Wonder Woman Lassos Freaking Lightening In This New “Wonder Woman 1984” Trailer

© Warner Bros/ DC Entertainment

For so long the thought of a new DC live-action film seemed like a threat, rather than something to look forward to. Fast forward to the past 12 months and it feels like a whole new ball game. Both Aquaman and Shazam have embraced a goofy and colorful aesthetic that you could say has turned DC on its head, if it didn’t feel so much like a 180. Or had Wonder Woman not already been a shining beacon, a few years back. The difference this time, is that people are not only ready for more, but they’re wanting something to scratch their “Saturday morning cartoon sugar rush” of an itch. This trailer for Wonder Woman 84 knows exactly what you crave.

Watch this immediately, but with sunglasses. You don’t want to get burned by how brightly joyful it is.

Ok. Wow. Ok. Wow. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) can lasso and swing on lightning bolts now. That’s a thing that exists in the world. And it is glorious. Almost as glorious? A possibly very much not-dead Steve Trevor (Chris Pine, 2nd best of the Chrises) rocking a fanny Pack. It takes a great deal of confidence to showcase these two things within a span of 2 minutes. Which is to say, director Patty Jenkins is not someone to second guess.

Should you need an official synopsis to peruse, we’re happy to oblige:

“Fast forward to the 1980’s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.”

Well, that would be underwhelming, if the footage that went along with it wasn’t so stunning. Really. That trailer is chock-full of goodness. At the same time they’re hiding a lot when it comes to Kristen Wiig’s variation of The Cheetah. Whereas Pedro Pascal’s Max Lord is totally looking like his comic counterpart. Also, you never turn down seeing Pascal’s devilish grin (something holding The Mandalorian back. Maybe. Kinda. Not Really).

Are you sold on what Wonder Woman 1984 is selling? Be honest, otherwise we’ll have to use the lasso of truth on you! Any cameos you’d like to see? The comments are yours to speculate wildly in. Personally? This looks like a lot of fun and exactly what you’d hope a Wonder Woman continuation would be!

Mark your calendars & adjust your golden bracelets accordingly, for when Wonder Woman 1984 thunders into theaters on June 5, 2020.
