Wonder Woman 1984 currently operates in Indian cinemas. Patty Jenkins’ direction brings Gaz Gadot back to the role of an Amazonian superhero. Set in the 1980s, the DC film pits Gal Gadot’s Diana against Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah and Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord.
The film has received mostly positive reviews, although critics have stated that it is not as good as the original 2017 film.
What happens at the end of Wonder Woman 1984? (SPOILERS AHEAD)
In the 1980s, Diana is working as a senior anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institute, where she meets Barbara Ann Minerva (Wiig), an insecure woman who, like Diana, is powerful, confident and stylish. Wants to
Pascal’s Maxwell is a businessman who wants Dreamstone, the film’s McGuffin who kills the primary conflict in the film. It is Dreamstone who brings Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) back to Diana’s life and who turns Minerva into a cheetah. It fulfills desires but also withdraws something important. As Diana takes Steve back, her powers begin to disappear. Minerva may be powerful, but she now deserves a pure rage.
Maxwell eventually acquires Dreamstone and begins giving himself wishes. He also becomes an influential businessman, but ages and starts dying. He counts it by sucking the life force of others. As a team of Barbara and Maxwell she loves her new powers very much and does not want Diana to harm Maxwell.
Diana defeated the Chamber with the Golden Eagle armor of the great Amazonian warrior Asteria (more later). Diana then confronts Maxwell, who is using a brand new broadcast system to wish the whole world good luck. He accidentally gives America even more nuclear weapons and threatens a nuclear holocaust (perhaps the only relevance of the Cold War founding). Diana uses Truth’s lasso to convince everyone in the world to give up her wishes, revealing the loss to Maxwell. Barbara also loses her powers.

A subsequent mid-credits scene of the film shows a mysterious woman shouting from under a pole and saving people. She looks like Wonder Woman. But she is actually Asteria, the great Amazon warrior who originally wore the Golden Eagle armor that Diana wears in the final act of the film.
Also, the actor who appears as Asteria is actually Linda Carter, who essayed the role of Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series.
