Exactly one year before the premiere of Wonder Woman 1984, Gal Gadot has found the rainbow connection. On Twitter today, director Patti Jenkins unveiled the first official poster for the Wonder Woman sequel, and it's easily the most colorful thing in the DC Extended Universe. The image shows Gadot wearing gold armor, on a background of '80s neon colors. It's like the Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper image that never existed, but should have. And fans are eating it up.
The new costume in particular is getting a lot of attention, with movie buffs comparing it to the robot Maria in the silent classic Metropolis, and others recognizing the resemblance to Wonder Woman's "Golden Eagle Armor" in the comics.
I love that Patty Jenkins assumes full control of Wonder Woman and immediately turns up the color and gets rid of the miniskirt. pic.twitter.com/jA7Xd3cJJH— Sarah (@Cinesnark) June 5, 2019
The whole poster is a welcome departure from the DC film universe's usual color palette.

And is it a coincidence that DC dropped a rainbow-colored Wonder Woman poster during Pride Month?

The sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman finds Diana Prince getting pulled into the Cold War during the Reagan Era and going up against a new villain, Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Diana’s Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) also appears in the ’80s-set story, despite seeming to have died in World War I.
Wonder Woman 1984 opens in theaters on June 5, 2020.
