"Wonder Woman 2" Now Has An Official Title | Tanya Rad

Wonder Woman 1984 is the official title for the sequel and it comes with some pretty serious historical baggage that is just as true today as it was back when George Orwell wrote his book. Luckily, the time period here more or less assures us that'll be the case. It reinforces the film's setting - it had already been revealed before - which represents a more than 60-year jump from its predecessor, which was set during the end of World War I. While the "Wonder Woman" TV show did cover the Amazon goddess' actions during that war, the new movie will take place during the Cold War.

Even if Trevor was in his early 20s in the first film, he would be in his 80s in the sequel. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, it's not the literal boot that is the scariest tool of Oceania's totalitarian control; it's the total erosion of independent thought. Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think!

We've gotten a look at Gal Gadot, who will be reprising her role as Diana Prince, looking thoughtfully at (OK, she's really just standing in front of) a bunch of television screens in a window. This particular scene could also be a snippet of a dream that Wonder Woman will have in the film.

One of the images is quite a doozy.

It was also a cool, if slightly camp film, pitting the semi-divine Amazonian warrior Diana against the best baddies of all: poison Nazis (basically).

Seventy years later after its publiciation, George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and its parallels to our own reality are insidiously still here. We'll definitely have to say a "mechaye ha'metim".
