A press release from Warner Bros. officially reveals the title of the Wonder Woman sequel to be Wonder Woman 1984, reflecting the time jump from director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's original film set in 1917.
Gadot, along with Jenkins and Zack Snyder are listed as producers of the DC film, which has begun principal photography.
The release also mentions the previously-announced Kristen Wiig as the main villain Cheetah, along with Chris Pine returning as Steve Trevor and Pedro Pascal in an unspecified role.
Jenkins and Gadot shared images from the film this morning, with Jenkins teasing a resurrected Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and Gadot showing Diana Prince standing in front of a wall of television sets featuring 1984 imagery.
The official press release arrives after the debut early this month of a staticky image that reads “WW84,” teasing the sequel’s actual title. Last month, Warner Bros. purchased numerous website domain names for the sequel, including wonderwoman1984.com, wonderwomanlives.com and wonderwomanreturns.com, igniting fevered speculation about the title.
Directed by Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal, Wonder Woman 1984 is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2019.
