As anticipation builds for the upcoming followup to “Wonder Woman”, director Patty Jenkins took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a dazzling first look at the new costume worn by star Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman 1984”, which will place the Amazonian superhero in the era of “Dynasty”, MTV and Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
In her tweet, Jenkins laments the fact that she, Gadot and the rest of the cast (which includes “SNL” alum Kristen Wiig as super-villain Cheetah) won’t be on hand at Comic-Con this summer.
Explaining that promotional efforts for the “Wonder Woman” sequel won’t begin until the end of this year, Jenkins offers a sneak peek at Wonder Woman’s “Golden Eagle” armour, with Gadot standing in front of a pseudo-psychedelic, neon-style “WW” logo.
Gadot herself retweeted Jenkins’ photo, adding, “I cannot wait to share #WW84 with you all!!”
Not coincidentally, “Wonder Woman 1984” is scheduled to hit theatres on June 5, 2020 — exactly one year away.
