Speculation about the sequel to director Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman sequel has heated up again with the release of a cryptic, staticky image that reads "WW84."
Jenkins and Geoff Johns, president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, updated their social media accounts with the image this afternoon. Johns is also collaborating with Jenkins and Dave Callaham on the film's screenplay.
Reminiscent of a low-quality screen capture from an aging VHS tape, the image reads only "WW84," accompanied by trademark and copyright indicia for DC Comics and WBEI (Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.).
The image arrives on the heels of the studio's purchase of numerous domain names, among them wonderwoman1984.com, as well as others for each year in the decade, wonderwomanlives.com and wonderwomanreturns.com. Of course, we've known for some time that Wonder Woman 2 will move forward in time from the World War I setting of the 2017 original, with Gal Gadot's Diana active in the 1980s. However, this teaser may pinpoint the precise year.
Whether "Wonder Woman 84" is actually the name of the film remains to be seen. It's certainly also possible "WW84" refers to a tie-in to the sequel, such as a video game, although that seems unlikely.
Directed by Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman 2 is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2019.
