Wonder Woman 1984 will debut on HBO Max on December 25, 2020. Just in time for Christmas, really. To commemorate this, and to build up the hype for it, Warner Bros. have released the opening scene for the film.
The opening scene from Wonder Woman 1984 shows a much younger Diana (Gal Gadot) competing in a giant arena filled with cheering Amazons. The arena was complete with complex mechanisms that the contestants have to traverse. Yeah, it’s basically Themyscira’s version of American Ninja Warrior. But with Amazons. And apparently, they don’t mind kids taking part in it.
Wonder Woman 1984: Amazonian Ninja
Yep. It seems that Themyscira has no minimum age requirement to be able to take part in some fairly dangerous sports. Although to be fair, they are Amazons. It’s entirely possible that on Wonder Woman’s home island, this is a fairly normal thing. Except, we also see in this opening scene from Wonder Woman 1984 that the other Amazon contestants are much older (in their late teens) than little Diana. Which suggests that Diana is an oddity rather than a normality.
To be fair, the original Wonder Woman film showed that Diana was a natural warrior, even in her youth. It probably shouldn’t be surprising then that whoever is running this contest would allow Diana to compete in spite of her young age. A little leaning from Queen Hippolyta probably didn’t hurt either. Thus, it does make sense that Diana is able to be in this Themysciran Ninja Warrior show. Now, whether she’d win is another question entirely. We’ll just have to see Wonder Woman 1984 for ourselves to find out.
Warner Bros. has decided to release the opening scene from Wonder Woman 1984, directed by Patty Jenkins, to the public. The scene shows a tiny Diana competing in Themysciran Ninja Warriors. Why? And how does she do? Well, catch the film on December 25, 2020 on HBO Max to find out for yourself.
