Leaked set videos from Wonder Woman 1984 have teased a massive riot scene. Unsurprisingly, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Chris Pine's Steve Trevor are caught up in the chaos!
The hotly-anticipated Wonder Woman sequel is now in production, and as a result set photos and official images are flooding the Internet. So far, the film's plot is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; although Kristen Wiig is confirmed to be playing Cheetah, she's unlikely to be the movie's main villain. All we have are mysterious rumors, such as a recent one claiming Pedro Pascal is playing a "god in disguise."

As a result, the latest set videos - which clearly show the area on Pennsylvania Avenue between the Navy Memorial and National Archives in downtown Washington, D.C. - are difficult to place in context. They clearly portray some sort of riot scene, and the scale is clear in this first video.
While Gadot and Pine are in this scene, the scale of the riot makes it difficult to spot them. Gadot is far more visible in a second leaked video from the same sequence, though, in which Wonder Woman runs down the street - and demonstrates her remarkable speed.

This clearly demonstrates how much effort Gadot has put into training for this role; that's an impressive turn of speed. It appears that Steve Trevor is injured during this widespread civil disobedience, and Wonder Woman helps him get to safety.
The real question, though, is what could possibly be the cause of these riots? Much has been made of Wonder Woman 1984's Cold War setting, so it's possible these are anti-Cold War protests. But such a riot never actually happened in 1984 in the real world, suggesting the riot is actually connected to the film's main plot instead. Some fans are speculating that another godly being is fostering humanity's rage or fear, as in last year's Wonder Woman, but it seems doubtful that Patty Jenkins would repeat that particular plot.
Whatever the truth may be, the DC movies are expected to take center-stage during the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con next month. In addition to the Aquaman trailer, we're also expecting DC Films to reveal a little more about projects that are currently in production, notably both Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984. So we may not need to wait too long before we're given a little more information about this sequel.
