Some (or maybe all... who knows) of Wonder Woman’s upcoming sequel Wonder Woman 1984 was filmed at Alexandria, Virginia’s Landmark Mall. Perhaps I’ll update this with more info when the movie (or a trailer) comes out, but then again probably not.

The Landmark Mall has been closed for renovations since 2017.
