Well’p, Warner Brothers released the official title for the Wonder Woman sequel: Wonder Woman 1984! And they’re BRINGING BACK COMMANDER SALAMANDER! Well, they’re making a CS “set”. But I’m stoked and can’t wait to try to take a walk around and wear the old buttons I’ve got from the original store.
Sadly, the DC and NoVa locations are closed sets, so getting a peek around is probably not in the cards. But? Huzzah for WW84 getting started! They’ve even given us a quick peek at what’s going on… (Click on the pictures for the full high-res images!)
No 411 on the plot or storyline, but that’s okay. I can wait. Sorta. Read on for all the details from the studio!
