The second Wonder Woman film might be a year away, but today we got a tantalising taste of what to expect with the release of the movie's official teaser poster.

And what a tease it is. Unveiled by Wonder Woman actor herself Gal Gadot, along with the film's director Patty Jenkins, the poster for Wonder Woman 1984 is a suitably retro masterpiece. 

With its bold and straightforward layout, this teaser is up there with the most inspirational of poster designs. We're a big fan of its saturated colours, and the front and centre positioning of Wonder Woman herself. There's also the new costume design reveal that's sure to excite fans. 

The artwork is a welcome change to some of the crowded superhero posters of recent years, which lead us to ask: are movie posters in a design crisis? If the poster for Wonder Woman 1984 is anything to go by, the answer is: not anymore.

Comic book fans have been lapping up the poster on social media. Many have commented that the lurid colours and striking design means that the poster has gone "full Ragnarok". This is a reference to the Marvel film Thor Ragnarok, the official poster for which was also warmly received by designers.

Don't get us wrong, we love the poster for Wonder Woman 1984. But question whether its design is authentically 1980s-themed, as the film title suggests. The neon colours and eye-catching graphics have lead us to debate whether they're more suited to the '90s? (The stacked metallic 'W' lettering calls to mind the '90s logo for WWF wrestling.)

Either way, this Wonder Woman poster has a very retro feel about it, but also looks stylish and appealing to modern audiences to, which is no easy feat. All we've got to do now is wait a year to see if the film lives up to the standard of its poster design.
