A new logo for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ has been unveiled at the Licensing Expo 2019 in Las Vegas. The new logo actually resembles a glitzy sign on the Vegas strip, so that’s fitting. Of course, the real eye-catcher is Gal Gadot in the center. Her costume doesn’t look entirely different than the ones seen in previous pictures– ‘Batman V Superman’, ‘Justice League’, and ‘Wonder Woman’– but at least in this image, it looks a little shinier, and a bit closer to the outfit worn by Lynda Carter in the classic ’70s ‘Wonder Woman’ series.

Here are some other insights into ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ and what makes it unique.
Director Patty Jenkins previously stated:
“You know what was cool? We’re treating the era differently than I’ve seen so far, which I feel like there have a lot of interesting versions of doing the era. In our version, as a child of the ‘8os myself, yes there was funny, ha-ha outfits I can’t believe I wore, for sure.”
“It’s not a sequel, it’s its own story. Its own chapter, a whole new movie. The bar is very high, but our aspirations are even higher. so we just give it everything that we have and hoping what we bring you guys will love.”
Producer Charles Roven compared ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ to some cinematic heavyweights:
“She was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel. 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 heartstrings as well. 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.”
Basically, it sounds like ‘The Further Adventures of Wonder Woman’, which is totally fine. There may have been some dangling threads from previous movies– after all, ‘Justice League’ was supposed to kick off its own franchise. But it’s clear that Warner Brothers is cutting ties with the past and looking to the future. Well, relatively speaking. It is set in 1984 after all.
