Diana Prince is transported to a time of big hair and funky tunes, but with the Cold War serving as the backdrop for the new film, a new set of challenges emerge for the superhero

It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since we first saw Gal Gadot stun as Wonder Woman in the hit superhero film of the same name. Of course, we were treated to her appearance in further DCEU films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, but those performances were too brief.

Thankfully, Gadot and her Wonder Woman persona will be returning to the big screen and we just got our first glimpse of all the action in the new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer. In it, the superhero is transported to a decade defined by big hair and groovy tunes, not to mention a generation that has lived through the Cold War.

When the first poster for the film was released, fans were treated to a glimpse of the Golden Eagle armour costume. As expected, it was empowering, but also incredibly opulent – befitting of one of the most sensational superheroes ever created. But that little glimpse was expanded in the newly released trailer, as Wonder Woman sports the armour in all its glory for the first time. The trailer depicted armour that is a lot more intricate than that which the poster revealed and not surprisingly, fans are eager to see what that means for Gadot and her character’s arc in the film.

Another point of interest in the trailer is the presence of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Shown to be fighting alongside Diana, this seems to suggest that Trevor’s motivations are pure but as with all superhero movies, we wouldn’t be surprised if there was a twist that then led to some kind of betrayal in the film. For the moment though (and as the trailer would suggest), Trevor and Diana seem to be aligned once more.

And while DC trailers tend to give away a lot of the action, Wonder Woman 1984’s trailer has done a remarkable job of keeping tight-lipped on a number of crucial events in the film. While it did introduce some of the villains, including Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah, it didn’t give fans any indication as to how the character will transform into the villain and set about to destroy Diana. Similarly, fans are also unsure who will serve as the main villain of the film, with Lord seemingly being portrayed to hold that position.

It looks like we’ll all have to hold out for the second trailer in the hope that it gives us answers to the questions we are so desperately asking. According to Warner Bros., fans should expect the following: “Diana Prince comes into conflict with the Soviet Union during the Cold War in the 1980s and finds a formidable foe by the name of the Cheetah.”

For the moment however, we’ll just have to wait with anticipation for the actual film which will be released on June 5, 2020.
