Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in the upcoming sequel called Wonder Woman 1984, has recently given fans a sneak peek into the film’s storyline. Although the release date is not until next year, fans are already excited about the Amazonian warrior’s modern transformation. In a colorful teaser shared on her Instagram account, the Israeli actress showcases the iconic character’s readiness to take on any challenge.
Gal Gadot recently shared the new armor for Wonder Woman 1984 on her Instagram account. The photo, also posted by director Patty Jenkins, showed Diana wearing a suit with raised metal bridges that perfectly molded to her body. She was also seen wearing patterned leggings and leg armor. Fans of the comic book series may recognize this as the ‘Golden Eagle’ outfit that Wonder Woman has worn before.
The upgraded outfit of Wonder Woman is battle-ready and sleeker compared to her previous costume that showed her fighting in the World War I era.
A modern twist on a timeless look: In the initial Patty Jenkins movie, Wonder Woman’s outfit was simply breathtaking. The heroine donned a strapless leotard with a geometric design that was reminiscent of gladiator attire, complete with a short skirt, thigh-high boots, and her iconic gauntlets and tiara.
The new Wonder Woman suit is a notable departure from the original costume that showcased the character during World War I. The previous outfit was a striking ensemble consisting of a strapless, geometric leotard inspired by gladiator attire. The getup boasted short sleeves, thigh-high boots, and the iconic gauntlets and tiara that symbolized the heroine. Over the years, Wonder Woman has undergone several changes to her look since she first appeared on-screen in the 1974 made-for-TV movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby. The character also went on to feature in Super Friends, an animated show produced by Hanna-Barbera that enjoyed a long run.
The iconic appearance of Wonder Woman is attributed to Lynda Carter’s portrayal of the character during the television series that aired from 1975 to 1979. It is a look that is easily recognizable by fans of the Amazonian superhero.
The iconic superheroine, Wonder Woman, has undergone several transformations since she first graced the screen in the 70s. The 1974 made-for-TV movie saw Cathy Lee Crosby in the lead role. However, it was Lynda Carter’s portrayal of the Amazonian from 1975 to 1979 that cemented her as the most recognizable version of the character. She donned star-spangled hot pants and a red and gold eagle-emblazoned bustier. The upcoming sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, takes place after her adventures during World War I and introduces new villains for Diana to battle. Last summer, Kristin Wiig was announced as the latest enemy for WW to face.
Last summer, it was revealed that Kristen Wiig would be playing the role of Cheetah, the latest villain to go up against Wonder Woman. Cheetah, also known as Barbara Minerva, is a formidable foe with incredible reflexes and agility. Although Wonder Woman already has a dedicated fanbase and raked in an impressive $412 million domestically during its 2017 release, the upcoming 80s-centric follow-up will not be a typical sequel. In fact, director Patty Jenkins has rejected the term altogether, insisting that the film is “the next iteration of Wonder Woman.” Fans excited for the new movie will have to wait until June 5, 2020.
