So, About Those Wonder Woman 1984 Test Screenings
Last month we reported on recent test screenings of Wonder Woman 1984. People in attendecnce indicated that the film was “a complete disaster” and “hokey.”
There were also some concerns about the following plot points:
It’s claimed some magic rock gives Pedro Pascal’s Max Lord his powers, which enables him to grant wishes to other people; however, those wishes cause “Monkey Paw” horrific side-effects and in turn power Max Lord even further.
Wonder Woman accidentally wishes for Steve Trevor back; however, per the “Monkey Paw” side effect, Steve Trevor is reincarnated in some other man’s body, with only Diana able to see him.
The wish also causes Wonder Woman to lose some of her powers, to the point where she is vulnerable to bullets and knives.
This is also how Kristen Wiig becomes Cheetah, by wishing it, because she wants to be like Diana, and that is how she eventually gets her Cheetah “cat” suit, super strength, etc.
Well, Wonder Woman learns about what is going on and goes after Max, which causes Cheetah to turn on Diana as she doesn’t want to surrender her new life.
And then there is the concern over invisible jets, harnessed lightning, and other elements that go into making a comic book movie, well, a comic book movie.
So, What Are We Looking at Here?
Well, she is going to harness lightning and fly on it.
As for the rest of it, well, it certainly looks like Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor, is back, but it also looks like standard superhero fare here operating in a standard superhero universe.
Hopefully, this will be less like Iron Man 2 and more like Captain America: Civil War.
Wonder Woman 1984 premieres June 5, 2020, in a theatre near you.
