'Wonder Woman 1984' trailer takes on the Reagan era

After defeating Ares — the god of war himself — during World War I, you'd think Wonder Woman's job would be complete but luckily for us, mankind still needs a hero.

This time, it's 1984 and the Cold War — and big hair — is at full max.

(Did you catch my Maxwell Lord pun there? No? Okay, let's jump to the trailer.)


Wonder Woman 1984 – Official Trailer

The flawless Gal Gadot, a military veteran herself, returns as Diana of Themyscira, a warrior empowered by love. Wonder Woman 1984, directed by Patty Jenkins (the woman who helmed the highly successful 2017 film), also brings back Chris Pine's Steve Trevor (who has been presumed dead since 1918).

This trailer also introduces Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal as classic DC villains Cheetah and Maxwell Lord respectively.

Set to a remix of New Order's Blue Monday, the trailer gives us mystery, 80s glam, and plenty of badass Diana.

"Nothing good is born from lies and greatness is not what you think," declares Diana, probably to Lord, a power-hungry businessman known for tampering with questionable technologies and powers.

He should probably listen to her because that lasso doesn't just force people to tell the truth — it can literally Spider-Man her across lightning.

Looks like she's also upgraded her armor. I can already see the cosplayers gathering up their gold...

The long-awaited trailer premiered at Brazil's Comic Con Experience and the film will hit theaters June 5, 2020.
