The "Wonder Woman" sequel is officially titled "Wonder Woman 1984", a nod to the film's new period setting.

Gal Gadot, who plays the franchise's title superhero, swung by Twitter Wednesday and posted a snap of herself as Wonder Woman staring at a set of 12 TV monitors.

While the rest of the DCEU is in something of a state of flux with talks of Ben Affleck exiting his Batman role, the success of 2017's Wonder Woman made a sequel all-but guaranteed. I'm not quite sure if we're dealing with time travel or what here, and I'm a bit wary of undoing what was such an emotional plot development in the first Wonder Woman, but I do trust the storytelling instincts of Jenkins inherently so I'm still all in.

Besides, Steve frickin' Trevor is back, back, back, and while his welcome return may defy logic, there's no denying Chris Pine's chemistry with Gadot.

Jenkins, together with Gal Gadot, dropped the first images from Wonder Woman 2 today which promptly starts production in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, VA, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.

But according to a tweet that Jenkins sent out this morning.Trevor looks to be fine - albeit as confused as we are - in 1984.

The director has also confirmed Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) will be playing Wonder Woman's nemesis Cheetah in the sequel. Where did he get that tracksuit and how is it the most toned-down thing happening in this neon '80s dreamscape? Johns is credited as a co-writer on Wonder Woman 1984.
