The First Wonder Woman Movie Will Be Set in the 1920s.

I have been informed by those who have seen the greenlit treatment that the film will spends the first half on Paradise Island with warring Amazon factions vying for control.

An arrival of a man on the island changes that status quo, as he asks the Amazons for help. Not necessarily Steve Trevor either…

Because when Wonder Woman joins him on his return to the world of Man, we all discover that it is the 1920s. And the film will then show Diana exploring that world – a world where women have only just got the vote – from her… unique perspective.

He also mentions that the sequel (if it happens) would take place in the 30s and 40s, during World War II, and a third film could possibly take place during the modern day with the Justice League.

It’s not a bad premise. Slightly different from the Wonder Woman TV show, but still unique and adaptive for a new audience. Let’s just hope it really is the Wonder Woman movie fans have earned.

  1. I swear if they screw this up, there will be no retribution.

    • It’s D.C. They probably will.

  2. I didn’t even realize Gal Gadot was in this! Hell yes, Fast Five.

  3. Marvel shows Steve Rogers back in WWII in their movies, so now DC has to show one of their characters back in WWII.

    • Yeah, I guess. And also WWII is bloody ripe for storytelling.
