Diana Prince

That is Wonder Woman’s civilian name. Born and bred on hidden, mythical Utopian island called Themyscira, Diana was a naive woman with superpowers when she left her home to fight for humanity. She is now more mature and aware of how the world works.

Steve Trevor

In 2017’s Wonder Woman, Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor met his maker after his aircraft exploded in midair. Or did he? Whatever it be, Steve is back in Wonder Woman 1984. An American pilot, who was also a spy tasked to find out what the Germans are up to, Steve first crossed paths with Diana in the first film. Diana and Steve halted the nefarious designs of the German general Erich Ludendorff and Ares, the Greek god of war, who was pulling the strings.

Barbara Minerva or Cheetah

Cheetah is the arch-nemesis of Wonder Woman in comics. In Wonder Woman 1984, Kristen Wiig is essaying the Barbara Minerva iteration of the supervillain. Barbara is an archaeologist who becomes Diana’s friend. At some point, she gains the magical powers of a superhuman with Cheetah like combat style and agility, and also comes in conflict with Diana.

Maxwell Lord

Pedro Pascal plays Maxwell Lord, a businessman who has promised to give people what they want. He possesses a mystical stone that allows him to grant wishes. However, nothing comes for free, and he takes back something in return. And that cannot be good, can it?

Robin Wright’s Antiope is dead in the current timeline, but there are always flashbacks. She has had a significant impact on Diana and is perhaps more responsible for what Diana became than even Diana’s mother.

Connie Nielsen will also return as Diana’s mother and the ruler of Themyscira, Hippolyta.
