Being Set During the Cold War

  • 'Wonder Woman 2' will take Gal Gadot to the Cold War in the 1980s

Rather than setting a sequel in the timeline after the events of this fall's Justice League movie, a new report hints that a sequel to Wonder Woman will again be set in a pre-Man of Steel world. Further, DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is said to be developing the script with Patty Jenkins, who directed the first film. Jenkins return, however, isn't official yet.

What's more interesting is that Screen Rant says that Chris Pine will be returning as Steve Trevor. His debut movie brought in just over $783 million worldwide while Wonder Woman's total now stands at $745 million. Gal Gadot will be facing off against the Soviet Union this time around. The actor, who played the war intelligence officer #Steve Trevor in the summer blockbuster, could still be part of the sequel if director Patty Jenkins had her way.

The character even framed a Wonder Woman necklace with heart-shaped hands.

Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we now also know what the story may involve.

"Wonder Woman 2" allegedly will be a period film like its predecessor.


Leaving aside this, the idea of a spy thriller-cum-superhero film is an interesting, if familiar one.

The sequel to Wonder Woman will reportedly be another historical adventure, trading World War I for the waning days of the Cold War. Diana venturing into the Underworld, battling Hades, and being given the chance to save Steve Trevor would make for a compelling sequel.

For now, I'm quite happy to enjoy Wonder Woman's exploits when she flew solo from the rest of the DC Universe.

Since Justice League takes place nearly an entire century after the events of Wonder Woman and World War I, that means there are decades of stories worth exploring in future sequels. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time.
