Wonder Woman 1984 unleashes its first poster

Having fought her way through the battlefields of World War I, Diana Prince faces a very different kind of landscape in Wonder Woman 1984.

The superhero sequel reunites us with Gal Gadot's eponymous Themysciran warrior – only this time she's adapting to the era of MTV and big hair. Director Patty Jenkins is back behind the camera, having delivered a critical and commercial hit with the 2017 Wonder Woman movie, and here's your first look at the sequel's arresting poster. As you can see, the background's gone full Cyndi Lauper while our title character sports her traditional golden armour – a contradictory blend that surely promises great things from the movie itself.

The story this time pits DC superhero Wonder Woman against the villainous Cheetah, played, in what's sure to be an intriguing change of pace, by Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig. Somewhat mysteriously, Chris Pine's Steve Trevor, who sacrificed himself at the end of the first movie, is also back. Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal is a significant new face (albeit unnamed at this stage), while Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen are back as Themysciran figureheads Antiope and Hippolyta.

Many key Wonder Woman creatives return for the sequel, including cinematographer Matthew Jensen who did a terrific job contrasting the gilded, glimmering Themyscira with the scorched-earth environment of the Somme.

Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amélie), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (Topsy-Turvy) also return to put their mark on the sequel. However, composer Rupert Gregson-Williams is being replaced by DC veteran Hans Zimmer, who has scored Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Wonder Woman 1984 is released in June 2020, so tweet us @Cineworld with your thoughts.
