mrp ... 2nd time for deletion and I'm not going to post any photos from Wonder Woman 2 from now on ... this time the internet mislead me in a very big way. I'm still mad about it and sorry about my frustrations with the internet today.
I'm not sure where you got the pictures, but the article I found them in made it pretty clear these were artist speculation and not actual set photos or effects photos when I read the article itself. They're pretty poor quality photoshop jobs as well, so for me anyways, it was pretty clear what they were even before I read the article.
I'm just have to let it go and let you and/or someone else to post them anyway ... thanks for your post here.
I just don't get why WW writers keep coming back to Steve Trevor / descendants of Steve Trevor - every version is the dullest character on any earth who isn't Hal Jordan or Barry Allen. I've also never understood why this uber-powerful goddess would be interested in him - it would be like a normal human "dating" a chimp.
Only most chimps are way better actors that Chris Pine.

I keep hoping that is just a working title for the film; it's awful. They couldn't call it "Claws of the Cheetah" or something like that?
Anyway, I am looking forward to this as WW was possibly the best superhero film ever and I am a huge fan of Cheetah as well. Glad Patty Jenkins is doing it again; as long as Wiig is good and they don't try to cram it too full of stuff (like they almost always do) it should be good.
I don't understand why Wonder Woman gets to be in period pieces but Batman, Superman, et al. have to make their debuts in contemporary times. It irks me to no end.
"I still regard Jesus Christ today as the chief focus of my perspective on God but not to the exclusion of other religious perspectives. God's reality is not bound by one manifestation of the divine in Jesus but can be found wherever people are being empowered to fight for freedom. Life-giving power for the poor and the oppressed is the primary criterion that we must use to judge the adequacy of our theology, not abstract concepts."

This looks really good, maybe even better than the first Black Widow trailer (and I loved the BW trailer, especially with the inclusion of David Harbour as Red Guardian). I like that it is a period piece (something I thought worked really well for Captain Marvel), and I loved the choice of music for this trailer (some version of "Blue Monday" by New Order).
Definitely will be taking my daughters to see this one as well as Black Widow. What a great time for them, getting to see strong women as the heroes/super-heroes, not just the damsel in distress for the male hero to swoop in and save.

I like the use of Blue Monday; but, it doesn't look very 1984 to me. Then again, X-Men Days of Future Past didn't look very 1970s, either. Hollywood really struggles to get period details that look and feel right, compared to UK productions. Should have talked to the GLOW producers.
If they had set it in the 1930s, they could have used this version of Blue Monday...
Kind of surprised they didn't go with Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," which was Number 1 in early 1984. That, or ZZ Top's "Legs."
"Blue Monday" was released in 1983; come on Hollywood, do your research!
I'm not really part of the audience for this film, not being a great fan of WW or any of the big DC characters in general but I'll chime in anyway: a slender model-type like Gal Gadot seems to me completely the wrong physical type to play this character or any other super-heroine that's meant to convey an impression of physical strength and force.
Of course the first movie was commercially successful so you can see why they stayed with her for the sequel. Doesn't make me want to watch it, though.
