Wonder Woman 1984 Review: Refreshing and Wondrous!

In this age of superhero movies, many characters have graced the silver screen such as the King of Atlantis Aquaman or the once unknown Guardians of the Galaxy. Yet among these characters is in fact one of the most iconic heroes of all time: Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman has been a cornerstone for comic books for years, and has played a major role in pop culture with various appearances on televisions as well as video games. The heroine finally made her live action debut in Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice which led to her getting her own movie in 2017. Now the warrior princess is back in the new blockbuster Wonder Woman 1984. Directed by Patty Jenkins (director of the first film), Wonder Woman 1984 is as much a prequel as it is a sequel as it centers on the heroine’s time in the 1980s. The movie certainly took its time getting to theaters as it was originally supposed to arrive on November 2019, but was pushed back to June 2020. However, due to a global pandemic, the movie left the summer and was slated to debut in the fall-only for the movie to be pushed back yet again. So, at long last, the movie has arrived in not just in theaters but also on Warner Bros’ streaming service:,HBO Max. With all these delays, one could only hope that this sequel would live up to the hype; and after seeing the movie for myself, it is in this Film Adventurer’s opinion that Wonder Woman 1984 did not go as expected-but that is a good thing.
