The long-awaited first Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is all set to premiere this weekend at CCXP in Brazil. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot will be on hand to personally premiere the trailer at the event this Sunday (December 8th). As for what will be shown in the trailer, that is unclear at the moment, but DC fans have been waiting to get the first official peek at Kristen Wiig as Cheetah. We were teased with the look on some official merchandise for the movie, but some footage would be the best way to introduce the villain.
Wonder Woman 1984 is one of the most-anticipated movies of 2020 and it's been in the works for quite a while now. The sequel was supposed to hit theaters last month, but the studio decided to push the Wonder Woman 2 release date to June 2020 for a prime summer box office date. With that being said, now is the perfect time to see the first official trailer for the movie. Gal Gadot had this to say about this weekend's festivities.
"I wish I could be in the UK to share the brand new trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 with you in person... but please join Patty Jenkins and me in São Paulo, Brazil via Wonder Woman Film on Twitter this Sunday to watch it live!"
It is believed that the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer will be available online shortly after the CCXP debut. That has yet to be officially confirmed by Warner Bros. as of this writing. It isn't clear when the trailer will drop, but it should be in the early afternoon in North America. Fans have been treated to various bits of footage at events over the past year, but this could be the first time that a trailer has been shown publicly. CCXP is already off to a good start, and we got a first look at Kristen Wiig as Cheetah direct from the showroom floor, courtesy of a coffee mug.
Patty Jenkins has been hard at work on Wonder Woman 1984 since 2018. While fans were bummed to see the release date switch, it gave the director some time to exhale and spend some extra time crafting the storyline and getting everything just right. As for the year 1984, Jenkins doesn't go into too much detail, but she does say it ties into history at that time. The early 80s was a time of excess before everything came crashing down and it draws parallels to our world today.
Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins were prepared to share some Wonder Woman 1984 footage at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but Warner Bros. decided to sit this year out, so they were not able to deliver the goods at that time. When the studio made the announcement, which was in June, Jenkins revealed that December would be the official start date for promotion on the sequel. Thankfully, we're only a few days away from the first official footage dropping. You can check out the trailer announcement for Wonder Woman 1984 below, thanks to the Fandom Twitter account.
