Wonder Woman goes full rainbow: Gal Gadot reveals colourful new costume for 'WW84'

Justice League Photocall - London

Exactly one year before the premiere of Wonder Woman 1984, Gal Gadot has found the rainbow connection.

On Twitter today, director Patti Jenkins unveiled the first official poster for the Wonder Woman sequel, and it's easily the most colourful thing in the DC Extended Universe. The image shows Gadot wearing gold armour, on a background of '80s neon colours.

And fans are eating it up.

The new costume in particular is getting a lot of attention, with movie buffs comparing it to the robot Maria in the silent classic Metropolis, and others recognising the resemblance to Wonder Woman's "Golden Eagle Armour" in the comics.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be released nationwide in June 2020 by Warner Bros. Pictures

The whole poster is a welcome departure from the DC film universe's usual colour palette.

And is it a coincidence that DC dropped a rainbow-coloured Wonder Woman poster during Pride Month?

The (kinda) sequel to 2017's Wonder Woman finds Diana Prince getting pulled into the Cold War during the Reagan Era and going up against a new villain, Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). Diana's Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) also appears in the '80s-set story, despite seeming to have died in World War I.

Wonder Woman 1984 opens in UK cinemas June, 2020.
