I’ll start by saying I REALLY hope I’m wrong about Wonder Woman 1984. I think Warner Brothers & DC have another dud on their hands. This trailer just makes me want to double down on my dud predictions. Sad. I’m rooting for this franchise, but it has all the hallmarks of a self-fulfilling prophesy of death.
The studio does what it always does (especially Warner & DC): too many jokes. Audiences love moments of levity when the subject is serious. It breaks the tension. Then the studio wants more jokes. Because they tested well. Then you get joke heavy movies that suck. Superman 3, Batman & Robin, etc., etc. Jokes will ruin comic book movies.

And this whole thing looks like a joke. Set in kitschy 1984! For all those jokes! Hahahahaha!
An SNL alum as Wonder Woman’s nemesis “Cheetah.” Hahahahahah!
Hey look! Wonder Woman’s boyfriend doesn’t understand the craaaaaaazy 80’s! Hahahahahahah!
Make it stop.
The first movie was good because it took the subject seriously. We cared. I want to see a sequel to that movie. Not a 200 million dollar SNL skit about girl power. (RELATED: ‘The Batman’ Teaser Trailer Reveals a Very Dark Movie [VIDEO])
Good luck DC. Looks like you got screwed. Again.
Hope I’m wrong.
