Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot took to social media to announce that principal photography had wrapped on the sequel Wonder Woman 1984. The actress thanked the 1000+ crew, the cast and director Patty Jenkins for giving their best and ensuring a memorable experience as the film’s six-month or so long filming schedule came to a close. She also shared some behind-the-scenes stills from the set which you can view in the emedded post below.
That marks the conclusion of a long shoot indeed, one that began this summer and continued across a multitude of locations. We had numerous set photo leaks, thanks largely due to the crew’s decision to shoot out in the open, which is probably why they didn’t keep Steve Trevor’s return a secret. The cast and crew should be taking a break now, right in time for the Christmas holidays before resuming post-production on the movie which, given it’s delayed June 2020 release date, should provide them ample of time.
In all fairness, while Warner Bros. is thinking from a business standpoint in having the movie release in the summer slot where the original enjoyed a generous reception, it’s going to be quite a long wait before Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters. Presumably, the movie won’t have visual effects as complicated as some of DC’s other ventures like Batman v Superman and Aquaman, which should make a significant portion ready in time for a dramatic showing at San Diego Comic Con. Expect the first trailer to drop at SDCC 2019 and be made available to people online almost immediately.
Let’s hope Warner Bros. doesn’t end up promoting the movie too much like Sony did with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
