Wonder Woman 1984 might have been delayed (again), but here’s just the thing to tide you over while you wait for the October release of Diana Prince’s next adventure...
In the ’80s-set sequel, Wonders reunites with Steve Trevor and has to face off two new enemies – Cheetah and Max Lord. This time, Steve is the fish out of water this time, having mysteriously returned to join Diana in the decade of excess (after seemingly perishing in an explosion during World War 1).
Inside the new issue of Total Film magazine, stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal and director Patty Jenkins, talk about their approach to a sequel that won’t feel like your standard follow-up. Plus, the stars’ favourite ’80s movies, and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming explains all about Wonder Woman’s new Golden Armour.
On shelves (real and digital) from June 26, the new issue also features Mulan, The Old Guard, Mark Rylance, a 30th anniversary retrospective of Ghost, and plenty more besides. And as it’s the landmark 300th issue, TF counts down the greatest films of its lifetime.
