Wonder Woman 1984 is in the middle of production, and despite taking place 70 years after its predecessor, it will have at least some characters from the first film. Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is back, for example. And now, two more beloved characters are set to make their return.
According to PORTER, actresses Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen are reprising their roles as General Antiope and Queen Hippolyta, respectively, in Wonder Woman 1984. The two recently shot a flashback sequence for the sequel in Spain. Further details beyond that are unknown.
Both characters played key supporting roles in Wonder Woman, while they had cameos in Justice League. While Hippolyta is still alive in the present day, Antiope died during Wonder Woman‘s first big battle in Themyscira. However, Antiope emerged as a big fan-favorite, so it’s great that director Patty Jenkins found a way to bring her back without undoing her sacrifice.

Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 1st, 2019. The eighth installment of the DC Films Universe stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Pedro Pascal. Patty Jenkins directs from a script that she wrote with Geoff Johns and David Callaham.
