Next fall, the best and most successful DC Extended Universe movie (or whatever the cinematic universe is called) will be getting a sequel called Wonder Woman 1984. It was heavily rumored that the Amazon Princess’s second solo film would take place in the 80’s and this title puts that rumor to bed.
Of course, the only logical thing to do with this information is to make a parody poster of Justice League that looks like it’s from the 80’s. Coincidentally, BossLogic thought the same thing and shared this poster on Twitter.

A few funny things to note. Cyborg is rocking that flattop and a stylish gold chain necklace with the Transformers Autobots logo on it. Henry Cavill is sporting the mullet, which Superman of course famously actually did have for a while in the comics, and the mustache is just the perfect touch (seriously who’s decision was it to just CGI it off?).
I also want to set your eyes to Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen in this poster. He basically looks exactly the same except for what I guess is an 80’s hat. But also, he clearly is holding a smartphone. I’m no mathematician, but according to my calculations, wouldn’t have existed in the 80’s. I guess we can chalk it up to the Flash time traveling with the Speed Force?
I’m not sure why Chris Pine’s character, either Steve Trevor from Wonder Woman or whoever he is in Wonder Woman 1984, since he wasn’t in Justice League. But, that could just be a nod to his character being in 1984.
Other than that, Ben Affleck and Jason Momoa just look like younger versions of themselves and Wonder Woman just has sunglasses on.
However, if you’re a gamer like me, then this poster might look very familiar to you. Let me show you:
From the way the characters are portrayed on the poster, to the font of the title, to the DC logo, this poster is also clearly a homage to Grand Theft Auto.
As popular as Wonder Woman has been since her cameo in Batman v Superman in 2016, don’t forget that was the big screen debut of this character who has three quarters of a century of material in the comics and Gal Gadot is excited to be able to continue telling Diana’s story on the silver screen.
“Other than the wonderful work Lynda Carter did in the TV show, this character was never really told on the big screen. We just see her origin story. But there’s so much more to explore with this character who has 75 years of legacy, there’s so much material and so many ways and I’m psyched about it.”
Justice League is out now on the physical or digital media of your choice. Wonder Woman 1984 is set for release on November 1, 2019, with Aquaman later this year on December 21st.
