Today Hall H at Comic-Con International (which takes place in San Diego, CA) was booming with DCEU news like the debut of the first trailers for Aquaman and Shazam!. Of course, one of the most anticipated films form DC Entertainment is the next chapter in the Wonder Woman film franchise. According to actress Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman 1984 isn’t a sequel to the blockbuster hit, Wonder Woman. Director Patty Jenkins explained that this is a standalone story due to her desire to not just “keep it going.” Jenkins continued that she’s making a different sort of film to Wonder Woman and that it’s not “more of anything” and is its own thing.
Fans in attendance at the panel were treated to some footage from WW84 which has made its way online yet. However, you can read the full description of it here:
In it, we see Wonder Woman in a mall in her full outfit — which looks brighter than when we last saw it. There are a couple of lowly thugs. There is a little girl who is like “whoa,” and Wonder Woman tosses her aside to safety against a giant Teddy bear. She lassos the bad guys, jumps over the balcony, pulling them as she descends to another floor. We then cut to the logo for WW84.
We are then treated to a shot of Wonder Woman running through the streets incredibly fast. It’s very clear this is still rough footage, as it looks kind of awkward, with her almost flying illogically. Still, the spirit of the footage is fun, and ironically, seemingly a bit sillier and goofy than perhaps we’d expect (at least that’s the impression I got with how cartoony the bad guys were).
