But things seem to be finally looking good for those who cannot wait to see Gal Gadot bring back her character Diana Prince, also known as Wonder Woman, in the cinemas.

Wonder Woman 1984 is the much-awaited sequel of “Wonder Woman,” released in 2017.

The character was introduced to the world through the pages of “All Star Comics #8” back in October 1941…

Since then, superhero fans have started to adore her.

Earlier fans can recall seeing her on TV for the first time in a made-for-TV film “Wonder Woman” in 1974. Cathy Lee Crosby portrayed her during that time. Then Lynda Carter took over the role for a TV series titled “The New Adventures of Wonder Woman,” which aired between 1975 to 1979.

However, the character only made the big-screen debut in 2017.

Gal Gadot earned raves when she portrayed the legendary role…

In the film, the audience saw Wonder Woman during a period in her life when she had to undergo training as an Amazonian woman on her obscure island called Themyscira. But she had to leave her home and her mother, Queen Hippolyte, to fight a war.

The decision of Warner Bros. to make a standalone movie for Wonder Woman seemed to pay off.

It received massive success at the box office, earning a jaw-dropping $821.8 million worldwide.

Because of that success, the film outfit commissioned a sequel to continue the story of Diana Prince and her journey as Wonder Woman…

As soon as the announcement arrived, the fans cannot contain their excitement.
