With a filmography that includes Agents of SHIELD, Supergirl, and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, Jessie Graff's stuntwork has been showcased in some pretty epic ways. In addition, a slew of fans know Graff for her frequent appearances on American Ninja Warrior and Sasuke -- and her latest feat has gotten quite a lot of attention. A video of Graff competing on American Ninja Warrior last month has gone viral, which showcases her performance in the season's Seattle/Tacoma City Qualifiers.
Graff went on to place eighth overall in the season, with a time of 2:45:38. This marks her latest performance she has made in the American Ninja Warrior franchise, after breaking a slew of records on the show since 2013.
Graff can next be seen WW84, which will follow Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) on a new adventure in the 1980s, which is expected to pave new ground for the character amongst mainstream audiences.
"Other than the wonderful work Lynda Carter did in the TV show, this character was never really told on the big screen." Gadot explained during an interview in 2017. "We just see her origin story. But there’s so much 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."
The cast of WW84 also includes Chris Pine, who will be reprising his role as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig, who will be playing Barbara Ann Minerva/Cheetah, and Pedro Pascal who will be playing a currently unknown role.
"You know what was cool," the film's director, Patty Jenkins said in a recent interview. "We're treating the era differently than I've seen so far, which I feel like there have a lot of interesting versions of doing the era. In our version, as a child of the '8os myself, yes there was funny, ha-ha outfits I can't believe I wore, for sure."
"But there's also incredible music, incredible art," the director continued. "And so I really felt like the 1980s is mankind at their most extreme and at their best. It was when we could do anything we wanted and we had no idea of the price yet. So we have really committed to that version of the '80s, where it's not needle drops, and it's not a bunch of jokes. It's actually the most aspirational and elegant version of the '80s in many places.0comments
