Will 'Wonder Woman 2' Take Place In The 1980s?
Wonder Woman has been in theaters for almost six weeks now, and it's still the topic of conversation in the film world. That should tell you something: It's a bonafide hit.
Director Patty Jenkins' film broke the mold of superhero movies, got the praise of fans and critics, and earned Warner Bros. a pretty large paycheck. Of course, when something hits this big at the box office, a sequel is not only expected, but usually guaranteed. And, because we as a people thrive on instant gratification, we have tons of questions about what that sequel will look like.
Though there has not been an official announcement regarding a followup to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) hit yet, Patty Jenkins has hinted in the past she'd be down to direct a sequel, even saying she sees it taking place in America. She told Entertainment Weekly,
She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time.
New reports suggest that the film might not take place entirely (if at all) in America, though. That's right, according to Screen Rant, the sequel will bring Diana into the 1980s, over 60 years after we last saw her, to battle the Soviet Union during the final days of the Cold War.
While that's exciting AF, there's even better news, it seems the same report might answer another major question we've all had since seeing Wonder Woman: Will Chris Pine return as Steve Trevor for a sequel?
Apparently, Steve Trevor will be in the sequel, which now prompts an even bigger question for fans: How the f*ck is that gonna happen because he literally exploded in the first movie and people don't usually survive being blown up, ya know?
I guess since we never *technically* saw the body, anything is possible, especially since we're dealing with the DCEU, where weirder sh*t has happened.
I guess the moral of the story is being a DCEU fan is exhausting. Every time we get some major news, we're met with even more questions. Here's to waiting until the next big reveal comes around. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
