The film potentially teased what to expect from the third film with its post-credits scene.
Moreover, Full Circle’s very own Katie Gilstrap found things to enjoy while viewing the sequel. Her official review says “there are some good components in Wonder Woman 1984. Wiig, Pascal, and Gadot all play really well off each other. The bright cinematography catches the eye, and I always felt a part of the movie. There’s nothing in the film that really takes me out of feeling like I was in a comic book movie.”
