It’s Not A Sequel!
Here’s all you need to know about the film.
Why Isn’t Wonder Woman 1984 A Sequel?
Chris Roven said, “It’s a completely different time frame, and you’ll get a sense of what Diana-slash–Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But it’s a completely different story that we’re telling. Even though it’ll have a lot of the same emotional things, a lot of humour, a lot of brave action. Tugs at the heartstrings as well.”
Cast: Who All Will Be Featured In Wonder Woman 1984?
During a panel at CCXP, Patty Jenkins revealed the team aimed to show Cheetah’s mutation “practically”. If you’re wondering what that means, she added they “[got] to a place where you end up having to go a little further, and so, it’s got a little help, but a lot of it is authentic.”
Jenkins also revealed why she cast Wiig, saying: “We were super fans of Kristen, and we love how funny she is, but also I’ve been a huge admirer of what a great actress she is for a long time. So when we needed someone to go all the way from one end of the spectrum of being funny, sweet Diana’s friend, all the way to a different place, we knew that Kristen Wiig would kill it, and she went beyond our wildest dreams.”
Other casts are Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Kristoffer Polaha, and child actress Oakley Bull.
Reason For The Delay
Film producer Charles Roven said:
“We always wanted the date that we are on right now. The studio felt that until their slate for the year before came together—and they had a fantastic end of 2018—that they needed to have a big what I call aircraft carrier, a ‘tentpole’, in .
We had a very rushed pre-production because Patty also did the TNT show and we had a very rushed post-production schedule to make the date that we were on, which was November 1, 2019.
We were doing it because the studio said they needed it, and then at a certain point they came to us, and they said, ‘You know what, you guys are right. Let’s go back to the month that you guys released Wonder Woman 1 in, and take the extra time.”
