WARNING: Potential plot SPOILERS for Wonder Woman 1984 in this article!
Wonder Woman 1984 is looking like it’ll be a key movie for the future of the DCEU, and fans are really excited to see what Diana Prince gets up to in her second standalone movie.
However, there have been reported plot details leaked after a recent test screening, and the reactions to it have been “mixed”.
The film is being directed by Patty Jenkins, who’s returned after her success with the first movie, and it’s also been revealed that Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor’s also returning, despite having died in the first Wonder Woman movie.
There are also rumours that Wonder Woman 1984 might alter the DCEU timeline, and it all has to do with Steve’s ‘resurrection’.
Anyway, back to those reported test screenings. Now, I’m always a bit cautious with these sorts of stories, because I’m always aware that these test screenings could have never happened and it’s just all someone making stuff up and putting it on Reddit.
These Wonder Woman 1984 plot leaks could be bogus
Yet, according to Cosmic Book News, the reactions to this Wonder Woman 1984 test screening were “mixed” and certain members of the audience said he movie was, “really goofy, really campy and simple, with others offering it’s too slow and plot-heavy”.
The test screening, which was held in October supposedly, didn’t go down all that well with members of the audience.
There were also some key plot details leaked from this screening, which sound really strange indeed.
According to Cosmic Book New’s plot summary, Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord is in possession of some sort of magic rock which gives him the ability to grant people’s wishes (yeah, sounds really odd already).
Yet, these wishes come with a price. So, this is how Wonder Woman ends up getting Steve Trevor back, as she accidentally wishes for him to come back from the dead, explaining how he’s alive in this movie.
These Wonder Woman 1984 plot leaks sound mad!
Yet, Steve returns in the body of another man and only Diana can see him as he did in the previous movie (looking like Chris Pine).
However, in exchange for this wish, Wonder Woman loses most of her powers, which leaves her vulnerable to things like bullets, knives… basically all sharp and pointy weapons.
This is also how Kristen Wiig’s character, Barbara Minera, ends up with the powers of a cheetah. She wishes for them in order to fulfil her lifelong dream to become a hero like Wonder Woman.
However, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman discovers that Lord is using people’s wishes to increase his own abilities and powers, and she tries to bring him to justice.
Yet, Cheetah then turns against her hero, because she doesn’t want to give up her new powers.
These reported plot leaks also went on to reveal that Diana and Steve steal a jet in the hunt for Pascal’s Lord and she manages to turn it invisible using her recently discovered new powers.
Steve Trevor’s return in Wonder Woman 1984 revealed
Everybody ends up in Washington D.C. where there’s a big showdown between Lord, Cheetah on one side, and Wonder Woman and Steve on the other.
Lord apparently then accidentally undoes all the wishes he had granted and everything goes back to the way it was before.
This means that Steve Trevor dies once again, and the person who’s body he was ‘possessing’ returns with no memories of what had just happened.
Yet, he apparently strikes up a conversation with Diana and asks her out on a date, which she apparently agrees to, and that’s the strangest part of all of this in my mind.
Is this really how Wonder Woman 1984 is going to play out?
This does sound a bit wacky, but I think it’ll actually be much better when it all plays out on the big screen.
And again, these supposed plot leaks might be a load of nonsense, so take it all with a big pinch of salt.
