During a panel for the See Jane Salon Power event in Los Angeles, producer Deborah Snyder mentioned that Wonder Woman will begin principal photography in London this November.
Wonder Woman is the most popular female comic-book superhero of all time. It’s exciting the Amazonian Goddess is finally getting her just cinematic due next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice followed by her own standalone film in 2017.
Not much is known about Wonder Woman other than the casting of Gal Gadot and what we have seen in the trailers for Batman v Superman. The standalone film will be directed by Patty Jenkins after Michelle Maclaren dropped out.
Last fall, Bleeding Cool did a story saying the Wonder Woman standalone film will take place during the 1920s with later sequels taking place during World War II and then modern day. Well, according to my sources here in Hollywood that is not exactly true.
The latest rumor I am hearing is the first half of Wonder Woman standalone film will actually take place during World War I. Again, World War I not II. The second half of the film takes place during modern day.
Because of the intense secrecy surrounding most DCEU films at the moment, this latest bit gets the rumor stamp pending further confirmation. With Wonder Woman rumored to be at least 200 years old during the events of Batman v Superman, it is within the realm of possibility that Diana was around during the first World War.
Wonder Woman will be the first solo DC film following Batman v Superman and will drop in theaters on June 23, 2017.
