Wonder Woman 2 is SO ON!
Multiple sources are reporting Wonder Woman 2 is ON and Patty Jenkins is definitely back at the helm. According to Warner Bros. chief Toby Emmerich, the movie will take place in the United States but, like the first movie, set in the past.
“It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017.” Emmerich says coyly.
You might recall back in 2014, Wonder Woman was originally pitched as a trilogy with the first film of the three set in the 1920s. The sequel would happen during WWII and the third would take place in modern times. Of course, Wonder Woman’s setting wasn’t the 1920s, it was World War ONE! Does than mean the sequel will happen during the second world war? Not necessarily.
A World War II setting would be more of the same. And it’s believed the reason the first movie wasn’t set in WWII was because it would be too similar to Captain America: The First Avenger. So it’s likely Princess Diana will pop up next during a time of great social upheaval, either the 1920s/30s or the 1960s. Both would be cool but my preference would be the women’s movement / civil rights movement of the late 60s.
What say you?
