Gal Gadot portrayed the eponymous character in the first film, a commercial success earning more than $800 million worldwide. It also became the most successful live-action movie directed by a woman.

This time, Wonder Woman fights villains in 1984.

"It was mankind at its best and worst," director Patty Jenkins told The Associated Press during the production of the movie. "We see Wonder Woman in a period of time that is us at our most extreme. We thought it could go on forever, everything we were doing right then."

Although his return is not yet explained, Chris Pine's Steve Trevor character is also featured in the 2:30-minute trailer.

Trevor seemingly gave his life by flying a bomb away from its intended target in the first movie.

The movie is in theaters June 5, 2020.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
