Director Patty Jenkins confirmed at CinemaCon that the sequel to Wonder Woman will be set in the 1980’s. Gal Gadot will be joined in Wonder Woman 2 by Pedro Pascal who is an unconfirmed role. The original Wonder Women Lynda Carter will make a cameo, and the odd casting of Kristen Wiig as Cheetah.
Cheetah in the movie is a perfect (Insert Pun) fit for the time period of the 80’s. Cheetah is known for her wealth, snobbery and cheetah print apparel. If you enjoy 80’s fashion this should be a fun movie. There is speculation that Cheetah will team up with the Russians as this is also during the cold war. Kristen Wiig’s character is known for being a friendly rival to Wonder Woman as well as a straight-up baddie for her as well.
During this time in the comics, Wonder Woman gets back in touch with her Greek mythological heritage and began the journey of becoming a modern day super hero that we love today. Wonder Woman 2 has a political action theme to it. Golden age of Wonder Woman is during this run in the comics.
What do you all think about the casting for the film? Do you love the 80’s as much as I do? LEt us know in the comments below. We love hearing from you.
