While DC Comics is going very light on their live-action showings this year, next year will be a very different story. Shazam! Will kick things off in April, then there’s going to be the solo non-canon Joker story apparently dropping that year as well. But more than that, the one that most people are looking forward to is Wonder Woman ’84, the sequel to one of the best films of 2017. And while it’s still in development, the cast and director were at San Diego Comic-Con and were able to show off a little scene.
Though the footage hasn’t been made fully available, the scene was broken down by those who got to view it. Basically, some armed men tried to take a little girl hostage at a massive mall. Diana was there though, stopped them, saved the girl, and then broke their arms when they tried to fight back. Classic Diana.
Patty Jenkins returns to direct Wonder Woman ’84, and she wanted to make sure what made Diana special in the first film wasn’t lost here:
“The thing that I love the most about Wonder Woman,” director Patty Jenkins said, “is that she is us more than most superheroes. People find themselves in Wonder Woman more than other heroes.”
This footage will no doubt get people excited for a trailer, which to be fair won’t likely arrive until next year, as the film isn’t set to arrive until November 2nd.
