian Perez as Alistair, Lord’s son; Gabriella Wilde as Raquel, Lord’s assistant; Kelvin Yu as Jake, Diana and Barbara’s co-worker; and Stuart Milligan as the president of the United States, based on Ronald Reagan. Doutzen Kroes reprises her DCEU role as the Amazon Venelia.
Lynda Carter, who played the titular heroine in the 1970s television series, makes a cameo appearance midway through the film credits as Asteria, a legendary Amazon warrior who anciently possessed the powerful winged suit of armor. Gadot’s husband, Yaron Varsano and their two daughters, Alma and Maya, make brief appearances near the end of the film. Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock and Lucy Davis make a photographic cameo appearance, reprising their roles from Wonder Woman as Sameer, Charlie, Chief and Etta Candy, respectively.
