“We had tremendous success releasing the first ‘Wonder Woman’ film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution.
“Wonder Woman 1984” is set in the 1980s and the film brings back Patty Jenkins as director and co-writer. Gadot is starring, along with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor with Kristen Wiig as Cheetah. Pedro Pascal has also been cast in the film.
“Wonder Woman” became the highest grossing film directed by a woman in 2017, grossing $412.5 million domestically and $821 million worldwide.
Set during the late height of Cold War tensions, the film sees Diana come into conflict with the Soviet Union and encountering a new enemy in Cheetah.
