The DC movie universe has seen some success recently with the release of Joker which grossed over a billion dollars. Many more movies are coming soon and the list includes James Gunn’s Suicide Squad reboot and Birds of Prey.
Warner Bros is also developing a spin-off featuring Amazons of Themyscira to boost the Wonder Woman franchise further.
Recently Warner Bros. released a fantastic first official trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 and fans went crazy over the trailer as soon as it was unveiled.
But one tidbit of information was overshadowed by the hype surrounding the sequel to the 2017 movie. It would appear that Warner Bros is developing a spin-off based on Amazons of Themyscira to boost the successful franchise further. Brazilian journalist M.P. Morales reported that Jenkins herself confirmed the existence of the movie, but noted that she wouldn’t help the project.
Sim @PattyJenks confirmou que a WB desenvolve um filme focado nas Amazonas!— @mpmorales (@mpmorales) December 8, 2019
Ela não irá dirigir, mas trabalhará na produção executiva! Sem maiores detalhes. #MulherMaravilha1984 https://t.co/8Dv9be8llB
“Yes, @PattyJenks confirmed that WB develops a movie focused on the Amazon! She will not drive, but will work in executive production! No further details.”English Translation
There are no further details about the spin-off but expect Warner Bros to explore characters around Diana Prince. Mythology could be an essential part of the upcoming films. Wonder Woman was the saviour of the sinking DC movie universe and prevented an untimely and premature end. It’s not surprising to see Warner Bros. investing in Wonder Woman further.
Wonder Woman, 1984
Release date: June 5, 2020
Status: 1st trailer out.
Gal Gadot is returning to play Wonder Woman in the movie Wonder Woman 1984. Patty Jenkins is directing the movie, and the official synopsis of the film is out. Wonder woman finds herself in conflict with the Soviet Union during the cold war in the 1980s and her archnemesis’ Cheetah.
Cheetah is one of the most formidable foes of Wonder Woman in the comics and it will be exciting to see two fierce female characters on the big screen. Kristen Wiig will be playing the Cheetah and Chris Pine is returning as Steve Trevor. The success of the Wonder Woman movie and the impressive directorial work of Patty Jenkins turned the fate of DCEU to the point where expectations are now high.
