First look at Wonder Woman 1984

Hollywood's love affair with eighties nostalgia shows no signs of stopping. As someone who grew up during the decade of Transformers and Michael Jackson's moonwalk, I'm not going to complain.

This week, DC Universe (DCU) fans (myself included) got their first glimpse of Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 1984, which sees the actor reunited with Chris Pine (Star Trek) and director Patty Jenkins.

Jenkins' Wonder Woman was a breath of fresh air amidst the murky and, frankly, dull DCU cinematic adventures in the wake of Chris Nolan's excellent Dark Knight Trilogy. So, whilst the director has evidently drawn inspiration from seminal eighties graphic novel Watchmen, I hope Jenkins doesn't forget a sense of fun, too.

Wonder Woman 1984 is in cinemas November 2019.

Looking forward to new adventures with everyone's favourite Amazonian Princess? Let me know in the comments below.

Chris Pine's classic Star Trek spoof on SNL

Chris Pine took over the role of Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot in 2009.

Two sequels followed and now he's gone full William Shatner in this hilarious Star Trek skit for Saturday Night Live (SNL).

Pine can be seen next in the upcoming Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot this July.

Next Starfleet voyage is Star Trek Beyond

Director Justin Lin took to Twitter to announce the title of his forthcoming Star Trek movie, which began production in Vancouver last week and reunites Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Simon Pegg.

Star Trek Beyond.

Justin Lin has taken over the helm of the successfully rebooted franchise following JJ Abrams departure to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"It's all new and fresh," Lin told Deadline Hollywood earlier this month. "The Klingons, Romulans, and other species are great, but it's time to go further. It has been fun to focus on creating whole new worlds and species."

After Star Trek Into Darkness reprised The Wrath of Khan, what are you hoping for? Let me know in the comments below.
