With the success of Wonder Woman, attention is already starting to turn to the future – not just the character’s appearance in other DCEU properties, but the inevitable sequel to her own solo movie.
Wonder Woman was set during WWI and naturally speculation has arisen of just when and where the sequel would take place. Luckily for us, Toby Emmerich, the Warner Bros. chief, has commented on the very subject, saying that it will likely be set in the past, however he was a little vague on the specifics.
Confirming to Variety that Wonder Woman 2 wouldn’t be another WWI piece, he said rather coyly that: “It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017”.
That timeframe doesn’t rule out WWII as a potential setting, but also allows for a whole host of options, so really, thanks for nothing, Emmerich.
Meanwhile, DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns went on to reveal that he’s working on the story for Wonder Woman 2 with directing Patty Jenkins, stating that: ““Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.”
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman sees Patty Jenkins (Monster) directing a cast that includes Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Force Majeure), Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead) and Ann Wolf.
