This photo was revealed just after director Patty Jenkins revealed the first photo confirming Chris Pine's return as Steve Trevor in the film.

This photo may be an example of something Jenkins mentioned at CinemaCon, saying that the 1980s setting of the film will hold temptations for Diana.

"[Wonder Woman is an] optimistic and positive character," Jenkins said. "This film set in the '80s, she has to deal with the temptation of our world, and face extraordinary odds."

There's plenty temptation to go around for Diana in the 1980s, an era historical characterized by excess, Cold War dread, and paranoia regarding government control and intrusion into citizens' private lives. It is possible that the WW84 logo, which seems to indicate that the film will take place specifically in the year 1984, was chosen as a deliberate homage to George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984.

Jenkins has also previously stated that she’s looking forward to being able to fully unleash Wonder Woman’s power in the sequel without having to establish her history by telling her origin story.

"The greatest thing about making this movie was the fact that you're really building to the Wonder Woman that we all love, but not until the end of the movie," Jenkins said. "The most exciting thing about [the sequel] is literally seeing her loose in the world now, living those classic stories. Here's Wonder Woman, and what can she do?"
