Wonder Woman 1984 plot
Wonder Woman 1984 is the next iteration of Wonder Woman. The story will take place in the U.S. and will feature the historical adventure of Diana Prince going up against the forces of the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
Moreover, Diana, along with Steve Trevor, will go against the villains Maxwell Lord and Cheetah. However, it is uncertain how exactly they came to blows with the antagonists or how Steve miraculously returned.
Anticipation is certainly high for the film, and the director has promised some pretty remarkable scenes that could even rival Wonder Woman’s best sequence, No Man’s Land. Jenkins told Variety:
“I have a scene that is in this movie that is totally different, but it’s my No Man’s Land scene, where it is that there’s one scene that I am so excited about.”
