Gal Gadot’s character, Wonder Woman, which is all set to come to screen for the third time, is under controversies even before the trailer’s release.
By now everyone knows that the Amazonian superhero is coming back to the screen with Gal Gadot in ‘Wonder Woman 1984’. With the first Wonder Woman movie, Gal Gadot left all DC fans mesmerized with her action-packed performance.
So, no wonder talks about Wonder Woman 2 initiated not long after the release of the first movie. Since then, the producers and directors have been dropping constant hints and Easter Eggs for the ever-enthusiastic fans. (Have you found any yet?)
In fact, one of the Easter Eggs leads straight to speculation that Gal Gadot might lose all her powers in Wonder Woman 1984.
Let’s dive straight into the world of Amazon!
Patty Jenkins- the true Wonder Woman
After successfully directing the first installment of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins is proving to be the true Wonder Woman as she bagged the director role for the second one too. She was initially only signed for one movie but soon started showing interest in a sequel.
As Gal Gadot comes back with Wonder woman 1984, she would be facing a new supervillain: Cheetah aka Barbara Minerva. And we already have a face to put on debut villain: Kristen Wiig.
Everyone is pretty curious about how she would look like (or how the production is going to dress her up as the famous Wonder Woman villain). But fans are also very curious to see how she nails the amazing one-liners of her character, “My plans for you are a bit more purrmanent.” For those of you who are unfamiliar with Cheetah, this super villain specializes in many powers: super speed, cat-like agility, and super strength among others.
Princess in White
Gal Gadot’s birthday gifted DC fans a theory for the upcoming movie Wonder Woman 1984. While it is common knowledge now that the movie will be set in the 80s, nothing else is known. With so much space for speculation, theories are bound to be formed. Director Patty Jenkins shared an image of the actress from Wonder Woman 2 on Twitter. Along with it was a message for her birthday.
But what was really interesting was the fact that the classic Wonder Woman look clad in blue, red and gold was replaced by an all-white Diana Prince.
Will Diana Prince lose her powers?
So, is there a hidden message that Patty Jenkins is trying to send out to die-hard fans of DC? Yes, we believe so. The all-white ensemble might just point to something really big. The only time Diana Prince took to white was during the controversial era of the comic in the late 1960s. At that time, Diana lost all her powers and became a martial artist for many years.
So, is the choice of her costume telling us that the 80s Diana might lose her Amazonian powers?
Keep calm because Chris Pine is back! But, how?
With the first official images, it was confirmed that everyone’s favourite character, Steve Trevor, will also be cast in the film. Apart from this, the snaps also confirm that Gal Gadot will be seen in an 80s setup in Wonder Woman 1984.
If Steve Trevor did not make it to the end of the first movie, how is it that he will be seen in this one? Well, we do have a speculated explanation for this. And it is all thanks to a villain! Pedro Pascal features in Wonder Woman 1984 in an unnamed role. And fans suspect that he is actually playing the role of a meta-human Maxwell Lord. Can you guess what is his superpower? Mind Control! Well, if it is all true, it gives a very sturdy explanation as to why Diana Prince can see Steve Trevor.
Love and Pride
As Gal Gadot is gearing up for her role in wonder woman 1984, the poster has left fans mesmerized. The poster features Gal Gadot in a golden armour suit. With the shining armour in the center, the background is filled with all sorts of colours.
While speculations are low, but will we see the superhero’s true sexuality in Wonder Woman 2? The cinematic universes have long been speculated of hiding the true nature of their superheroes. So, with this installment, will they come out?
Did we miss anything? Are there any Easter Eggs in the Gal Gadot upcoming movie Wonder Woman 1984 that you know about? Share them with us. Until then, we can only patiently wait till June 5, 2020 (too much patience required indeed!)
