Corrected entry: When Diana and Steve take a fighter plane, the seats are side by side. In a real fighter plane the seats are one behind the other.


Correction: The plane is an F111, which has the seats side-by-side.

Corrected entry: The movie's plot of a magic wishing stone seems to have been inspired by Gary K. Wolf's book Who Censored Roger Rabbit where a lantern granted wishes. Both though did/appear to be a great cost/reversal of fortune.


Correction: Considering the story of Aladdin involves a magical object leading to wishes being granted, connecting it to a specific book is a stretch. It's been a storytelling device for hundreds of years, if not longer.

Corrected entry: The jocks who are recklessly driving their Trans-Am causing Wonder Woman to give them the Big Boot are also driving a car in Virginia without the required front license plate. (00:11:30)

Correction: That's not a mistake (factual or otherwise). Some people choose not to. One time I bought a new car that didn't have a front plate holder (the holes weren't drilled in) and the dealership told me when I get my plates I can come back and they'll install it for me. I never did and drove it for 10 years without front plates in a state that requires it.


Corrected entry: Wonder Woman says they can't fly commercially because Steve Trevor doesn't have a passport. Except the movie established that only Wonder Woman sees him as Steve Trevor. To the rest of the world he's still the man whose body Steve has inhabited, so there's no reason he can't use his passport.

Correction: In 1989, the earliest date I could find records for, only 3% of US citizens had passports. The overwhelming likelihood is that the real man doesn't have a passport, and given they've spent time in his apartment too, looking for clothes in a montage we didn't see every second of, they clearly also looked around for other relevant information/documents.

Correction: There's no reason to assume the man he is inhabiting has a passport.

Except common sense? The point is she says Steve doesn't have a passport, not thinking about the original body owner having one. Or getting one really quickly.


The percentage of American citizens with passports is quite low. It's far more likely that he would not have a passport than that he would.

Factual error: When Diana first brings Steve into the DC Metro, the modern-day signage visible inside L'Enfant Plaza Station is not era-appropriate to 1984. It includes markers for the Green Line (opened in 1991) and Silver Line (opened in 2014), and all markers are shown with printed abbreviations, which were not added until the Silver Line opened.

More trivia for Wonder Woman 1984

Question: Why is Asteria living among regular people? She couldn't return home?


Answer: This was not explained in WW84, so any answer would be speculation. It is rumored that Lynda Carter, who played Asteria, may appear in Wonder Woman 3, which will hopefully explain her backstory. She is probably similar to Diana, who also chose to live among regular humans, secretly using her powers for good.
