Wonder Woman has been a resounding success. As such, the attention has turned to its sequel and how exactly the Amazonian princess will tackle her next adventure. While certain elements are still up in the air, a new report suggests the sequel is happening, and will take Wonder Woman to a completely different setting.
Note: There are major Wonder Woman spoilers ahead.
Screen Rant claims to have learned a few production details that shed light on what Warner Bros. has planned for Wonder Woman 2. The sequel will allegedly take place in the 1980’s in the last days of the Cold War. The script is being developed by Geoff Johns along with Patty Jenkins, the latter of whom is still working on a new contract but is expected to return as director.
Wonder Woman 2 will also see the return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, who ultimately sacrifices his life to help save the lives of others. It begs the question: How in the world will Steve Trevor return?
It’s a no-brainer decision for Warner Bros. to bring back Chris Pine. He was one of the best aspects of the first movie and his character in the sequel will yield a lot of good will even if he only plays a small role.
There was much debate as to whether the next Wonder Woman would jump from its WWI-era origin story to a more modern setting, but it appears it’ll continue to explore Wonder Woman’s pre-21st century history. It’s a welcome creative decision as most comic book movies now take place in modern times. A new setting is always helpful when creating new stories.
Aside from this latest round of news, little else is know about Wonder Woman 2, including a release date or its role within the DCEU.
