Wonder Woman 1984 is taking Diana Prince to the totally rad '80s. In Gal Gadot's first solo outing, Wonder Woman took on World War I. Now, fans will be able to get a glimpse of what Diana Prince was up to almost thirty years before she meets Superman or Batman.
Initially set to release in late 2019, Wonder Woman 1984 was then pushed back to June 2020. Unfortunately, the coronavirus outbreak put the world at a standstill in late March, and the Wonder Woman sequel landed its final release date of October 2, 2020.
Since the film's release is now months away, marketing for WW84 has slowed a bit, with only sparse set photos and character posters to keep fans engaged. As summer marks the beginning of comic con season though, audiences should expect to see a lot more from Diana Prince.
Comic-Con Colombia recently took to Instagram to reveal a vibrant new official Wonder Woman 1984 poster from artist Orlando Arocena.
Arocena later posted a video on Twitter which detailed the process of creating such an impressively designed poster, thanking Comic Con Colombia and Warner Brothers for giving him the opportunity to do so.
Yesterday I had the honor of revealing my official #wonderwoman miniposter thanks to @comicconcol +@LaMoradaCO + @warnerbros! Here's a look of the art created using @Illustrator + #z4 @ZbyHP. Enjoy~ #thisisvector #madeonz https://t.co/qSi49hqrRq pic.twitter.com/MbCD8Jq7II— Orlando Arocena (@OrlandoArocena) June 23, 2020
In the poster, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman can be seen brandishing her metal cuffs, with the iconic Lasso of Truth wrapped around her arms. With only showing one feature of the heroine's face, Arocena is able to fully convey the Amazonian's emotion, determination, and power, a testament to his skills as an artist.
The poster matches the neon color palette of the other WW84 posters already unveiled. It seems that Warner Brothers is really attempting to capitalize on the vibrant style of the '80s, something which will really help differentiate the film from its predecessor and any other film on DC's upcoming slate.
Director Patty Jenkins has stated that the decision to bring Diana Prince to the world of the 1980s came from a desire to "collide our Wonder Woman into the height of our current modern belief system," and "see what happens." This poster fully embodies that clashing nature, and audiences are likely in for a blast of a film.
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to release on October 2, 2020.
