"Wonder Woman 1984" began filming last June, meaning production lasted a little over six months. Surprisingly, every look of the film made available featured Gadot and Pine together.

This includes official images released by Jenkins and unofficial photos of the set.

We Got This Covered reports that Gadot praised the cast and crew and singled out Patty Jenkins for leading the team. Gal Gadot said she is excited for the fans to see what the cast and crew have been working on for so long. According to Gadot, they ended up filming in 3 countries and worked with 1,000 crew members who came to set every day.

'Wonder Woman 1984' release delayed

While production is complete, fans will have to wait a while for a trailer. Warner Bros. originally scheduled "Wonder Woman 1984" for a November 2019 release, but they were forced to push it back to June 2020. It's more likely we will see a trailer next summer. The first "Wonder Woman" became the highest-grossing film of summer 2017, earning $412 million domestically and $821 million worldwide.

Since fans have to wait a while to see the next chapter, fans can head to the theaters in the meantime and watch "Aquaman." "Aquaman" has been doing a good job of anchoring the DC Extended Universe, meaning "Aquaman" might end up with a sequel of his own. Fans will also have the chance to see "Shazam" when it releases April 5, 2019.
