The main cast of Wonder Woman 1984 alongside director Patty Jenkins gather together for an adorable group photo. Marking the second solo adventure of the Amazonian Goddess, Gal Gadot reprises the famed DC hero on the big screen as she finds herself in the 1980s at the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, which was first reported by Screen Rant last year. Chris Pine is also set to return as Steve Trevor in the much-anticipated sequel.
Details with regard to the follow-up’s narrative are still scarce at the moment, but the movie’s casting sheet is slowly filling up with the addition of Kristen Wiig, who will play Barbara Minerva/Cheetah in the movie, and Narcos’ Pedro Pascal in a yet to be revealed role. Insecure‘s Natasha Rothwell also boarded the project, as well as Ravi Patel and Gabriella Wilde.
In a now-deleted Instagram photo uploaded by Pascal comes a cast photo for Wonder Woman 1984 with Jenkins. The image features Wiig, Gadot (who is wearing Diana’s head peace, although sporting casual clothes), Pine, Pascal, and the film’s director, Jenkins. Check out the image below:
Although not in their costumes (except for Pascal, who’s wearing a formal ensemble, a similar style he was sporting in his official character reveal image), this is the first time that the public has seen the main cast of Wonder Woman 1984 together in a photo. Jenkins has been releasing separate looks on the actors since principal photography for the film started in June which has given fans a sneak peek on what the sequel would look like. She, Gadot, and Pine also debuted a short teaser trailer at Comic-Con, and, while the footage was exclusively shown to Hall H attendees, description of the clip quickly made its way online revealing a brighter suit for Diana. Further, several set photos have also emerged online hinting at what could possibly go down in the film.
Fans have quickly pointed out that the image has a striking resemblance to the iconic Breakfast Club group poster. It can be remembered that the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming recreated the same one-sheet back in 2017, although, like Wonder Woman 1984‘s take, it wasn’t an official marketing material as well. But, while the idea to mimic the promotional image from the John Hughes classic made sense for the MCU standalone considering that it mined inspiration from several of the filmmakers’ work, it’s curious to know if there’s any narrative correlation between Wonder Woman 1984 and the 1985 coming-of-age movie. Gadot previously said the first Wonder Woman was Diana’s coming-of-age story, and it was, to some degree. Of course, it’s also possible that the photo is nothing more but a fun ’80s reference and there’s no relation whatsoever between the Breakfast Club and the superhero sequel.
With Wonder Woman 1984 still more than a year away, not to mention three other Warner Bros. superhero movies on the docket (Aquaman, Shazam!, and Joker), before it hit theaters, it’s safe to say that it’ll be quite a while before a full trailer rolls out. But if this photo is any indication, it seems like the cast is having a blast working on the project, which is never a bad thing.
