While Warner Bros. is gearing up for the upcoming releases of Aquaman in December and Shazam! in April 2019, the DC Extended Universe is already getting ready for the the epic return of the Amazon Princess in Wonder Woman 1984. The film is currently in the midst of shooting and, while much of the details of the sequel are still unknown to us, we do know that the main antagonist of Wonder Woman 1984 will be Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah, who will be played by Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig.
On top of that, we also know that Narcos and Kingsman: The Golden Circle actor Pedro Pascal has joined the cast of the film, however in a role that is being kept under wraps. Similarly, and quite curiously, Chris Pine is also returning in the sequel, despite Steve Trevor making the ultimate sacrifice in 2016’s Wonder Woman. While his return has been confirmed, the details surrounding it are a mystery — and the secrecy doesn’t stop there.
Remember the actress Soundarya Sharma from the film Ranchi Diaries? Well though she is yet to announce her next Bollywood venture, we hear that Soundarya has bagged a role of lifetime. If reports are to be believed then Soundarya Sharma has been roped in to feature in the second instalment of the DC comics film Wonder Woman that stars none other than the stunning Gal Gadot.
As per reports, the film titled Wonder Woman 1984 will feature Soundarya in a prominent role and the actress will commence shooting for the same in October. Talking about the same, Soundarya confirmed the development in a statement saying that it was exhilarating to be part of such a film and that it was literally a dream come true to play a character that she has idolized.
Though not much of Soundarya Sharma’s role in the film is known, fans across the world are eagerly anticipating the release of the film. Gadot too has been teasing fans with images from the film along with the tag #WW84 that has been generating quite a bit of hype.
