In 1984, Diana Prince, the heroine of this film, meets her strongest enemy. They are Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah. They want to destroy the world. But Diana Prince has sworn to protect the world. So, she fights against the ruthless ambitions of Maxwell Lord and Cheetah. In the film, we will see Wonder Woman AKA Diana Prince being face-to-face with Cheetah AKA Barbara Ann Minerva during a showdown at the White House.
The Story of Wonder Woman 1984 (2020):
We don’t know much about the story yet. But as the title suggested, Wonder Woman 1984 is going to be a film about 70 years after the first film. In 1984, a time of comfortable material excess, when the world is moving towards an absolute nuclear war, Wonder Woman fights against her enemy Maxwell Lord. Maxwell Lord has something known as the Chaos Shard and he wants to achieve every power.
Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah has been designed to be the main supervillain in Wonder Woman 1984, but the trailer gives us a look of Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord too. In the comic, Maxwell Lord was a son of a wealthy, benevolent businessman. Lord was very affected by his father’s death. Lord believes that power is everything on the earth. But the DCEU version of Maxwell Lord is a little different from the comic. Here, he is more focused on capitalism rather than having power.
Though in the trailer we see Wonder Woman and Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva having a friendly conversation, we all know that the friendship will not last long. Dr. Barbara Ann Minerva will be Cheetah. They will have a devastating fight. But we do not know yet how Barbara Ann Minerva becomes Cheetah. Well, to any comic book lover, the appearance of Kristen Wiig as Cheetah is a little familiar. Because the uniform she wears in the film is designed after the pre-transformation Selina Kyle, who wore the same dress in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.
The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer introduced us with Steve Trevor’s mysterious return. In Wonder Woman (2017), he was a pilot who sacrificed his life to save the world. Diana was truly in love with him. After the death of Steve Trevor, Diana suffered from deep grief. But in the trailer, we see Diana and Steve hugging each other. It seems like Maxwell Lord has raised Steve from death by his power.

Diana will see her lost love, Steve Trevor, who was presumed dead decades ago.

Soundtrack and Music of Wonder Woman 1984 (2020):
Composer Hans Zimmer has written the music for Wonder Woman 1984, replacing Rupert Gregson-Williams who scored the first Wonder Woman. The song we hear in the trailer is “Blue Monday” by New Order, but it has a twist. This version is an instrumental remix rather than the original version. In 1983, “Blue Monday” was first released on New Order’s album named Power, Corruption, & Lies. This song matches perfectly with the era, Wonder Woman 1984 is going to show us.
