Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins unveils the DC film's first teaser poster - revealing Diana's new costume. Gal Gadot made her debut as Diana Prince in the DC film franchise for Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, returning the following year in her solo movie, Wonder Woman. The World War I-set prequel followed Diana's childhood and evolution into a superhero, further setting up her appearance in Justice League, where she suited up alongside modern-day heroes. However, we'll next see Diana in another prequel to the modern continuity, in Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984.
Wonder Woman 1984 will operate as a direct sequel to Wonder Woman, but taking place later in the character's own timeline. Excitement for the Wonder Woman sequel has been high since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, but with 1984 delayed until June 2020 and Warner Bros. sitting out Hall H at SDCC this year, fans won't get their first look at footage of the movie for some time. Now, after Wonder Woman 1984 poster art was unveiled for the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Jenkins took the time to share an official poster for the upcoming sequel.
On Twitter, Jenkins revealed the first Wonder Woman 1984 teaser poster, featuring Gadot suited up as Diana Prince, this time donning a new costume than the one she wore in Wonder Woman. Further, the one sheet draws on the 80s inspiration of 1984 with some super psychedelic colors. Check out the poster and Jenkins' tweet below.
By now you’ve heard: WB isn’t going to Hall H this year. We’re so sad to miss you there! And waiting until Dec. to start our official #WW84 campaign in full-- But the truth is… we can just… barely… wait… pic.twitter.com/QllFzhYRA6— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) June 5, 2019
While fans will no doubt be excited by the colorful Wonder Woman 1984 poster and the first look at Wonder Woman's new costume, Jenkins' tweet seems to reveal new key information. Specifically, it seems Jenkins revealed the first trailer will arrive in December. That would make sense, since the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer could then play in front of all the major holiday releases, ensuring the most possible viewers see it. However, it's also on the late side to start marketing the film. The first trailer for Wonder Woman was released at SDCC 2016 ahead of the film's June 2017 release date. But with Warner Bros. not appearing at SDCC 2019, the studio won't be unveiling the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer in Hall H.
That said, the tone of Jenkins' tweet seems to indicate she can't wait to start promoting Wonder Woman 1984. In fact, Jenkins recently joked she wants the Wonder Woman sequel's 2019 release date back because she can't wait for fans to see the movie. Perhaps Jenkins will surprise fans by releasing the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer this summer - though that seems unlikely. For now, fans will have to make due with this Wonder Woman 1984 poster and they can expect the trailer to arrive later this year.
