"Wonder Woman 1984" Is Not A Traditional Sequel

Recommended Posts

DC's Wonder Woman feels like a turning point in the DC cinematic experience. With Batman Vs Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League drawing a largely negative response, many critics and fans felt that Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman was a refreshing change of pace. Though it did fall victim to some of the traditional superhero film-trappings, including a CGI-laden climactic battle against Ares, Gal Gadot's take on the Amazon warrior was generally praised across the board. Therefore, it wasn't surprising to see a sequel announced shortly thereafter, and one cashing in on the eighties-hype at that.

Now, a few more details have emerged about the direction of Wonder Woman 1984, which looks to break from traditional sequel expectations. Speaking with Vulture, producer Charles Roven has revealed the film is not a sequel in the way you might expect - in fact, Patty Jenkins has been adamant in her refusal to label it a "sequel" to begin with.

“She was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel,” Roven explains. “And she’s definitely delivering on that. It’s a completely different time frame and you’ll get a sense of what Diana-slash–Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But it’s a completely different story that we’re telling. Even though it’ll have a lot of the same emotional things, a lot of humor, a lot of brave action. Tugs at the heart strings as well.”

To expand on the narrative, a Vulture source also likened the upcoming film to Indiana Jones and James Bond: "It’s a stand-alone film in the same way that Indiana Jones or Bond films are, instead of one continuous story that requires many installments.” Look for the new Wonder Woman flick, which not a sequel mind you, to drop on November 1, 2019. The film also stars Kristen Wiig and a returning Chris Pine.

    • Excision is back! After a year off, the producer will make his epic return to Shambhala Music Festival with an earth-shattering bass performance at The Village stage.
      Until last year, Excision was one of those mainstay names that fans had come to expect on Shambhala’s exclusively electronic/dance lineup. He was noticeably absent in 2018, which gives this 2019 headliner announce an extra boost of excitement.
      “Shambhala is where it all started for me, stoked to be back!” Excision says in a press release.
      This will be Excision’s 11th time playing the festival. He joins previously announced headliners: TroyBoi, Chase & Status, ZHU and GRiZ. So far, Shambhala is shaping up to be as solid as ever.
      Shambhala Music Festival will methodically roll out the rest of its lineup in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
      In the meantime, throw your X up for this headliner!

    • What music site could be without a "What are you listening to" thread? So, I will start:
      Tom Petty - Learning To Fly
      "Learning To Fly" was written in 1991 by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne for the album Into The Great Wide Open. It was featured on the soundtrack of the 2005 film Elizabethtown, directed by Cameron Crowe.

    • Drake & A$AP Rocky's Worlds Collide In "Splashiest" Photo
      Drake is in the middle of his joint tour overseas with Tory Lanez but that isn't stopping him from catching up with some old friends. The duo of Canadians has had some bad luck in Amsterdam, having to reschedule a couple of shows until later in the year. They're still creating memories on every stop that they end up performing at, though. When Drizzy isn't on the phone with his son Adonis or on stage for the Assassination Vacation tour, he's either in the studio or chilling with his crew. The 6ix God made sure to let people know that he and A$AP Rocky ran into each other, posting a set of photos from this week.

      In the first slide, Rocky stands next to Drake in his pink babushka. It's clear that he's still trying to popularize the style, rocking with the look for a few months now. A couple of other shots were added to the recap with shout-outs to Drake's whiskey brand and the Lejonhjerta twins. 
      Drake recently spoke as part of Mustafa The Poet's new short film, giving personal details about gun violence in his hometown of Toronto. He recently debuted a new tattoo on his forearm, inking a portrait of his firstborn son so he can see Adonis everywhere he goes.
