The success of Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman at the box office elicited many to believe that a sequel was imminent. Thankfully that has now been confirmed, with a tease as to where it will take place.
Actually, when is the more accurate term. Warner Bros. Pictures chief Toby Emmerich took over the role last December and has been working hard to understand all he can about the DC Universe. As he told Variety, that future plan definitely includes Diana Prince and confirmed that Jenkins is already in the early stages of working on the sequel.
He also confirmed it wouldn't be another World War 1 piece, but that it will be set in the past. As to where in the past, he is leaving fans a very broad breadcrumb trail, saying coyly “It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017."
That means World War II is always a possibility, but it doesn't necessarily mean it has to be during war time. It could always jettison to the modern day, but that seems unlikely unless it is like the first film, where the modern day bookends the main story.
Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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 is directed by Patty Jenkins and is written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder. The film stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
