Why the world needs Wonder Woman

1 min read

Wonder Woman 1984 has been one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2020.

Set in 1984, during the Cold War, Diana Prince comes into conflict with two formidable foes—media businessman Maxwell Lord and friend-turned-enemy Barbara Ann Minerva (Cheetah), while reuniting with her love interest Steve Trevor.

This film is a sequel to 2017’s well received “Wonder Woman” movie, the first female led superhero picture in history.

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins from a script she wrote with Geoff Johns and David Callaham. It will star Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman alongside Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen in supporting roles.

Wonder Woman has been a pop culture icon since her emergence in 1940. As a founding member of the Justice League, and one third of DC Comic’s heroic “trinity,” it always astounded me that it took over 70 years for this character to have a movie franchise.

As an inspiration to so many, Wonder Woman has been a shining example of heroism for generations. She’s strong, compassionate, powerful, emotional, graceful, fierce and so much more.

Her broad range of depth has captured the imaginations of countless individuals.

In a year where the world feels like it’s falling apart, Wonder Woman has brought a glimmer of normalcy and hope. Yet, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, her second solo movie has had to reschedule it’s theatrical release date numerous times.

Her existence aspires greatness. People confide in her character and yearn to be like her. She literally emboldens hearts of men, women and non gender specific individuals with courage, affection and benevolence.

She teaches individuals that they can be their own heroes. You just have to accept yourself for who you are and not what the world wants you to be. Wonder Woman hones her abilities and advocates for others to do the same.

Diana makes the world a wondrous place, and that’s why the planet needs Wonder Woman.

“Wonder Woman 1984” is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures theatrically on Dec. 25, 2020. The film will also stream digitally on HBO Max for a month beginning on that same date. It will debut theatrically in international markets that do not have HBO Max on Dec. 16, 2020.
