We are just a little more than a week away from the long-awaited release of Wonder Woman 1984 and Warner Bros just celebrated with the film’s digital red carpet premiere on DC Fandome.
The event was hosted by Tiffany Smith, who was joined by Gal Gadot, director Patty Jenkins, Chris Pine, Pedro Pascal, Kristen Wiig, Lynda Carter, along with a panel of lucky Wonder Woman fans, many of whom in full costume. The panel answered fan questions and talked about the experience of both making the film, and the emotions of finally sharing the film with the world more than a year after its initial scheduled release.

As the Wonder Woman 1984 premiere wrapped up, Gadot and Jenkins had two more special surprises. The first was a surprise visit to composer Hans Zimmer who was putting the final touches on the film’s theme song, along with superstar percussionist Sheila E. Gadot and Jenkins joined in by banging on the drums and then rejoining Smith on the main stage.
There the Wonder Woman duo revealed the final surprise. They screened the opening of Wonder Woman 1984 for the world to see.
In the scene, we see a young Diana on Themyscira sprinting into the Amazonian version of the Olympics, with a voiceover by Gadot. Once she arrives with the other competitors she is given a gentle warning by Robin Wright’s Antiope. Young Diana then runs up a structure while the film smash cuts to 1984 where we see an adult Wonder Woman putting her physical training to use. Enjoy the clip:
