The Wonder Woman will return to save the day. But it's going to be a longer wait than we thought.

The sequel to director Patty Jenkins & # 39; The acclaimed superhero movie "Wonder Woman" will now premiere in 2020, Warner Bros. announced Monday. Here is everything else we know so far about "Wonder Woman 2".

1. The film opens in summer, "it's your legitimate home".

This is how the star Gal Gadot published the news that the next "Wonder Woman" will move to June 5, 2020, the third announced release date of the film. The sequel had been previously scheduled for November 1, 2019, and before that, on December 13, 2019.

2. The sequel is called "Wonder Woman 1984" and takes place in the same year.

In Comic-Con, Jenkins showed a video of Diana de Gadot in which she confronted the bad guys and saved the kids in a retro mall.

"When you immerse yourself in these times, as metaphors really symbolize things that are always true," he said, adding that the follow-up was established in the 1980s "because it was really humanity at its best and worst moment. Prices of some of our behaviors today, but we were not in the 80s, we were at the top. "

3. Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) returns, despite his apparent death in the last film.

Apparently, Steve Trevor, American pilot and Diana's love interest for the film, died in "Wonder Woman". However, the character is back in "Wonder Woman 1984", set almost 70 years after the first film, and it seems he has not aged a day.

Pine did not say anything in Comic-Con, avoiding the spoilers of the film as to why his character appears: "Actually I'm not here right now, I'm an aura of emotional support for my friends."

Trevor is a particularly significant character for Jenkins. The filmmaker said at a Women in Entertainment summit last November that reminds him of his father, "an American fighter pilot who, after the Vietnam War, was expelled from the armed forces and, coincidentally, like Steve He flew to Europe, an allied battle where Russia played, he died in a plane crash. "

4. Kristen Wiig is the villain Cheetah.

An early look at Wiig in the film shows her surrounded by taxidermy in what appears to be a natural history museum. Let's make a wild guess and assume that Wiig's character, Barbara Minerva, is watching a cheetah.

Cheetah is the alter ego of Minerva, who possesses superhuman strength and agility.

5. General Antiope (Robin Wright) will return, in flashbacks.

Wright confirmed in a Net-a-Porter interview that his favorite leader of Amazon fans will be part of "Wonder Woman 1984": he filmed a flashback sequence with Connie Nielsen's queen Hippolyta. Antiope, Diana's aunt and Hippolyta's sister, sacrificed to save Diana in "Wonder Woman."
