Less than two months has passed since its release (and a whopping $745.8 Million Worldwide), and fans are already anxious for details regarding the next Wonder Woman film. Not even director Patty Jenkins has confirmed to direct the sequel (officially, that is), but news arrived on what could be the Amazonian’s next adventure.
Screen Rant has learned about production details regarding the sequel, and it looks like it will take place during the 1980s. In this time period, “the film will send Diana against the forces of Soviet Union in the closing days of the Cold War.” It is also believed that the same production team of the first movie will remain for the sequel, and confirming that legendary writer Geoff Johns will develop the script. Meanwhile, Patty Jenkins is said to be negotiating her return with a new contract deal.
SPOILER ALERT FROM THE FIRST FILM!
The most surprising information about this report is the return of none other than Captain Steve Trevor. Chris Pine is set to return for the sequel, but no information on what or why is he back (Winter Soldier-ish vibe, much?). Screen Rant believes that his return could be due to the immense popularity of the character and the wonderful (no pun intended) relationship between Steve and Diana. This makes sense since Patty Jenkins has stated she would like to take the Amazonian Warrior to America. As to how this would play out, either it be Steve’s revival or his descendant, fans will have to wait.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
Wonder Woman is currently playing in theaters.
