Wonder Woman 1984

2020 American superhero film directed by Patty Jenkins

Wonder Woman 1984 (also known as WW84) is a 2020 American superhero film based on the DC Comics character Wonder Woman. Produced by Atlas Entertainment and The Stone Quarry, and distributed by Warner Bros., it is the sequel to 2017's Wonder Woman and the ninth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Jenkins, Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham from a story by Johns and Jenkins, it stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, alongside Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen. Set in 1984 during the Cold War, the film follows Diana and her past love Steve Trevor as they face off against Maxwell Lord and Cheetah.

Discussion of a sequel began shortly after the release of the first film in June 2017 and the decision to proceed was confirmed the following month. Principal photography began on June 13, 2018, with filming taking place at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden in England, as well as the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia in the U.S., London and Duxford in England, Tenerife and Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands and Almería in Andalusia, Spain. Production wrapped on December 22, 2018, after a six-month shoot, with additional filming in July 2019.

Wonder Woman 1984 was originally scheduled for a wide theatrical release on June 5, 2020, but was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film premiered on December 15, 2020, via the DC FanDome virtual platform, and was released by Warner Bros. on December 25, 2020, both theatrically and via the HBO Max streaming service. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised its depiction of the 1980s, escapist qualities, and Jenkins's direction but criticized the plot and screenplay. The film grossed $166 million worldwide against a production budget of $200 million, failing to break even due to limited theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic but became the most-watched straight-to-streaming film of 2020. Two follow-ups are in development: a sequel with Jenkins and Gadot returning and a spin-off produced by Jenkins focusing on the Amazons of Themyscira.
