“Wonder Woman” is taking the District back to the ’80s filming for the franchise’s sequel. The sequel, which star Gal Gadot revealed is titled “Wonder Woman 1984” in a tweet, has shut down parts of the area.
Wisconsin Avenue between Volta Place and M Street will be shut down all day on Thursday and is expected to reopen at 8 p.m. Filming will continue on July 1. The area has been transformed to go back in time to 1984. Retro police cars have been spotted in the area. A former D.C. landmark, Commander Salamander, has also been revived for the film. The punk clothing store shut down in 2010.
