Wonder Woman 1984: the director explains the year in the title
The continuation of the story of Diana Prince is one of the films most anticipated by the fans, not only DC Comics because of the movie of origin for a superhero to have earned more than for the moment. Its output, however, has been postponed to 5 June 2020, and then the fans are looking for news to satisfy their curiosity.
The film has finished production in December 2018 and will see Diana of Themyscira against the villain the Cheetah (Kristen Wiig), an archeologist named Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva day and a hunter with superhuman abilities to the night. Chris Pine will reprise his role as Steve Trevor, even if one wonders how it will be justified for his return. It seems the character of Pedro Pascal, Maxwell, might have a crucial role in this.
But now we discovered a new detail: the year mentioned in the title, 1984, also has significance for the plot. During an interview at the podcast of the Deadline Crew Call, in fact, the director Patty Jenkins has explained that “the 1984 is certainly a very evocative and important to the film,” adding that he thinks that “there has been the pinnacle of success in the ’80s”. The director continued by explaining that there is “something about the excess of that period of time, which is so tied to where we are in the world at this time, which is set there for a reason”.
As is apparent from the first Wonder Woman, Jenkins makes the setting a character in his movies: just think of the scene that he saw Diana running through the bombs and the fire of the guns, the scene that has accentuated the atmosphere horrible the first world war, turning the war itself in another villain that has played a key role in the narrative of the film. It is likely that Jenkins will take a similar decision, and will involve the atmosphere, the excessive and the extreme of the years ’80 as the central character of the plot.
Wonder Woman and its director have set a new standard for the industry and will surely do so in the next movie. We just have to see how...
