Wonder Woman was a smash success at the box office. DC wanting to capitalize on the success of the film quickly greenlit a sequel that was soon named Wonder Woman 1984. The movie was due for release in June of 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic pushed that release date back. Instead, Warner Media decided to make this the flagship of it’s new policy of releasing films straight to the HBO Max streaming service and theaters at the same time.
In this episode we talk about Wonder Woman 1984. We compare it to its predecessor. We discuss the new and returning characters and how they’re portrayed in the film. We talk about the writing and discuss what we think went wrong and what worked in the movie. We also talk about the importance of this movie in pop culture and how think the perception of this sequel will effect things moving forward. Finally, we do talk about the post credits scene and discuss what we want to see out of a third film.
Due to the size of our cast this week, there won’t be a five-minute controversy.
