Let’s take a trip back to Themyscira.
HBO Max posted the opening scene of Wonder Woman 1984 Just two weeks before the start on the streamer. As fans prepare (including this author) for the 1984 HBO Max release of Wonder Woman, we’ve gobbled up all of the new information we can get about the sequel. Recent highlights of the DCEU movie included news to be released in 4K Ultra HD on HBO Max. Additionally, early responses and reviews from critics were mostly positive and full of praise, with the movie’s success being highlighted as a bit of a fleeting popcorn fare.
The opening scene of Wonder Woman 1984 brings us back to Themyscira, the home of the Amazons. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) can be heard in voice-over when she tells us about a moment of her youth and how much she misses her homeland. We see young Diana running to a huge stadium full of the Amazon. This is where the Themysciran version of the Olympics that we saw in previous trailers unfolds. Diana seems ready to prove her worth, even though she is much younger than the other competitors. But before Diana can show off, her aunt Antiope (Robin Wright), comes in to offer some important advice.

While I’m not entirely thrilled that this scene popped up online so shortly before the movie started, I’m not mad at getting a preview of the upcoming epic story. I’m a sucker for all Wonder Woman has to offer. Previewing the next chapter in your DCEU history is a pleasure. Plus, this seems like a strong start to the story. Who wouldn’t want to go to Themyscira now?
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in select theaters and on HBO Max on December 25th. Check out the opening scene from the DCEU sequel below.
